Promise Ring

Let’s take a trip down memory lane.

Several years ago… 9½ years ago to be exact.

I was walking around with a huge baby bump. My first baby girl was close to being born. [We’ll just call her, Lisa.]

My baby girl was conceived with my [former] love of my life. I say former because things did not go that way. . . He was a douche (in my eyes anyway) and hurt me when – he slept with another woman, breaking my heart into a million pieces.

Blogging all wrong

Once upon a time… venting online was an outlet for me. I never reveled who I was or left clues that could lead you to me. I spilled it all. I told the keyboard everything.

I was surprised to have over 1,000 regular followers leaving me feedback, rooting for me, giving me unwanted advice. Those strangers knew everything about me. More than anyone I faced day-to-day.

I never intended to have readers. I assumed I was boring and nothing entertaining could come about my day. I was so wrong! Lots of people found my drama filled day-to-day life and ranting’s helpful and entertaining.

I’m leaning more towards train wreak – you just can help but watch! But that’s how I roll. (Really though, train-wreak!) Shit was better than any soap opera you could watch on TV. Best of all, it was the flat out truth. My life fucking sucked fucking smelly donkey cock!

Engagement Ring History

Comment from: jessicadall member of theknot.com

“From all my reading, engagement rings were rare up until Victorian times. In medieval times the most common engagement gift was a thimble. Through the regency period, engagements were generally so short, people still only had one wedding ring. come the Victorians, however, engagements could be upwards of a year.

ALSO, it was very common for brides to be to “lose their virtue” during this engagement period. As some less scruplous men would propose to get into someone’s pant, they started making it possible to suing men for basically breach of contract if they proposed and then ran.

Expensive rings were another “down payment” making it do men didn’t propose and then take off leaving the woman “ruined””

Wedding Rings
Rings are likely chosen for the symbol of marriage because of the circular shape because it represents the union as eternal—without a beginning or end.

American men started to wear wedding bands during World War II to serve as a reminder they had a wife waiting for them back at home during their lengthy time away.

Several ancient cultures (including the Romans) claim ownership of the reason why the ring is placed on the third finger on the left hand (the ring finger). It was believed that there was a vein that ran directly to the heart from that finger. The Romans called it the “Vena Amoris” which when translated means “Vein of Love”—a fitting name for a wedding ring.
