See that hand? No wedding band!The Telegraph reports that a British woman has spent five years and roughly $160,000 to win back the wedding band she purchased when she married her husband (who is now her ex-husband) 40 years ago. Yes, she’s spent tens of thousands more in legal costs than the ring is worth.
But it’s the principle of the matter, you know.
As I read the story, I had many thoughts. First thought: I would never do that. Neeevah.
Second thought: If we split up, he can keep his ring. Heck, he can even have mine.
Third thought: Does he even know where his ring is?
You see, my husband hardly ever wears his wedding band. Years ago, this used to bother me. Yes, it bothered me a lot. I read all sorts of things into it: Does he not value our marriage? Doesn’t he care what other people think? Why can’t he do this one thing for me? Is it really that hard to wear a ring!?! It’s not like I’m asking him to wear an ugly holiday sweater!
