Many cultures use different things to let the world know how successful they are in both life and love. For many Americans, the size of a wife’s wedding ring can symbolize a lot, and there are some people who have stopped to wonder…”why?”
It is supposed to be big. “That means that he loves you, a lot.”
It is supposed to be flashy. “That means that he is successful and can afford expensive diamonds.”
It is supposed to be intricate and bold. “That means that he values quality, like the woman wearing it.”
But still we ask the question…”why?” One woman was tired of people saying that her ring didn’t “match” their success as a couple, and she blew their arguments out of the water.
My ring symbolizes a whirlwind, storybook, “make you sick” love story…. It reminds me of how my husband and I met and fell at in love in one night…”
Who is the ring really for, if we follow the logic of the people who told her it was “too small?” Everyone else? That’s ridiculous. The ring is a reminder of the promise made at the altar. It’s a symbol of the love between two people who will strive to build a life together. It isn’t a car or a designer bag or a pair of gorgeous stilettos. A wedding ring is personal, and this woman knows it. Her post is going viral for a reason, and everyone needs to read her beautiful explanation!
