Now, I want to preface myself by saying cheating is bad, wrong, and usually pretty disgusting.
However, I think a wedding ring on a guy can be pretty hot, and make them more attractive. Why?
Well, every few days I’m on this bus and this guy gets on, and I am drawn to look at him. I have no idea why, he’s kind of cute, but he’s maybe 15-20 years older–so he was probably gorgeous when he was my age. He’s not exactly buff, but he probably had an athletic body when he was younger. And yes, I’ve spent too much time looking at him.
And then I realized, it’s my obsession with wedding rings on guys that has got me captivated. For some reason, I just love to see a guy with his wedding ring on, but now I’ve figured it out.
It’s the commitment.
When he still wears his ring, it is usually a sign that he’s completely–or mostly–committed to his wife. The ring is supposed to be a symbol of that commitment and their love for each other, and as some of you may remember, I love love. I don’t know if that’s completely coherent, but I think that’s as close to an explanation as I can get.
I think the first sign of trouble for me would be when my (future) husband forgets to wear his wedding ring. The ring reminds you of your marriage, so if it’s that easy to forget does that mean your marriage itself is forgettable? Of course, there are always extenuating circumstances, and maybe it was a one off or he was completely distracted. But when he starts to never wear it, then the loss is not an accident, it’s a choice.
He chooses to not show his dedication.
Despite this, I’m not saying that you can’t be committed without the ring. I’m sure there are plenty of marriages that last. But all I know is that when I get married, I plan to wear my ring proudly.
