Girlfriend has repeatedly stated she wants to get married and even made me try on a wedding band the other night I have resisted because I wanted to be in a career and financially stable before I asked her. I have been with her for 3-4 years(ever since I quit drugs and drinking) and am definite in spending the rest of my life with her. I will have finally have finally paid off the 25g in debts, fines, and court costs at the end of the year and have decided to enter a full time 1 1/2 year welding class (I have never welded but it pays better than being a baker and I won't have to work nights and I think I will enjoy it) and work part time during. So career and financial bliss are a ways off and she is sick of waiting so might as well ask her now . Now we have discussed marriage, rings, weddings already so she knows and accepts my views on them. Rings- can't stand the idea of spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on ugly, useless, finger ornaments. She wants some type of ring though so I am looking at a rosewood with silver band for her. But for me when I tried on the ring the other night I absolutely hated it and told her I couldn't wear a ring because it would deter hot young women from coming on to me ( for some reason she puts up with my sense of humor) but I would be willing to tattoo a band on my finger and/ or commemerate the marriage on my body in ink forever. I'm thinking an owners label like you see in books. This caucasian male is the property of Belinda Lee and if found please return to owner at so and so adress. Done in block print with her name in stylized cursive. What do you think? Any other ideas, refinements, tattoo designs, ect. Cheap and humorous is the way to go in my opinion Also I only have about week before she leaves town to spend Christmas with her family so I was going to take her on short wheeling trip up nearby mountain and get on knee at top, give ring, and show tatt.
