- Wedding: May 2013
I see alot of people I feel that are showing their rings.
My engagement ring (at the time) was like probably 30 bucks, barely a diamond, barely a band…. but i didn’t (and still dont) give a rats ass.
its what he could afford at the time.
I wore the band till it broke, yes, literally… broke, it was thin, and the inside of it broke, so I couldn’t wear it anymore because it kept pinching me. it was a rope pattern (will post soon) and the ‘diamond” was the size of a speck of sand…
I have since lost 3 wedding rings, hubbie has lost 1… almost 2. the 2nd one was almost lost in a mosh pit a few months ago (yes we are 41, but whatever)… anyhow we found it.
My wedding band now I have had for about 4 years, we got in mexico on my birthday cruise for like 35 bucks. LOVE IT! my favorite thing! unique and me.
When we first got engaged 19 years ago, people were making fun of my husband and everything, it was quite sad, I loved the ring he got me, i still have it. and it is one of my most prized pocessions, i still break it out every now and then and sometimes think I will have it soldered back together LOL… but i love it, its tiny and its what we could afford at the time and I am thankful to have a man who loves me…
Am I the ONLY one who feels this way? I sometimes feel like I am, when i see hte photos of all the “big rings” and this carat and that carat… i dont give a crap! i have been married about 18 years now and we are planning our 20th anniversary VR. I am just wondering…
If your Fiance gave you a ring that was substandard and people would make fun of, would you still be proud to show it off? I know someone who’s Fiance gave her a less than 1 carat an she was embarrassed… I think this is sad.
The ring is NOT the relationship. do people care more about the ring and the wedding than they do about the marriage?
so sad indeed…
