    I am pretty sure it was something way back in older times that we just kind of stuck with in modern days now. however now a days i've been seeing women gift men with something else like an engagement watch or i've seen some women here opt not to have a separate wedding ring.

    Just because something is tradition, doesn't mean that you have to follow it. If your FH wants to wear an engagement ring, go for it.

    I think it's more of a modern thing, actually, to sell more jewelry. Engagement rings also used to be used as the wedding ring for many women.

    Also, you do you. Tradition is just a guideline, IMO.

    A couple weeks after we got engaged, my FH jokingly complained about not getting an engagement ring too. So I went out and got him a really nice tungsten carbide ring with a little diamond, as an "engagement ring" of his own. Smiley smile It will also be his wedding band.

    He got me a pretty little engagement ring, and I decided I wanted a particular type of band with it, so I went out and found/bought it. Already wearing it because I adore the set together and we consider ourselves married in all but name anyway.

    I got my fiance an engagement ring that he plans on wearing on a chain as a necklace after the wedding. I would imagine it's like what Katherine said and is just a ploy to sell more jewelry.

    My FH wears his wedding band already and I am using my engagement ring as a wedding band. We are just going to take them off and use them for the ceremony.

    The only "tradition" is for both of you to wear no rings or just a band. As time has gone by, people have chosen to wear rings differently. It is all personal preference. You don't have to wear anything more than 1 ring and your FH can wear more than one or you can both wear none. It is completely up to you.

    Tradition I guess. Men want to get their special girl that special ring that the lady wants to go show off. I technically will have three. My FH when we first started dating on our 1 year anniversary he got me a promise ring. Everyone is different. Even women propose to their bfs. Times change. Do whatever makes both of you happy. That’s what’s important 😊
