I'd like to point out that some of us choose not to live with a boyfriend/girlfriend until we are engaged or even married. I'm still living with a parent in my 20s and I won't move out until engaged because I just prefer it that way. And that's how things used to be.
If it makes you feel better he stole it because he loves you...a lot enough to screw over family members to make you happy
A sign of love would have been if he'd asked his mother for the ring. Instead he showed contempt for his mother by stealing something which she holds dear. He showed contempt for his gf by spending nothing at all on the ring, but making her believe it was a token of his affection - even a $10 ring would have cost him more, so that give some measure of the degree of his love... Also the chance that this wouldn't be found out was extremely low - she only had to meet his mom once, while wearing the engagement ring. So finally he also showed his extremely low intelligence. So OP - what sort of husband do you think this guy would be to you? What sort of father would he be - what would he teach your children?
It was due to his no good pig stealin' great great grandfather that his mom found out..
