One way love is measured...

Sorry, this has nothing to do with writing. It's just that I found the following so annoying.

AOL news -- mostly celebrity-paid press releases -- included a photo story about engagement rings,
some with rocks the size of marbles.

Supposedly the larger the ring's diamond, the more a man showed how much he loves her. So, if you
are a married woman, look at yours and say how much your husband loves you (chuckle, chuckle).

Heck, my husband and me got a cheap wedding ring for me, then we elope. We didn't have anything special, it's been 12 years and counting. Big rings and weddings don't mean much in my opinion.

My late husband Matt had two diamonds from his previous marriages (he lost both wives) and had them made into one beautiful engagement ring. When we married, we went to the flea market in Florida and bought a fake wedding band. Eventually, I got tired of both bands as soap got under the bands and chapped my skin. So we went to a jeweler and had the engagement ring made into one band (which I designed) and I've worn it ever since. Only now it is on my right hand and not the left. It's a lovely treasure and memory of twenty-nine wonderful fun-filled years. So if you can afford them why not get one of those lovely diamonds, if you can't go to the flea market. You'd be surprised what you will find and the fake look just as real as the (what did you say) carbon ones? I know I fooled many a person with my flea market wedding band.

One might say my engagement rocked! Hubby and I got engaged on St. Valentine's Day. It was Friday night and snowing hard. Last-minute shoppers, we drifted into a small jewelers, up a flight of stairs. How we got there I'll never know as, although it was in my home town, we didn't even know it was there until that night. We were only going to look at rings, and modest ones at that, but the owner was there and so wanted to sell us a ring on Valentine's Day. So romantic. As it happened she was going out of business and absolutely insisted we take a beautiful heart-shaped diamond ring that would have been way beyond our budget had she not marked it down to half price. Not only did it not clean out the bank account, we even had enough money left over to buy dinner. :D

Might I say LilliesCarol and Quoyle both of your stories are so sweet. :)
