NEED OPINIONS!! Couples promise ring... Now is it weird if he wears one? Do you think it's a good or bad idea?

I am 19 and my boyfriend is also 19. We have been together steady for about 6 years. I am leaving for navy bootcamp in about 40 days... We started to discuss engagement.. I wanted to get engaged before hand.. But he did not... He wants to wait to see how are relationship changes with the distance and we decided on doing promise rings for one another.... And to write to each other what they stand for..

Promise rings are a waste of money..I wouldn't wear one. His idea of waiting is good...go with that.

It isn't weird for him to wear a promise ring. The ring is a symbol of commitment, so whether it's good or bad depends on your attitude, not ours :)

Honestly....he doesn't sound ready for a commitment and it has to be freely given or it is meaningless. Sorry. You are both very young, and it's true things can change. He sounds like a smart guy and I can see what you see in him. Thanks for serving our country.

A promise ring is a way for society to peer pressure someone to do something. This maybe a bad or good thing but that is a matter of opinion not a matter of fact. I know plenty of people who wear rings but cheat anyway. I also know people who don't wear rings and are faithful. It is all in your head and not his physical object. Also certain jobs in the military are dangerous to be wearing jewelry. People have gotten their heads pulled into machines for wearing a necklace or their fingers ripped off for wearing rings. If these little trinkets are so important to you, I would say that you are already starting in a bad financial path that will lead to discord in the future. Just experience talking.
