    Does anyone know if this is true or not?

    I was told that John should get me an eternity ring when our LO is born, because we are not married or engaged :(

    Has anyone else heard of this or is it aload of rubbish?? I might just tell him this anyway so i can get me a nice bit of bling (would prefer an engagement ring though) :lol:

    I always thought that you were given an eternity ring after the birth of your first child if you were married. That's the way we are doing it anyway.

    I think many people have eternity rings now even though they are not married. There are no rules and I say go for it. xx

    I went on line to look at this as my husband will only get one when we have been married for about 20 years however some of my friends had them when they had their first baby - the website I saw stated that it depends on the individual and also who is advertising ie - the jewellers or the diamond company, its all advertising at the end of the day, there is no tradition just personal preference (mine would be now! :lol: ).

    I dropped gentle hints after Jonah was born....like 'you have to get me a ring now I've had your baby'!!

    Typical Robin response was I've got you 2 already, are you never happy? :roll: :roll:

    Tell John you'd like a ring, but you'd settle for a laptop.
