    I think any time spent being disappointed is a waste, on there first anniversary he could get her a ring…

    I agree, Steve. Toni is just too hot to waste time being disappointed over saving money on a ring, or obsessing over the fact that she wanted HIM enough to propose! Brad can’t see the forest for the trees.

    My wife’s engagement and wedding ring are her late grandmother’s. Doesn’t bug me at all.

    I think Brad and Toni should have an honest conversation together with both stating how they would really like to handle this issue about the rings. If Toni really really prefers to wear her grandmother’s ring, then that’s what she should wear. I’m pretty sure it’s the bride’s call in this issue. However, if she’s only choosing the ring to save Brad money, then Brad should buy her a new ring and Toni can opt to wear the heirloom ring on various occasions of her choosing. That would be a good compromise.

    Personally, I think Brad is worrying about this issue far too much. It could simply be a case of nerves on his part due to the sudden decision on both their parts to get engaged. In a month or so, both Brad and Toni will be a little more emotionally settled and can make more important decisions then. They should just enjoy being engaged and in love.

    We collaborated on the design of matching custom made wedding bands and never considered wasting money on jewels.

    When Toni wants Brad’s opinion, she’ll give it to him. . .

    Toni has made it clear that she intends to wear the pants in this marriage. If Brad is not on board with that, he best speak up now or forever hold his peace.

    T.J., stop stirring the pot and let them handle their own affairs.

    On income.
    Both Toni and Brad are professional firefighters. The average income for that profession was $47,720 annually as of May 2011. That is over $95,000 per year combined. That is a great income by any standard for two young adults starting life together. I would not worry about them being able to afford anything. Brad can come up with a ring if he chooses to do so.

    This might get a bit sticky with Brad’s truthful attitude. “Action speaks louder than words”, as the old saying goes.

    @krelboyne

    Since when does asking someone to marry you and using a free ring equal wearing the pants? Brad already proposed and Toni said no, it was her turn to take the rejection risk.



    I hate that expression, it not only implies that women should wear annoying dresses, but that they should be the submissive one in the relationship. Romantic relationships should be an equal partnership. There is a lot more to equality than who gets the ring and gets down on one knee.

    @Leviticus

    You say the couple has had no sex because Greg hasn’t told you so in irrefutable terms. Yet you can come up with this kind of drivel out of the blue.. no record anywhere of TJ shoplifting, no record anywhere that if TJ did, that Brad would not only accept it, but give it to Toni. Musta got a bad batch of smoke there….

    Actually there was an arc where TJ convinced Brad to shoplift some VERY expensive perfume, to try to impress his crush at that time, Diane.

    Guys,

    IT IS NOT ABOUT THE RING!!!!
    Let me say it once again with emphasis.
    IT IS NOT ABOUT THE RING!!!!
    It is about Toni not wanting to lose control, the control she has fought so hard to gain.


    Don’t get me wrong. She does not desire “to wear the pants in the family”. That is not it at all. It’s about this strip from last month:


    (Saturday 3/16/2013)

    This is about her sense of helplessness when her parents died, and she was thrust into a less than ideal situation with her aunt — a situation that she had no control over. And it is about her trusting Dirk and getting royally burned in the process.


    Once burned, twice shy.


    She has fought hard to get her independence and control over her life, but now she is being asked to give some of that up to marry Brad.


    She is scared.
