When they first got back together last year, Ben would talk about wanting to have a baby with Jen all the time, so it’s been tough for her to accept that he’s not as into the idea these days. It’s been causing a lot of tension, because she won’t let it go. Jen’s not giving up – she’s very determined.”

My boyfriend proposed to me on Saturday. I knew the proposal was coming and was looking sooooo forward to it. My guy got down on one knee and presented me with a box. He opened it and stunned me when he presented me with a family heirloom. I was expecting a giant diamond ring and instead ended up with two pearls on a thin brass band. I accepted his proposal because I didn't know what else to do. My friends say I should call off the wedding because he is using the heirloom to save money. My other friends say it was a sweet gesture and has sentimental value. I'm not sure what to do. Was he being cheap or romantic? Should I call off the engagement? Should I demand a new ring?
