Tying on another woman's engagement ring?

Recommended Posts

There are lots of opinions on this one. Some people don't mind and even like to let people try theirs on. Other people really don't.

 

Personally, I wouldn't care, but DH once told me his ex-wife had done that all the time and he hated it. So, while it wouldn't bother me, I don't share mine because of what he thinks.

i guess i wouldn't care at all - i never would have thought twice about it. but i never believe in that superstitious stuff anyway. and as for someone else trying it on ... who cares?! does that really take away any of the meaning and the value of it?

Ann - i don't think you said anything "weird" - i think that response was WERID if anything.

 

in regards to the ring - i always let my friends try my rings on - and vice versa - it is fun and sometimes it is nice to see what your ring(s) look like on someone else b/c you are always looking down at them which is a warped point of view.

 

at my bach party we were in the pool all day drinking for one of the days and i made my cousin wear my e-ring for like 4 hours b/c she was napping and drinking champagne out of the pool - my jeweler drilled in my head that long term chlorine would be bad for the type of ring i have. she didn't want to give it back - it was kind of funny!

 

plus i am not that superstitious and my relationship with my DH is not dependent on a material object - i would rather lose my rings ANY DAY than lose my DH - they are replaceable material objects.

I've heard that about being suspicious as well, but I never really believed in it. People have asked to try my ring on and I don't hesitate to let them. I agree that seeing it on someone else's hand gives a different perspective and you can admire it differently then anyone else.

 

I remember Jacqueline and I were down the shore last summer (or perhaps the summer before?) and we kept saying how beautiful and shiny the other persons ring was. We each felt like our own wasn't as sparkly even though we both love our rings. So it's nice to have someone put your ring on and you get to actually SEE the sparkle!

i dont believe its bad luck to wear someone's ring. I had a friend that would ask me to wear her ring because she thought my hands were pretty and she hated her own hands. I felt kind of funny wearing them though. I cant explain it but it just seemed weird to wear her rings. Maybe because i was 21 at the time and thought of getting married anytime soon freaked me out. lol

 

I've never had anyone asked to try my ring on. I dont think i'd care though.

My MOh told me this and wouldn't try mine on. Not that I just give it away for people to try on but if someone asks I don't mind showing them or if they try it on.

 

Definitely think that's just an old superstition.........

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
