Omg ewwww! That is my biggest nightmare, esp. now that my ring is really loose. Too Much Information, but I actually switch it to my right hand every time I use the bathroom just in case.

I’m go me have to call bullshit! No Fing way a woman would leave her ring where she could get to it over a $75 toilet!

I LOVE that he proposed to her again with it!

It DOES seem odd, though, that they would just give up.  I mean, even if you couldn’t afford to replace it at the time, at some point during the time they lived there I am sure they could have, OR could have borrowed a couple hundred bucks from someone to replace it.

“Terry didn’t tell Donna right away. Instead, he called her into the room as if he had important news and proposed to her again — with the same ring.  Donna said, “We cried and we laughed. We giggled and danced. It was great.””

Too Cute.

It’s hard to believe that they chose to leave the ring there, though, risking losing it forever rather than getting a new toilet so they could retrieve it. I understand that they were financially strapped, but you can find toilets for really low prices! A quick search on Canadian Tire’s website (I’m in Canada) showed that they currently sell a brand new toilet for $36 – and I’ve seen toilets for free at Habitat for Humanity. Maybe toilets were a lot more expensive in the 70s, but there must’ve been used options, no? Or since the ring was visible through the “little hole”, they could’ve purchased a new toilet before they moved and added it to the listing price of their home (not much of an influence in the overall price of a home) – SOMETHING! haha

How fortuitous that the husband happened to be in the neighbourhood when the new home owners were taking the old toilet to the curb!
