This 28-year-old woman’s fiancé, who is also 28, proposed to her after dating for nearly eight years. After getting engaged, they called their close friends and family members to break the news.

Her fiancé’s paternal grandma was thrilled and offered to give her her wedding band and stone, explaining she wanted to pass it down through the family. She happily agreed to accept the ring.

Later, her fiancé talked to his mom and updated her about the ring. During the conversation, she and her fiancé discovered that over 30 years ago, his paternal grandma tried to give his mother this ring.

However, she only suggested giving his mom the band, not the stone. She and her fiancé hadn’t heard this story before.

“Now knowing that I was gifted the ring (band and stone), she vocalized that it is technically her ring, and she is entitled to it, even though she refused the original offer,” she said.

Plus, her fiancé’s mom has been divorced from his father for more than a decade. Since their engagement, her soon-to-be mother-in-law mentions the ring at every family gathering.

“She declares that it should technically be her ring and makes a big deal out of it. It makes me uncomfortable and makes me not want to wear the ring,” she explained.

Understandably, she’s always apprehensive and scared before get-togethers because she’s worried that her fiancé’s mom will cause tension by talking about the ring like she’s already done so many times.

So far, her fiancé’s grandma isn’t aware of the situation. Luckily, her fiancé has come to her defense whenever his mom mentions the ring.
