I give you this:
I don't wear a ring. Steve and I don't even HAVE rings.
It freaks some people out.
Our marriage is a piece of paper. It's a legal thing, a social contract that says we are each other's closest relative by choice.
Our relationship is neither a piece of jewelry nor a piece of paper.
It boggles my mind the way a lot of women think that their ring IS their marriage, and when they lose their ring, it's like the end of the world as we know it.
I think there is far too much emphasis placed on rings and weddings, very much like sex can focus too much on orgasms.
That's enough from me for now.
I hope you folks can work it out.
