The Ring

My husband and I got married Feb. 2007 but I didn't get my wedding ring until July 2007. I found some pictures of his ex-wife and saw that she had a engagement ring. I moved past that until June 2010 when his eldest son desided to tell us a story about his mother's new boyfriend perposed and bought her an engagement ring for $4750.00.  So I told my husband that I felt his son put my ring down and made me feel bad about my ring because it cost under $4750.00.  I haven't worn my ring since the comment. Am I wrong for not wearing my ring anymore???? I feel like I deserve a better ring. My husband says no new ring and if I don't wear my ring, that's up to me. He doesn't care if I wear a ring or not. What should I do????

when i ask my second love to marry me i gave her a ring that my first wife had ordered before she was killed and my second love loved it <br />
a ring is or should be just a symbol of love and no price attached

First I would never wear anything so cheap for a wedding or engagement ring, the bigger the ring means he wants other men to know you are taken. I have a 5 carat rock in a 2 carat setting, so men know I'm married. <br />
If he wont buy you the ring you want, after knowing how you feel you should sell your cheap ring and buy the one you want.

I don't understand, why do you care that the exs new boyfriend boght her an expensive ring? It really has nothing to do with you. The amount of money spent on a ring seems qutie trivial really, your partner loves you and you made the decision to create a life together by getting married in the first place. <br />
<br />
So who cares if it is a ring worth $5000 or a$2 ring from a toy shop?!

I would not wear the right either, you deserve the best.<br />
Why was it ok for the ex to have an engagement ring on in the photos but not you?!

I understand ur feeling hurt. For the rest of my life I'll always compare my husband's ex to me. It's involunteery. I can't help it. I know how u feel. Like ur hubby loved his ex more than u because he gave her this material thing.<br />
<br />
Let me tell u this: my husband's ex is very materialistic. She only wanted to be married to him for his money. Now that they're divorced she's even worst. She told me that my hubby bought her a ring when they were first married & then after a few yrs he bought her a more expensive one so "everyone could know I was married". That kinna pissed me off at first but I don't want my husband to think he married a 2nd woman who only cares about money. If you want a ring for Christmas or ur birthday that's one thing but u GOT MARRIED with one ring. Even if it cost $50 that's the one that sealed ur union to ur husband & that should mean enough to u that u don't want a replacement with a bigger price tag.<br />
<br />
Did he propose to u? Did u go together to chose out a ring? Think about those things and be happy with what u have. & be happy ur husband's ex is getting married. It might take the pressure off u guys!

this is just silly. i'm sorry. but the purpose of a wedding ring is not the price tag. it's to show to everyone that you love someone and you are devoted to that person. i would wear a piece of tin around my finger just to let everyone know that i am so in love and so devoted to my husband. get off the mountain, kid. don't insult your husband over a pricetag.

Stop being a child. Why does it matter to you that a kid knows less money was wasted on your ring than on his mom's ring? This is a good lesson for your step son from his dad. Don't overspend on ornaments for selfish women.
