What Is a Promise Ring?
Some may think that they are superfluous or unnecessary. They ask themselves questions like ‘why create a step between dating and betrothal if you’re going to get engaged anyway?’ Why not go straight to an engagement ring? But promise rings are important. They show devotion or commitment between couples. They can be thought of as a sign or display of love, similar to boys giving their class rings to their girlfriends back in high school. It shows you’re dating, and it’s a good way to express your passion when words fall short.
Investing in a promise ring means a lot more than updating your relationship status on Facebook. A promise ring shows you’re promising yourselves to each other. It is a visible symbol of a romantic connection. It could hold the pledge that you will make better choices for each other, always be faithful to each other or make sacrifices for the good of the relationship.
A lot of people use promise rings to indicate future engagement. Others who exchange promise rings may have no intention of ever getting married. They consider the concept of marriage as archaic or that they are not interested in being committed, not now, not soon. They just want a symbol of their current relationship’s significance which is actually not a bad idea. When it comes to love and dating, we all have our own views and some people simply take their relationship for what it is – nothing more, nothing less.
