Your post reminded me of something from a million years ago....
My wife and I got married the year after I graduated high school (well, she was still a senior). Anyway, back then our Wedding Rings were the finest
set of metal rings that could be purchased at one of those free-standing kiosks in the shopping mall for the enormous amount of $32 (for both, not
each). They matched, that's all we cared about.
Anyway, I remember vividly that someone that I worked with (at the time she was maybe 28) said, and I quote, "You wouldn't find ME marrying some guy
who wouldn't put a big enough rock on my finger."
Two decades later.... My wife and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary and she has all but become an "old maid."
Disclaimer: Yes, over the past twenty years we've gotten real rings. Mine a simple band but hers has grown a bit here an there over the years.
Nothing too over the top though.
Edit to Add: I ended up becoming friends with the woman who'd made that statement (although every once in a while I would think of that and feel sad
for her... yet still chuckle a little).
