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"

He then followed it up with:

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

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:

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?

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
