(We were visiting his family in Denmark for the holidays.)

While he went over to ask her to scoot so we could have some privacy, I was desperately trying to figure out how I was going to say no and not hurt his feelings. Then when he came back, he proposed marriage, so at that point I didn't really care what kind of ring he'd given me. He later claimed he was so nervous that he was trying to work his way "up" to the actual marriage proposal and it came out all wrong the first time. I guess I have his mother to thank. Love you, mom!
Lol, "wanna live together". It's good things worked out though.

#4 - One made out of a twist tie.

No need for insurance either and is easily size adjustable without a jeweler getting $ involved.

I would choose no ring at all. I'd rather have a nice honeymoon trip to remember than a ring for which I paid two or three times the true value.

#1, 2, or 3 please!

if your answer is 'neither' or any option other than the 3 above, you are either not paying attention to the question or have no valuable information for me. just move on!
