A Husband Upgrades His Wife's $20 Wedding Ring After 14 Years

Would you wear an inexpensive ring until your husband is able to afford a new one?

Human Interest

Since the beginning of time, engaged and married couples have solidified their relationships with the purchase of the perfect diamond jewelry for their union. And fun fact: although the origin of engagement/wedding rings isn't 100 percent known, it does date back to Rome, when the women would wear the small rings attached to their keys to show 'ownership' to their men. Fast-forward to today, and not much has changed as rings have become a way to signify how happy we *think* a relationship can be, without even having to say a word.

We've heard, and seen, it time and time again:

"Let me see the ring!"

"Girl, I love your ring!"

*whispers* "Ooo, girl, did you see her ring?"

And for whatever reason, we have allowed this factor to be the basis of society's standards of love. After all, the bigger the better, right?

Does The Size Of The Ring Matter?

Well, one man recently put us all to the test when he posted on his Facebook Story the recent upgrade of his wife of 14-year wedding ring.

He said:

"My wife been thuggin it with the Macy's ring for $20"

Facebook

He then followed it up with:

"She deserve it all. She finally has a ring."

Facebook

Soon after, another friend posted the same screenshot on his personal Facebook page, causing shit to go haywire. People began to have the discussion: is the husband wrong? Could we wait for an upgraded ring? Was she right to stick around?

Needless to say, people had a LOT of opinions about it:

One lady shared her story:

Another wasn't with his timeline:

Sis got straight to the point with what she thought:

Another wasn't a fan of the timeline:

And of course the guys weighed in on his wife's loyalty:

The post has currently racked up over 65K shares, and a mass amount of comments. As far as the couple, they are enjoying their newly purchased bliss, even being featured on their local news station.

In the meantime, we'll keep the discussion going: would you wear an inexpensive ring until your husband is able to afford a new one?

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
