The proposal is one event that most ladies fantasize about everyday. Some want it done in the grandest location or the most beautiful restaurant, others want it in a place that holds dear memories for the couple, or even at sea. The focus today however is not on the location, but on the process itself and the ring that is usually used in marking the occasion. We’ve heard stories of those who gave their spouse engagement ring but took ‘forever’ before taking them to the altar, or never did. So we ask, how long should it take between the engagement ring and the wedding?
Olanrewaju ‘Ozone’ Olubukola has helped in gauging vital public opinion about the interesting issues that arise from an engagement ring staying too long on the finger of the bride-to-be as she awaits her groom to take the next step. Please leave your thoughts on this issue in the comments section as we also share opinions we have earlier sampled below:
A year max.
A year is too much. It’s not dating, Engagement ring should be given when marriage is 6 months close.
As long as you can be the actor of “Lord of the Rings” 💍
The ring should come when they both ready to walk down the aisle, financially and in other ways.
No rules as to when the ring should be given. However, a year isn’t too long. Don’t forget the ring comes with an official proposal of marriage. Ladies look out for the ring oh and they are here saying something I don’t understand again.
Eh sir, please give me the engagement ring on the day of the traditional wedding. God bless you
Yet to know the value of the ring sef…. E dey block toasters? Na surety?…. cos I see only ladies wearing it… I am confused maybe!
Engagement ring is not meant to be worn about,after he has proposed,na to keep for purse.hehehehehe. But,honestly it should be less than a year.
First I like to ask what is the essence of an engagement ring if she has to wear it for months or even years? Listen guys, let put this issue into proper perspective. Would you rather marry a ring in your hands for 1 year and no hope insight? Or would you rather not have any ring and he takes you to the altar because he knows your worth.
Let take a look at this scenario. Would you rather pay for a product you know the worth and can afford immediately, rather than pay for a product installments because you hope the price would rise in the nearest future?
If you are willing and ready, it is needless holding down a lady with some kind of ring all in the name of engagement. Be focused, get your priority right, be self sufficient first, have a future plans of growth before pinning down any Lady.
6months max!…..even as a lady, why do we wear engagement ring when we aren’t sure of the alter?……it should be on your fingers, perhaps if he has done introduction with you and there is a hope of getting hooked up soon!.
What is the need of the engagement ring sef. You can be with someone and when you think its time to take it to her parents level.. You just ask her to go see her parents “its time we get married ” . That’s all.
For me o, it should not be more than two months!
Over to you readers. When should a bride start getting worried with her engagement ring without wedding in sight?
