No, actually there is something comforting about him being there. At least I know where he is:) Seriously, he's a good man and he's welcome there. Love is the best kind of ring and it don't get cold.

I don't do pain, so no tats here. Plus I don't like them on ladies.
If you want a tat, go for it.
If you want a ring, go for it.
One is a poor substitute for the other.
If your family and friend's expectations are putting pressure on you, you must decide who you are and be happy with it.
Any pre-marriage counselling you may get will tell you the meaning and beauty of the ring.
And you can't give that to yourself. One partner gives to the other.

If you can't make this decision, and be content with it, how are you to make the bigger ones?

If I wasn't so tired I would have used a smiley guy on the post, LOL.
But ya'll gave me an idea! You can always swap out the diamond for a little GPS tracker that looks like a diamond...


OK, yea, too James Bondish... but it might work for some of these forum members that keep disappearing on us!

well, dh and I have the same dilemma...technically, we are not married yet, but we still say dh and dw here. As far as the rings, he wants me to have a huge ring that people will envy. personally, i don't like all that flash. A simple ring will do just fine. As far as I'm concerned, it's the love that matters and i'd rather spend the money on a house. i know that's never going to happen, but the way i see it, is there are stores (like walmart) that carry rings that are cheaper (the quality isn't as good, but they are still nice) or go to a jeweler and get an alternate stone...some are really inexpensive.

In any case, it is your choice. But make sure that it's something you REALLY want and are willing to have and live with for the rest of your life. I saw where people say there is always laser removal, but removal costs more than getting the tattoo to begin with.
