Women are giving guys 'man-gagement' rings a move that holds major significance

Ed Sheeran has been wearing a ring on THAT finger, but it’s not what you think it is. It’s simply a “man-gagement” ring.

People noticed the wedding band-style accessory about two weeks ago, and he has since addressed it. “I never saw why men didn’t wear engagement rings,” Sheeran, 27, told British talk show Lorraine. “Cherry made it for me herself out of silver clay,” he said of his new ring, which was handcrafted by his fiancée, Cherry Seaborn. “I really like it.”

Nothing’s changed since he proposed: “We didn’t get secretly married, no,” he clarified on Australia’s The Kyle and Jackie O Show this week. “So we were both kinda wearing rings.”

Why “man-gagement”? That’s stupid. It’s still an engagement ring.

Does the ring go in the guys’ nose?

Colleges admitting more women than men. Businesses refusing to hire males and preferring females. Women now have a lot of money. The castration of males is rapidly reaching a critical mass.

Any woman who would buy into this crap wouldn’t be worth marrying.

It’s nice when your future ex-wife gives you a present. Most beta males really like that.

LOL — Wait til he tries to give Cherry an engagement ring that he “handicrafts” out of silver clay.

I wear one. I had a problem with so many hot looking young chicks hitting on me. Sometimes it gets annoying. When I wear my mangagement ring the girls know that I am not on the market right now.

Yup, gives the guy a cheesy ring, and her alpha her entire body.

That sometimes makes it worse if they just want a 1NS.

Better a nose ring than a “Prince Albert”...

That’s weird. Just don’t get the woman having a hyphenated name thing either.....The man taking the woman’s last name, now that’s REALLY out there.

“Any woman who would buy into this crap wouldn’t be worth marrying.”

Couldn't agree more. It's not the ring, or who is giving it, it's the fact that this is meant to be yet another feminist anti-male act. I would rather be single than deal with that. I refuse to be a prop in some stupid female power play. Life is too precious and short.
