My Husband Never Bought Me a Wedding Ring – What To Do

By Kim •  Updated: 11/12/21 •  3 min read

Many couples do not buy a wedding ring together. This can be because one or both of them is not sure how much to spend on a ring, they have not had time to shop around, or they have just not decided yet. Many women have found themselves in the same situation as their husband is unable to buy her a ring. In this article, we will look at what can be done to help your husband to buy you a ring and we will provide some ideas on how to show him that you want him to buy you a ring.

How To Help Your Husband To Buy You A Ring?

One of the best ways to help your husband is to give him hints that you want him to buy you a ring. There are many ways to do this and they are all subtle. Some of the hints that you can use include:

  1. Offering to pay for the ring if he cannot afford it.
  2. If he has not yet bought you a ring, ask him when he will be able to get one for you.
  3. Offer to help him with the money if he cannot afford it himself.

Why did your husband never buy you a wedding ring?

In this case, you need better communication between you and your husband. You need to talk about the reasons why he has not bought you a ring. The things that you might want to talk about include:

  1. Was he able to find a ring that you liked?
  2. How much did the ring cost?
  3. Did he really like the ring or was it something that he could afford?
  4. Did he have enough money saved up to buy a ring or was there something else that stopped him from buying one? (Maybe his mother was trying to get him to buy her one instead?)
  5. Was it possible for him to afford a diamond ring but did not want one? Did you ask him about this before you got married? If so, what did he say about it? What would be your reaction if he had told you that he wanted a different type of wedding ring than the one that you wanted but could not afford? (This is a very important question because your reaction may make or break your marriage.)

If you do not have any idea why your husband has never bought you a wedding ring, then you need to ask him. He may be able to tell you what is going on in his life and why he has not been able to buy you a ring. He may also be able to tell you why he has not been able to afford a ring that you want. If he is having financial problems, then this could be the time for him to tell you about it. Therefore, you need to understand the situation before you ask him about it.
