The comment comes after some Twitter users question why she was given a promise ring. One user wrote, “If you get engaged you’re a fiance’. What are you when you get a promise ring?” Another user quickly responded, “A great big bundle of potentiality.”
In the simplest of terms, a promise ring is a step up from dating. It shows the world that your heart belongs to another, and that you’re devoted to protecting and nurturing that relationship.
