and it only took him 7 months to lose his wedding ring

yep. you read right. he's lost the wedding ring. he lost it a few weeks ago actually, but i'm just now coming to the realization that it might actually be gone.

see, he was working on the house.... outside of the house.... and he was wearing it. he was shoveling and doing a bunch of manly stuff that i totally love him for and makes him even that much more hot in my eyes. but then he lost it. and he's not quite sure where. or when. was it in the backyard? was it in the front? he doesn't know.

but you have to love the man that rents a metal detector the very next day with the hopes of finding it. i mean, that's some serious dedication.

but now the reality is starting to set in. the reality that means we may never find his ring again. that his poor ring is sitting somewhere, cold and lonely. all alone. just waiting for us to find it and pick it up. it even sends me dreams. 2 of them to be exact. but i still can't find it. and it's really kind of sad. and i hate the fact that he goes to bed with no ring on anymore. and that we can't do "wonder married powers, activate"... and that he lost the ring we exchanged on our wedding day. when i think about it that way, i almost start to cry. so i don't think about that way.

i'm guessing though that boyfriend isn't the first (and most likely not the last) to lose his wedding ring. i'm just wondering though, doesn't it normally take them longer to lose?? sheesh.

My Dad lost his a couple of times---having to take it off at work for various reasons and then forgetting about it. (Convenience??)

My buddy lost his in less than 20 days. I bought an extra ring that I wear when I do stuff around the house or go camping and leave the real one at home. If I lose the extra, no big deal since it was only $69 for a generic looking tungsten ring.

That's why we bought the cheapest ring possible. Husband hasn't lost his but if he does....

My husband lost his after 6 years of marriage. That was 3 years ago, and I just replaced it. He knows he's mine with or without the ring. :)

Hehehe took mine 30 days and it was lost in the horse........well you get the idea forever. He has lost it twice since then doing work on the farm so cheer up he will do it again.......lol Husband now has one he wears to work and when we go out otherwise here at home it is in his drawer safe from all harm.

I would cry too thinking about it.. I scared him once though, he took it off at night to put cream on and left it on the nightstand.. well I hide it to see if he would fess up that he lost it and did not know where it was.. the minute he realized he had lost it he called me frantic.. then I felt like an ass....

Mine takes his off and plays with it all the time. I tell him that if he loses it he loses me. I haven't been that lucky yet.

Oh that sucks - cute that he got a metal detector though - I guess it's possible it could still turn up...

A week after our wedding, my ring split in half like a cheap adjustable ring. And it wasn't cheap! I kept crying because I thought it was a bad sign.

If you don't find it, get him a new one. Do something special to commemorate this ring so that you have good memories. And so you can use your powers for good.

Oh noooooo . . .

I lost mine once, for 2 WEEKS! It wasn't that it was my wedding ring that killed me, it was that my setting used to belong to my grandmother and I thought I'd lost a special family heirloom FOREVER. I was so relieved when I found it - well, a very kind stranger found it. I bought her flowers.

for the first year of our marriage, scott didn't wear his. he said it felt "weird"

now he wears it all the time! I always double check for it when he goes out with his friends!

fortunately, a man's wedding band isn't as expensive to replace as a woman's. (usually, anyway)

I hope ya'll find it!
