I feel like this topic is coming up everywhere. What's going on?
My boyfriend told me recently that he was going to get me a promise ring with the promise to never hurt me.
Now that's a pretty big statement, because its hard to control another's feelings.
I thought I knew what a promise ring was, but now I'm starting to get confused. What are they?
A promise to marry someone?
A promise to stay abstienent and wait for marriage?
A promise to stay loyal to your partner?
If it's for marriage, why not just buy the engagement ring? I mean, people get engaged and don't marry for years. That's a promise isn't it?
If it's a ring to promise to stay pure and not to have sex, isn't that what a purity ring is?
Staying loyal would be the only one to make sense, but I dont really know why anyone would need to buy a ring for that. Isn't that what a reationship is for? Being loyal to that person?
I think it was just created for more sales to be honest. I don't know, maybe I'm being cynical.
What do you think it's for?
