No you are not over reacting, Trade rings? when they are both family rings that is crazy! my Diamond is my FI’s Grandmothers diamond in a new setting. and i freak out that i would lose the diamond and not be able to really “replace it” that is so crazy!! sounds like she loves the idea of a ring/wedding/husband but doesn’t really know what shes getting herself into with a marriage… time to grow up a bit!


EDIT i would also be worried that she would some how steal my rings… keep them close to you!

That is a very weird request.  I would most definitely tell her sorry bu no, these rings mean a lot to you and you can’t imagine giving them up.

How weird is this girl?  That’s so bizarre.  The answer is most definitely no.

That is one of the stupidest requests I have ever heard.  

I think the stupidest was on another board I frequent where someone’s sister in law thought they should trade houses because she had more kids, and the poster had a bigger house.  And, no, it wasn’t a situation where they had a family compound with a bunch of homes that the whole family owned.  The poster and her husband had bought their own house, and were paying the mortgage on it.

Wow! I would tell her no, these rings have a lot more sentimental value than that and no amount of money would change that. Also remind her that her grandmother probably wouldn’t appreciate her selling/trading family heirlooms just because she prefers another set. If she doesn’t want them she should give them back to her grandmother and she should NOT be trying to get another married woman’s rings.

Uh, that is ridiculous. I hope she starts acting like she was joking.

What’s that?  You want to trade rings with me?  The symbol of my love and commitment to my husband reduced to the treatment of baseball cards and pogs??  Yeah sure, that’s a capital idea!  I’ll tell you what.  You can TAKE IT OFF MY ROTTING CORPSE.

crazy people…what the hell?

I would tell her no.  Honestly, it would really make me think less of her.  That is probably bad to say, but the fact that she would treat her heirloom (and mine) with such disregard would make me think way less of her character and maturity.

@Nona99:  +1 Hahahahaha! This. 

Being young is no excuse. That’s just plain immature, spoiled and ignorant. I can only hope she wasn’t serious! Like a really poor joke…
