I lost my engagement ring. I mean, really lost it. I haven’t seen it in a month, maybe more.
And I’m probably not supposed to say this, but I don’t miss it.
And while I’m talking about my ring, I should say that I’m defensive only because people keep writing these pieces about how stupid it is to have a diamond engagement ring. How wasteful and bad and selfish and outmoded and generally super duper hugely lame.
And also, you’re a bad feminist if you have one.
I don’t wear it much anymore. I mean, I wasn’t wearing it much before I lost it. Now I have a wedding band, and that says what I want the second finger of my left hand to say, and the diamond feels excessive. The diamond feels like a special occasion, the wedding band feels pleasantly mundane.
But all the same, I get annoyed and huffy when someone talks about how ridiculous diamond rings are. How we should all be past this. How it’s sexist. It’s uncool. It’s a cliché. It’s too expensive to be justified.
I should never have gotten a diamond ring or had a big white wedding. Maybe I shouldn’t even have gotten married, actually. Especially not so young.
My third wife would only marry me If I got her a diamond ring....cost me over 1500 quid and I didn't even get it back after the divorce....grrrrr.
Just don't get wed folks, cost me everything.
