I’m so sorry. You aren’t overreaction…you have a complete right to be disappointed.

Honestly, do you  think your Darling Husband is going to lose the ring again?  If not, then I think replacing it for Christmas is a great idea. If you think there is a good chance he’ll lose it, then I wouldn’t bother.

So sorry!

But, here’s a suggestion … replace the ring but then tell Darling Husband that you need to do a vow renewal on your 1st anniversary!!!  Do some spectacularly fun thing like a trip to the Bahamas and do vow renewals on a beach!  Then you can have a 2nd honeymoon!

Aw, I’m sorry.

If it’s any consolation, my dad has lost three wedding rings. Three. After the third, my mom said, “That’s it–we’re not buying you any more!” Then, after my grandmother, his mother, died, he inherited HER wedding ring and wears that…so he jokes he’s married to his mother. My mom thinks it’s funny.

They’ve been married almost 40 years, three wedding rings and all.

We got Darling Husband an inexepensive band because we knew he’d lose it. We got him a band from Titanium Knights on Etsy for about $50. It looks nice, it’s light weight, and I haven’t heard any complaints about it not being comfortable. Plus if he loses it we can afford to replace it 8 times a year if we had to πŸ˜‰

This is exactly why my Fiance is getting two rings.  He will have one to to wear our wedding day and an everyday band.  The official ring can go in my jewelry box and he can wear it for special occasions.  If he loses the everyday band, it won’t matter since it’s not the one he wore for the wedding.

I hear about a lot of men losing their wedding bands. My husband takes his off all day at work (he tattoos) and to do certain types of house work that it might get dirty. I wouldn’t doubt one day he’d lose it. Sometimes he forgets it at work. I guess thus far I haven’t been bothered by it. I just joke if he forget it at work that when we are having dinner it looks like he is “the other man”. :). You aren’t overreacting though. Mine has yet to lose his, but I’d be sad if he did. He just can’t get use to wearing anything on his hands since he never has ever in his life, lol not any kind of jewelry ever.

My husband has lost 2. I’m buying him one more, and if he looses it that’s it. He’s responsible for replacing the next five million of them. Combined, the rings have cost about $500.

Did you get them insured? Do you have home owners/rental insurance? You might want to look into that, see if they cover it since technically it was stolen after it was lost πŸ™‚

(I’d get him the same one, btw, not a different one.)

Mine list his ring on our honeymoon too, less than 48 hours after our wedding…I cried too.  But now I’m almost 6 months from our wedding and it’s not a big deal anymore but at the time, I was super-upset, so I know how it feels, I’m sorry!

Try not to feel too bad about it, as PP have said, it happens all the time.  A few years ago I was talking to a honeymooning couple in Hawaii and the husband told me that they had been snorkeling the day before and he had come face-to-face with a Moray Eel and in his haste to swim far, far away (it was kind of chasing him!), he lost his wedding ring. Luckily he had a sense of humor about it.

That said, I bought my Fiance two inexpensive Tungsten wedding rings on eBay (they really have the best selection and best prices compared to Amazon and Overstock) just to cover this possibility πŸ™‚  It’s just important that he have a ring, not necessarily the ring.

Yeah, my hubby lost his too, at a waterpark, after we had talked about him taking it off before we went in…  oh well, just got him a new one.  I was pretty bummed, cause it was a really nice ring, but nothing I can do about it now. πŸ™

My Darling Husband lost his wedding band on our honeymoon as well. Our trip was several months after our wedding but I was still very upset.

First, I tried to put the money part behind us. Yes it was a complete waste of a couple hundred dollars but that really wasn’t why it upset me (and probably not why you are really upset either). We agreed that he would just need to go without until we had put away a few extra dollars from our “fun money” to pay for a new one.

I was very upset because that was the ring that I put on his finger on our wedding day and it was gone. I tried to constantly remind myself that it is just a symbol. It’s not like we got into a fight and he threw it into the ocean. He didn’t take it off to play single at the bar. The situation still sucks but it was an accident.

We finally laugh about the whole thing now (about 5 months after the incident). I told him that because we had to buy another ring that I deserved one too πŸ™‚

I hope that the sad feelings go away quickly.
