Wedding Ring

As a couple, Pave and I refrence our wedding rings quite often, as in "I still got my ring on" (which roughly translates to "ya, I guess I still love you right now") or a more recent one from him, "I didn't put a ring on your overies". This came after I was complaining that they just can't get thier act together and make some dominate follicals for me! It made me laugh, because at the time I had felt like I was failing him, and our plans for our family. Though Pave my not right me mushy love letters, he warms my heart through his unconventionally ways of telling me that he loves me, no matter what, and no matter if I am able to bear him his children.

I've been reading some blogs of other couples that struggle with infertility, and on one of them, their marriage has crumbled under the stress of everything. Add Image

I decided right then and there, I will forever be happy if it's just Pave and I, and no children, if it means that the path to having children will tear us apart.

Lets just hope it won't get to that.

On another note... Apparently wedding bands are only made to last five years! Isn't that awesome news! UGH! I have a beautiful solitaire engagement ring, and my wedding band has princess cut diamonds, that are in a channel. Within the last 2 months, two, TWO of these diamonds have fallen out. One I was able to find, and they replaced it, but on Friday I noticed that I was missing one from the other side. Granted we have the lifetime warranty, so we don't have to pay for the missing diamond, or the work to put it back in, but still... my parents have been married for 43 years, and she still has the EXACT same ring. Nothing has changed!

They have to ship it to the nearest corporate store, so I'll get my ring back next Tuesday. I hate not having my ring on. I feel naked.


  1. Wow! They're only made to last five years? That's not very reassuring. I've had a few dreams that a stone had fallen out of my engagement ring. I always breathe a sigh of relief when I wake up and it's still sitting pretty in the ring.

  2. I suffer from infertility too. I hate it but as I was laying in bed one night with my husband and my two dogs I realized that with or without kids, I was happy at that moment. Its amazing being in love. Good luck. I hope everything works out for you.

  3. I can tell you, just from the perspective of someone who's been there, that Jer and I are stronger from our infertility journey then I ever would've imagined possible. I look back 4 years ago and if you had told me then what I know now, I would've told you that you were insane, but here we are. I'm thankful that we weren't one of the crumbling marriages that you read about.

    As for the wedding band...that IS crazy, but my "post deployment" gift is a new wedding band so I'm very, very excited over that! When we got engaged and married we were young and poor so my wedding bands aren't exactly all bling bling or anything! lol. Not that it's about the ring...but still, I'm excited about new rings!

  4. I am so glad that you realized that. A lot of times having kids just consumes a woman, and it can be the end to a great relationship.
    Five years? Seriously? We paid out the ass for custom bands for my e-ring. Mine better hold up til I'm in the grave, darn it!
