My Husband Lost His Wedding Ring and I Didn’t Kill Him

siesta keys, florida

My husband went away for a week to go on a brocation. His friend Steven is getting married (yay Steven and Christina!) and 14 of his closest friends rented a house in Siesta Keys, Florida.  While definitely a weird place to go for a bachelor party, the city does have beaches, bars and strip clubs so the men had their ample supply of boobs to ogle. That’s what bachelor parties are all about, right?

Everything was going great until Wednesday. On Wednesday, my phone rang and the caller ID said it was Vinny. It was 2PM and I was confused. I knew he was at the beach and didn’t expect him to be calling so I thought maybe he somehow butt dialed.

Diana: Hello?

Vinny: Baby!

Diana: Are you calling me on purpose?

Vinny: Yes. Okay, I have something to tell you. First, I’m okay.

When he said “I’m ok,” I thought the worst. Last time he went to a bachelor party, a cab he was in didn’t have breaks and him and his bros were in an accident. So I’m like, OKAY! YOU’RE OKAY! But what happened?!

Vinny: I was playing football in the ocean…

While he spoke, I thought, “omg. And a jelly fish stung you? A shark circled you? Rip tide tried to steal you away from me? But you’re okay! But omg, talk faster.”

Vinny: And I lost my ring.

Diana: Oh.

Vinny: I’m so sorry, babe. I’m so stupid! I’m sorry.

Diana: It’s okay. I guess it happens!

A part of me was upset but the other part of me was happy he wasn’t eaten by a shark. I didn’t argue with him and instead sent him back to his brotivities. Because I’m perfect.

My friend Michele was impressed with how calm I was. Initially I was too (impressed by my own calmness) but by the time her and I spoke about it, I had been left alone with my thoughts for far too long and annoyance had set it.  I assured her I would never let him forget about it and likely bring it up during every fight. Every. Single. One. Of. Them. Just like the relationship experts recommend.

My husband lost his wedding ring

He looks sad but really he’s just drunk.

This entire fiasco got me thinking about the importance of wedding rings in a marriage. Was Vinny going to suddenly act like a real bachelor now that he was ringless for a few days? Would he love the way his naked finger felt and comes home with a new found hatred of all-things marriage? Would his anti-wedding ring bros brainwash him? So many questions, so little space.

Your turn: How do you feel about wedding rings? Do you wear one? Does your spouse? And more importantly, do you even care?

    I could not stop laughing. My mother reminds my father of everything he has ever done wrong since 1981,every single time they fight. They have been
    happily married for over 33 years. It really is the secret to forever. You remind him every day, every day. Lol

      Your parents are always taking romance walks around the neighborhood so I know they know what’s up. Makes me feel like I’m doing the right thing!

    Shawn thought he lost his ring once (it was in another pair of pants pocket), I was pissed for those short 10 min it took him to find it. He didn’t want to get an expensive ring bc he says “all men lose thier wedding rings” but my dad never lost his or took it off and his father doesn’t wear one, so I guess people have different thoughts about them. Keep us posted about what you do, and what gift he’s going to buy you to make up for it! 😉

      Why did he put it in his jeans? Mmmmhmmm. LOL JK bc Shawn is a classy dude. Yes, it’s different for everyone but I like us both to wear one, as you do. I didn’t do anything besides remind him when the opportunity presented itself. He has since replaced it with another ring. This one was way cheaper since apparently all men DO lose their rings at some point.

    My husband has worn his wedding band a handfull of times throughout our one year marriage. He warned me before we got married, that jewelry bothers him and he hates wearing anything except for a watch. I was fine with it, knowing my husband is ubber faithful and a lack of a wedding band would not be an open invitation to random unwanted women trying to steale my husband away. When it came time to purchasing a ring, I was leaning towards an inexpensive one ( to have more $ towards mine, since I would gladly be wearing mine ) however my husband was all into appeasing his married duties and wanted to wear his ring. To make this already long story a little shorter. I picked out a nice ring, which he was “irritated” by anyway and would wear it as often as he could but complain about it. Then he lost a lot of weight and the ring has become too big on him. So the lucky guy hasnt worn the ring in over 6 months. I’m totally ok with it. Hes not going anywhere, for now.

      It’s not jewelry! It’s a symbol of your relationship. That is, of course, if you believe that. If you’re cool with than that’s all that matters. personally, if Vinny warned me he wasn’t into wearing his ring, I’d warn him I’m not into [insert something he wants here]. Luckily we both agree on matters of the ring. On that note, he has warned me of other things he will/won’t do so ultimately all men appear to be the same. 😉
