Just got in a debate with a friend on promise rings. She just recently got one from her boyfriend, who actually spent decent money on it, and she thinks that they're a good idea. I think they're stupid. Why be in a relationship if you aren't going to try and make it work with that person? If you and your significant other get in a bad fight, is that ring really going to make you two stay together? Plus, why not save the money for an engagement ring in the future if you are THAT serious about a promise ring? I know of a few people who had them in HS, and I just figured it was a phase, but actual college couples are doing it, too? C'mon man. What do you think? Are they a cool idea, or stupid idea?
