no but I'm not big on tradition. Just because I proposed doesn't mean I buy the ring, or the house.
 
would you be ok if he said yes and didn't present you with a ring?  or is the expectation (because it has been explicitly stated as such) that after he has said yes he should go out and purchase an engagement ring for you?


I would tell him the bolded.

I mean really


I only phrased it that way because my people are white and so most of the engaged/married folk I know are white and none of them did it. I've only seen it with my black friends who have black fiancees/husbands.

This was really one of those times where no shade was intended...just strictly personal experience...not a generalization at all.

All of your family is white?

Any ring I desire would be well in my suitors yearly income + bonus bracket.

but more than likely he'd be like Leonard on BBTheory  and produce a nice ring he'd been toting around in his wallet for years.

Yup. Well aside from a couple of my brother-in-laws and my half-asian nephew. My adoptive fam is white. My bio fam is black.

pretty much.  and of course the expectation would be that it would need to be paid for by him prior to the nuptials...
