Twelve years ago, inside the Basilica of St. Mary, a 22-year-old kid put a gold ring on my 23-year-old finger. I did the same. We’ve both sported wedding rings almost every hour of every day since.
“With this ring, I thee wed,” right?
But when Prince William marries Kate Middleton, the Prince won’t be wearing a wedding ring.
Apparently many male royals have skipped the ring.
It can’t be because they’re trying to pick up chicks at London pubs, right? Everyone knows these guys are married!
The whole thing got us thinking about wedding rings. Why do we wear them? What’s the history? What would your spouse say if you stopped wearing yours?
There’s something interesting about having a physical object representing an emotional connection. I’d love your thoughts, and I’ll use them in tonight’s Good Question at 10!
