Is it necessary to give or receive a ring when proposing or proposed to?

I think the ring part heightens the romantic feeling.in my opinion,it is not really necessary to give a ring.engagement is all about the preparation for the marriage.it is much better to prepare yourself for marriage.before getting married,there should be a steady source of income,an extra money source,a house,and some properties just in case of emergency.

True enough. But I guess someone who doesn't have your listed 'preparations' should not go into marriage in the first place. Anyhow, I have read somewhere that centuries ago the engagement ring was very important. It's actually priced with about 3 month's worth of wages. The reason being that when the family goes broke, they could sell the engagement ring so that the family would start-over. Just like how the partnership or the marriage of the man and the woman starts from the engagement ring. Somewhat amazing in thought, right? hehehe.. Have a great MyLot experience ahead!

I'm planning a proposal for my girlfriend and I think the ring justifies this event. It doesn't matter if your ring is beautiful or not but when you are giving a ring in a proposal be sure that it would fit your partner's finger and make sure that it's beautiful and would make it an unforgettable experience

This response is just great! I am so sorry to have not been going back to my topic sooner! I would have asked how it did (you proposing) and how are you now? I hope it was a memorable moment for both of you. I'm pretty sure the feeling of being proposed to is just great and the ring just reminds both of the event itself. I sure would like to receive one soon, well the most important thing to me right now is that he loves me and he sees me as his mate forever. I think I would just melt to the sight of him or hearing him say those words. Whew!! So how are you? Have a great MyLot experience ahead!
