Men Embrace Man-Gagement Rings

Love is in the air for many couples and in between the sheets as 20% of men surveyed on MensHealth.com and 18% of brides surveyed on TheKnot.com said their sex lives have increased since becoming engaged.

Surprisingly, however, almost half of brides (48%) and 43% of men said they did not celebrate with sex on the night of their engagement.

The fifth-annual Proposal and Engagement Survey From the two websites has revealed what men and women are thinking and doing during one of life's most personal moments.

Men Want to Sport Some Bling Too

Ladies, don't be surprised if your man asks for a ring: 17% of men surveyed said women shouldn't be the only ones to wear a ring before marriage and that they'd rock a "man-gagement" ring. What woman wouldn't want other ladies to know her man was off the market?

Guys, take note. Quality of the ring is important, but don't forget about the size of the bling! When asked how much carat size really matters, more than half (59%) of brides said both size and quality matter to them. When asked if they thought carat size matters to her, a whopping 76% of the men surveyed said, "No, she doesn't care that much--quality over quantity!" Think again, guys.

Brides Care What Friends and Family Think of Their Ring

Nearly one in four (22%) brides surveyed admitted that it matters what their friends and family think about the ring. Maybe the 44% of guys who chose the ring themselves should've enlisted some extra help from her side.

Not All Brides Love Their Ring

When asked if they thought their fiancee loved the ring, nearly all (98%) men said "yes," yet 9% of brides actually didn't love the ring. While 4% let their fiance know how they felt, the other 5% didn't have the heart to tell their fiances!

Tradition Reigns for Men

A massive 76% of men said it is essential to propose on bended knee, while only 48% of women agreed. Yet when it came to asking both Mum and Dad for their daughter's hand in marriage, men and women were pretty much on the same page, with 21% and 28%, respectively, saying it's a do.

Brides Love to Post Their Rock on Facebook

Who's more excited to show off the ring? Brides, with 57% saying "yes" to sharing their happy news on Facebook by posting a picture of their ring. Yet when asked what they thought, 22% of men said it's tacky for their fiancee to post a pic of the ring. Surprisingly, 12% of brides admitted that they posted a pic of the ring or changed their relationship status to "engaged" on Facebook before emailing and texting friends.
