OK thanks guys, I will certainly think about all this but the truth is this girl is something out of this world beleive me and I have dated many beautiful girls over my 40 odd years. I know I would be saying the same thing as you guys but this girls is everything I dreamed of and more. :biggrin_01: I would marry her without a question. It all comes down to if I might blow it and she is not ready if I propose but she has indicated she is as keen as me. I dont want to blow it, propose and she says she is not sure or needs more time :) as you only get one chance I guess....

I don't think it's a one shot deal. Some of the happiest couples I know the man had to propose at least 5 times. I don't know whether the women were testing them or just finally married them because there must be something to a guy who is that persistant. Both couples have been together more than ten years.

I don't think engagement rings are a big deal to most Filipinas, i know my wife wasn't enthusiastic about having one, their far more interested in the real commitment, wedding ring.

I hope you are right for your sake. I still don't see why the rush, you are still together regardless, just without that piece of paper. If she really loved you she would not mind a wait, and like you said, what if she isn't quite ready for the question?

Even though I'm engaged now we're still not getting married until April 2013, when my entire family will fly over for 10 days. Can't wait to see my dads luminous white legs.

haha, yeah I'm sure you will look forward to that with your family.

Actually that is what I mean, just getting engaged not married yet. So to get married in the Philippines you must have lived together for at least 6 months anyway?

As for engagement rings, how can I know when we are shopping for a pair for us both that we are not getting sold a bad deal? We might be going to Manila soon so if anyone knows of some shops there to go then please let me know.

I don't think so...there isn't any rule that I know of like that.

You can't know that 100%. Just stick with reputable jewelers that have been in business in the same location for a long time, and ask for recommendations. Beyond that, you just have to let your instincts be your guide.

I agree. My wife does have an engagement ring, but she got it as a 3rd anniversary present.

my g/f wont allow me to buy her an engagement ring for the following reasons, `
1, afraid of losing it
2, scared of it being stolen
3, worried about "family pressure" to pawn it whenever they need money
hopefully things will change when Im there permanently, later this year, and she
will feel more secure about having a few nicer things, but for now she wont let
me buy her anything expensive !
