These days a new wedding trend is emerging. Men are starting to wear man-gagement rings, sending the message that they’re off the market. Even popular singer Michael Bublé wore one when he became engaged back in November 2009. But, why is this a thing?
There are a few factors in the changing wedding landscape and emergence of man-gagement rings. First off, gender roles are as balanced as ever promoting a more even engagement experience for men and women. Some women even opt to propose to their partners when they’re ready to settle down. Also, same-sex marriage has increased recently, leading to more male-male marriages which challenge the traditions of marriage in the United States.
So that begs to question, would you wear a man-gagement ring?
