Remember when I met the man with no wedding ring for lunch?
This weekend I bought that poor man a NEW wedding ring.
Yes, more than 27 years after Tom and I exchanged vows and I slipped this ring on his finger…
… I bought him this very lightweight, totally scratch resistant, very manly Titanium wedding ring.
Tom’s always liked the original wedding ring. In fact, according to him, he likes it so much that he’s afraid he’ll scratch it (riiiiight…), so historically he only wore it on “special occasions” like weddings and job interviews. (Riiiiight. Job interviews? Yeah, that was my reaction too!)
Ultimately, the original ring was just too angular and was never comfortable on his finger and after a few hours or days he just ended up removing it.
This went on for… oh, about 27 years or so.
Some times it’s bothered me more than other times, but I’m married to a phenomenally good-looking man and, although I’m not the jealous type, I know there are women who scope out men’s left hands and I don’t want anyone thinking that this gorgeous guy is anywhere close to available! :-)
We talked about this issue as one of our “areas of conflict” at the couples workshop that we attended in February and we decided then that we’d find Tom a comfortable ring that he wouldn’t be tempted to take off. But life got busy and we just never followed through.
Then this weekend, when I attended the workshop again as a TGRI employee I realized that I really should look for a ring for Tom, so on the way home I found this one…
And the best part, he actually likes it!
I don’t want to jinx things here, but I think this ring just might live a real life away from that dang jewelry box and on my husband’s finger.
We should celebrate with a lunch date, don’tcha think?
