Nah -- never intended to marry him. One night he insisted on me saying I'd marry him before he'd take me home (say it, not DO it). I finally got extremely tired of the situation and said "yes" but told him not to count on it. He decided to go into debt to buy me a 3/4 carat blue white diamond knowing full well I really don't like diamonds.

By the way, I was 17 and a senior in high school.

I didn't want to marry him, but at the time I didn't want to break up with him -- but the "engagement" exagerated the tedium (of dating him), so -- surprise surprise -- we broke up permanently a few months later in what was a very tempestuous "engagement".

By the way, when I told my parents Robert had given me a ring, they threw me against the kitchen wall and wouldn't even LISTEN to my statement that I had no intention of marrying him.

Ach! I was young and stupid.

But not so stupid that I'd actually set up housekeeping with him -- even if he did drive a Bonneville convertible.
