Ladies, Would You Marry A Man Without Getting A Ring?

NeighborhoodNomad. NeighborhoodNomad. Posts: 2,731 ✭✭✭✭✭
Would you marry a man without ever having a "wedding" ring?

What is the significance in a ring?

Im very non traditional and somewhat unorthodox, that being said, I cant imagine ever wearing a "wedding" ring, nor do I ever plan on getting one for my wife.

So would you marry that man?
Why/Why not?

    Yes. I'm non-traditional as well and plan on exchanging a fiscally worthless, sentimentally priceless memento. Plus, I rarely wear rings anyway. Perhaps hand crafted his&her necklaces. Something with a more significant meaning than a price tag for sure.

    I like that.

    yes, the wedding ring is a pretty new phenomenon in my culture anyway. i do have/wear one, my husband doesn't, he doesn't wear any jelwery tho

    That's whats up. They don't do that in Africa/In your culture?
    Is there anything tangible that signifies marriage?

    yes, in my culture the man or his family usually pay a dowry to the girl's family. it can be anything, money, jewelry, livestock, property

    usually it is jewelry put the concept of a wedding ring is fairly new. something we've adopted from being here


    I just learned something new...

    I hear of dudes actually financing a two to three year loan over a ring..that's just silly to me.

    It would depend on the reason. Lack of money is understandable.

    i dislike weddings. the planning is a headache.

    my wedding photo consists of me and hubby kissing in our work uniforms. Me in scrubs and him in dirty coveralls. I took my lunch early and he met me at the courthouse. We got married and went back to work, lol. At the time he was making $10/hr blowing insulation for a roofing company. I was a CNA. That photo means more to me than any pic i could have taken in a white dress surrounded by bridesmaids because it reminds me how far we've come.

    That's love girl!!
    You have a beautiful baby (keep jamel from giving advice to the little man, lol)

    My Parent's got married at my Aunt's house and they are still married. That extravagant wedding shit is a big waste of money. If u really love someone the cost of a wedding or getting a ring should not matter imo. I'm her's and she's mines that's all that matters

    big weddings are for females bruh .... if she aint trippin about it dudes always prefer to keep that shit low-key...

    but ...you know what i never understood .... how come the dude only get a wack ass wedding "band" while the female is out here stuntin' with some multi carat rock tho? ....shit.... i want to shine too dammit!

    So, you're mad because I quoted a post.....that included a scantily clad pic of you......that you sent to another man.....while both of you are supposed to be in committed relationships with other people?

    Hilarious.

    gtfoff my page and mind your fucking business old man.


    Oh wait, you have no business which is why you stalk various females on the internet tryibg to interject yourself into their business.

    Fuck off.

    Most of your business is public knowledge Kathryn.

    You should learn to exercise more discretion.

    You're too old to continuously find yourself in compromising situations.

    I'm extremely disappointed in your behavior and expect much better of you in the future.

    With compassion, concern, sincerity, and due diligence.

    I hope you die of old age tonight.

    deadeye
    That's a horrible thing to say.

    I'm sorry you feel that way Kathryn.

    However, I've never heard of anyone dying of old age at 43.

    My words must've really hit home for you to want me to die tonight.

    I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings.

    Instead of wishing me death, your time would be better served reflecting on your past transgressions and thinking about what steps you can take to improve yourself.

    Titanagraphs but I caught feelings..ok.

    Type me another one pops.

    deadeye
    You wished death upon me Kathryn.

    Solely because I quoted a post which featured you in a bathrobe with your privates partially exposed.

    A pic that would have never been publicly accessible had it not been for your carelessness and bad judgement.

    Essentially, you want me to die for your mistakes.

    Smarten up Kathryn.

    If anyone caught feelings it's you.

    This is just entertainment for me.

    @deadeye nah mate, fuck off, I literally hate seeing your name in my notifications because I know it's your FUCKING LIST. I'm tired of being @'d to some thread because of your shitty list, makes me just want to punch you in your fat fucking face.

    You're a digrace to creepset and 'mature' black men the world over.

    Fuck your entire existence.


    You are a plain idiot. Since you cannot give birth nor have a proper sense of enduring and suffering you cannot understand my post.

    @Westie has put her life on the line several times to give life. I wish I had an ounce of that courage, endurance and resiliance.

    Peace

    I was married for two years before we bought rings.

    When we got married, we were really young & broke. But we didn't want something as superficial as jewelry and a ceremony to make us hold off getting married. Tomorrow ain't promised.

    So we did the courthouse thing. Hubby bought me a ring on our second anniversary and tbh I barely wear it. I wear latex gloves for work so it cuts thru every pair. It stays in my jewelry box 90% of the time.

    Rings don't matter, tbh. My uncle married my aunt pat & tied a string around her finger 20 years ago. He said 'if she loves me she'll stay regardless." 20 years later & she has enough rings for her hands, toes & mine too.


    i dislike weddings. the planning is a headache.

    What does a ring signify to you?

    Would it matter if it was a cubic zirconia or something hand-crafted like @sixsicksins said?
  • NeighborhoodNomad. NeighborhoodNomad. Posts: 2,731 ✭✭✭✭✭
    No. Because I want a ring. No other reason.

    why?

    why?

    Because I just want a ring. I would get him a ring if I asked him to marry me.
