My husband and I have been together for nearly nine years this Holiday season. We were friends for three years before that, and apparently one Christmas Eve night nearly nine years ago, sparks flew, and 2 kids later, here we are. To say he is my best friend would be an understatement. I’m not the easiest person to live with, and my flaws come through daily, yet he has stuck it out with me and I’m grateful that I have him each and every day.
What you may find a bit shocking is that he doesn’t wear a wedding ring, and not for the reasons you might think. First of all, this has never bothered me (shocking, I know!). He simply doesn’t like jewelry of any sort and although wearing jewelry truly bothers him. What has bothered him for some time now, is the fact that he has no way to outwardly show others that he is married. I don’t particularly see a problem with this, but apparently he does.
Only problem is, he doesn’t want to wear an actual piece of jewelry and would rather have a thin, plain band, made of tungsten or titanium. Tungsten wedding bands are said to be virtually indestructible and have a comfortable fit. I know many people who wear black tungsten rings, like the ones found at MensTungstenOnline.com, and although I don’t think that’s exactly what he’s looking for in a wedding band, I guess I can see the benefits. Titanium rings on the other hand are said to be the only element possessing the strength of steel, yet is also very lightweight and said to be quite comfortable.
Both are very low in price and it seems there is a sea of which to choose from, however I’m not quite sure which way to go. If you have tungsten or titanium jewelry, please leave a comment below and weigh in on how we can find a ring that is both attractive, strong and comfortable for him to wear!
