From a female blog reader:
He proposed to me with no engagement ring and we are going to see my parents this weekend. I had a very big dream about engagement but my boyfriend only popped the question verbally with no ring to show for it. When he said will you marry me, and I said yes, I expected the normal drama of him putting his hands inside his pocket and bringing out the ring but rather he just kissed me and hugged me. Every time he put his hands in his pocket I just feel he is bringing out the ring. I had to ask him when we got home but he said he does not believe in all that drama and also he did not buy a ring because he does not intend to wed me in court or church, we are just doing traditional marriage . We augured about it but he stood his ground. Am really not comfortable about it. Please is it ok to call of the engagement cause am not happy with the arrangement .
