Wedding ring for your partner

some people prefer to buy or accept a new wedding ring than to inherit an old ring from the family.. some prefer to pass on the ring to the next generation.. at any rate, this depends entirely on the agreement between the two persons planning to get married. well for me, a new wedding ring is perfect for a special person.

Hi Job, I think that its a personal preference also. We got new rings when we were first married. He lost his!! GRRRRR it was a pricey one too. Nearly 400.00 and for a mans right that is high. But then we bought a cheaper on and the one that I have was from the resale, since mine got lost. GRRRRR Now that we are coming up on our 10 year we are both getting new ones again. His will be less expensive this time and sine mine was so inexpensive we are replacing it with a chocolate diamond. One that has a yellow diamond in it since thats my birthstone and I am very EXCITED about getting it.

hello lady, yes I think it is based on personal preference. And I really think that a new wedding ring for a special person is much appreciated. How sad that your husband lost his ring. Anyways, you'll have your new ring. And congrats for being a married couple for almost 10 years now. The value of a ring doesn't really matter, it's the strong relationship between a couple that really matters.

Before I got married my husband asked my if I want to inherit his mom wedding ring but I refused because I know that my husband treasure it very dearly. I rather let him keep it his jewelry box than to lost it because I got careless sometimes. Also I am okay with a new wedding ring because wedding ring is a life time ring that you will wear for the rest of your lofe.

A new wedding ring is perfect for a new couple! And inheriting a ring from the fmily clan is of course a matter of choice. It's a good thing that you didn't accept it coz for sure you will break your husband's heart if you lost it. An expensive ring is ok if it is within a budget that one can afford after all as you said it's a lifetime ring. You just need to take care of it and of course your relationship more than anything else.

Well, I think like you said, this is a matter of choice, and a lot of it is due to Cost as well. There are many couples out there like my husband and I who choose not to wear rings, and this is OK. We have been married now for almost 13 1/2 yrs. and it has never been a Big deal. But when you find your perfect mate and decide to marry that will be for the two of you to really decide as well.

You are so right, wedding ring is just a symbol that a person is already married. So having a ring is also a matter of choice. Well, I congratulate you for being married for 13.5 years now, that's amazing coz only few couples managed to stay that long. Keep it strong! Some couples have expensive rings but their relationship didn't strengthened by the cost of their rings. It's the love between the two people that really matters.
