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.
On that note-if I lost the rings-that wouldn't send me into a tailspin.
I just can't stand being told what to do about something as trivial as what I choose to wear.. or not wear.
Interestingly enough as I don't wear my rings at home and I don't wear them to work out-it tends to be only once every week or two for a few hours (out for dinner or out on a date or something) that I wear mine. But I keep them in a special place.
Maca on the other hand-he's VERY anal about his ring. It's on his hand ALL the time and it means a LOT to him.
