The symbolism of matching rings
I think of matching rings as a sign of commitment. I'm trying to figure out why my friend keeps telling me that my boyfriend buying us rings is us basically getting engaged. I mean yes there is symbolism behind it, but does it really signify marriage? Its not a promise ring. It supposed to represent our love and our future together but what I want to know is how guys view this, if you really loved a girl and wanted to marry her next year would this be basically getting engaged or is it really the thought that counts or am I just lost?

I actually got a really nice ring for my girlfriend pretty soon after we got together because we felt so strongly for each other. Plus we got together at a bad time and were going to have to be separated for a long while. It really is the thought that counts. If you feel strong and sure enough of a person to give them a ring then maybe marriage is down the road... but you don't necessarily need a ring to symbolize that. A circular band that goes on forever is just a very endearing thing for two lovers to hold on to and what that means changes with every pair of soulmates.
