My Dirty Secret
We have been engaged since Feb 2010. We have 2 beautiful children together. We share a wonderful home and have been very happy for years. I see us as already married ...just we are making it official.
Yesterday, a relative asked me if she could see "The Ring". I don't have one! He wanted to give me his grandmothers ring, but his family has had trouble locating the ring...don't ask. I am ring less! Part of me feels I don't need one. (We have kids to take care of. It is just an object.) Another part of me feels completely naked and embarrassed. ( It's a symbol of his love. Social expectation.)
We have decided to look for another ring instead of waiting on his parents to remember where they put it. I feel so horrible about sending him links to rings I would like. I told him I would leave it up to him. His response for my relative was send her a picture of the kids. This is so unromantic!
