“Men are meant to be emotionally exfoliated.” Another great line……

My husband bought my engagement ring when he was a grad student and didn’t have a lot of money. I really loved it though since he took a lot of care picking it out and finding something he knew I’d really love, despite the modest amount spent. Years later he bought me a “replacement” much bigger and blingier ring but I rarely wear it, preferring to keep to a plain gold band most of the time. The other one gets soap, and lotion and melted cheese and other icky things stuck in it and so it’s now just for special occasions. I’ve never really understood the ring obsession, to be quite honest.
