My ex and I were high school sweethearts, and we share two children together. We were together for 21 years and engaged for many years. We are now friends, and I am friends with his girlfriend, there are no hard feelings. Here’s where I need to help to process something. He proposed last weekend to his girlfriend…with the same ring I wore for years before I ended the engagement due to his drinking problem and lack of being a responsible adult for myself and our kids. There are no romantic feelings, and I’m not jealous, but I feel like the ring represents the good times and the love that we once had. We had discussed making it into a necklace for me or giving it to our boys; now it will likely be given to his new fiancées daughter. Am I wrong for feeling a little sad about this? Am I holding too much sentimental value to a possession? Is it tacky that she knows that was my ring and flaunts it?
Well it’s his to do what he wants, so…
Very tacky in my opinion.
I’d be sad and hurt over that too! That’s special. And I also definitely would not wear a ring that once belonged to his ex
I find it odd that he would give his new girl his ex’s ring. I personally would not wear a ring my husband had given to someone else.
If I was the new girlfriend and he gave me his ex’s ring I would have said no. Lol was married & divorced and I have both of our wedding bands and my engagement ring.
If I were the gf I’d be more pissed that he “reused” a ring. Isn’t that like baduck or something?
Sorry you feel this way. However, holding onto the hurt and resentment will not do you any good. Although I would probably no doubt feel the same way if it had happened to me.
I would laugh. Honestly.
Move on material things don’t mean anything
Does she know it was yours?
Tacky.be glad you are rid of him
She should be upset too
You shouldn’t feel any type of way but she should… No way in hell I’d except a ring that was someone else’s
I can’t believe she would accept a used ring. Wrong on so many levels.
It would feel icky to me as well. And i would think it would be icky for his new fiancee
Girl your not wrong but let go and let god and yes tacky asf
That’s bad luck. They probably won’t make it to the aisle.
I don’t see how she would want it. It’s weird and I wouldn’t accept it.
If it meant anything to you I would have kept it. I would probably not like it either but honestly since you gave it back it’s his to do what he pleases and now it’s too late.
