There is one thing that really drives the little guy crazy. He's not able to understand or accept his mom's stubborness when it comes to wearing a wedding ring. My refusal to wear one is just beyond his grasp. Maybe because I've never given him a proper explanation. Fact of the matter is I don't like them. My husband took his off right after the wedding cerimony, 19 years ago, which was perfectly ok with me. And I wore mine on and off for 12 years (mostly off) and my pregnancy was the perfect excuse to take it off for good. "But why, mommy?" he keeps nagging me. Just because! It's not that I mind wearing jewellery. After all I'm a gal! I just hate conventional notions that if you're married you have to wear a wedding band. I guess I still like the idea of keeping the rebel inside of me alive. But it also bothers me that it might cause my son some heartache. So, what do I do? Wear it for the sake of my son's happiness? Would my stubborn refusal cause some unnecessary trauma? Or just stick to the fact that I don't want to wear something just because people think I have to.
I welcome your words of wisdom.
