I'm not in a relationship and I'm definitely not getting married. But I did mention many times I HATE jewelry. I find it uncomfortable and annoying and I lose things I don't care about very easily.
And I'm kinda against jewelry especially diamond mining.
Engagement rings are marketing scams regardless, see Adam Ruins Everything.
Material things I find hard to care about or bring sentimental value sometimes.
I also don't like rings especially or watches or bracelets because it only goes on one hand, one arm, one finger etc. I can tolerate earrings for the simple fact they go on both ears usually.
But rings? Only on one finger and then my other finger is left cold lol I don't have ocd, but I do prefer to be as "even" and symmetrical as possible.
So my question is, how many men would truly be ok with his fiance not wanting a ring or jewelry? No wedding band either, unless you're planning to get 2, which is pointless as the 1 is unnecessary in my opinion.
Let's use that money instead for a down payment on an apartment or house even. Or, let's donate it to charity. I don't need a flashy bling bling ring, but there are animal shelters, homeless shelters, kids orphanages that can use extra help.
My guy friend said he wouldn't like it as an engagement ring is kinda like marking his territory. Surprisingly many guys feel that she wants to "appear single", I'm like no. Wtf. I've always hated jewelry and I never wear it.
-you don't have to buy her a ridiculously expensive and unnecessary ring (what even happens to them after y'all are no longer fiance And actually married?)
-she doesn't have to worry about losing it.
-she'll still "appear single", I can guarantee you though, guys will hit even on married women. So if you think that a stupid ring will stop a man or woman from getting hit on, you're sadly mistaken.
This is the only ring I'd consider and even then, don't want it.
- No, I wouldn't marry someone like that. She needs to accept my jewelry! I'm marking my territory!47%(8)22%(11)Vote9%(3)

To be completely honest, I've hated the idea of rings and jewellery HAVING to representing love and marriage. But because 99% of the girls I've been with see it as being official, I gave in. Most diamonds come from blood mines dug by children. Yet most women see it as bs. And your right. There are women who are fateful without a ring. And there's married women who bang strangers.1
