How committed to your marriage are you? 100%, right? I came across an idea the other day that put a new perspective on it.
My husband never had a wedding ring because he knew of people who lost their finger when the ring got caught in machinery. I was a little disappointed about it at first as I always thought of a wedding ring as a symbol of eternal love. It quickly became a non-issue as I had no doubts about our love.
We were at our son’s house the other day when a man came to service their air conditioning. He wore no wedding ring for safety reasons he said. But he had a solution to the problem: a tattoo of a wedding ring. Now that’s committment!
It brings some questions to mind. Is it just his symbol of eternal love for her? Or does his wife not trust him? Does he need to do this so women won’t hit on him? I know the vows are till death us do part, but what if, God forbid, she dies? Would he wear makeup over it? Would he get a tattoo of a slash mark over it to show he’s NOT married? Would he get the “ring” removed while he’s single & then have it put back on if he gets married again? It gets complicated.
Then there is the issue of why does he have to prove he is married to her/loves her? Is it like a loyalty oath? They say the recession keeps people from getting divorced because it’s cheaper to stay married. It’s also easier than dealing with tattoos of rings. Could this be a trend? What do you think? Have you seen this also? Maybe I’m just out of the loop.
