Who Needs an Engagement Ring When You Can Propose With a Leaf or Puppy Instead?

March 8, 2019

The New York Times reports that couples are committing to each other through matching tattoos and puppies. “While a ring is meant to be a symbol of love, other things can absolutely take its place, especially if jewelry isn’t important to the couple, or if a diamond is a stretch financially," says Lauren Kay, the deputy editor of The Knot. A man named Jason Tinkey proposed to his now-wife with a leaf he found on the floor of a hut that he molded it into the shape of a ring on a beach in Grenada. Would you be okay being proposed to with one of these alternatives?
