Are Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez engaged? That is the question that many have been asking since spotting Gomez with a ring on her wedding finger.
The couple has definitely been serious since they finally stated they were back together in March. They talk about children, although are definitely not having them any time soon, and the Come and Get It singer’s friends are extremely worried about her mental health because of him. However, have they really moved so quickly to the point where Bieber is asking his 21-year-old girlfriend to marry him?
Gomez was spotted with a gold band on her finger while accepting a Kid’s Choice Award for Favorite Singer. She never acknowledged the ring, and has not spoken out about it yet. However, there are many reasons for her to wear such a ring. One of those going around is that they have skipped the engagement and gone straight to marrying. Rumors include that they eloped around the same time that the pregnancy rumors started.
Eloping is something that friends fear, according to a statement “supposed insiders” says Huffington Post. The Disney star has already been through rehab partially because of the Canadian singer, and they fear she is still too vulnerable to him.
While it is possible that Gomez and Bieber are engaged, one idea behind the ring is that it is a promise ring. More and more young people are choosing to wear one as a sign that they promise themselves to each other. It is a step down from engagement, but a good way to physically promise the commitment. It would also be a sign from the 20-year-old Boyfriend singer that he is serious this time about his relationship.
The Baby singer’s reps have spoken out about the ring. According to them, he did give her the ring when they got back together at the start of last month. It is not supposed to be a sign that they are getting married. It was a gift, and she has chosen to wear it on that special finger.
Many women now choose to wear a ring on their wedding finger. For some it is just a fashion statement. For others it is a sign that they are in a serious relationship. Men will see a ring on that finger and realize that the woman they like is unavailable. It is much easier than going through the conversation of whether they stand a chance or not.
Hollywood Life believes that the ring was a symbol from Bieber that their relationship is back on, and he is very serious about it this time. Gomez chose her wedding finger to show that her heart has been taken again by her on-again-off-again boyfriend. There is no need for her friends or some of her fans to worry that she is going to rush too soon.
At the moment, the two seem to want to focus on their careers. They also have a few of the Canadian singer’s legal issues ahead of them. This is probably not the best time for Bieber and Gomez to get engaged.
