How I Got Andy To Finally Wear His Wedding Ring!


Thank you to QALO for sponsoring this post!
 

I have a confession! Andy and I have been married for 7 years, and he’s NEVER consistently worn his wedding ring. It’s not like I didn’t get him one, because I totally did! ;) He had a whole running list of why it didn’t work for him: it hurt his finger, it was hard to adjust to, it turned his finger different colors, he couldn’t remember to put it on. I tried to buy him another one, but it was the same round of reasons of being uncomfortable and before I knew it, I gave up. My parents have been married for over 40 years, but my dad never consistently wore his wedding ring growing up so it didn’t phase me the way it may phase others. All I knew was that I needed to wear my wedding ring every day as that’s the same example my mom set for me. ;)

But let’s rewind for one second here. I did go against the grain for a minute there. Please don’t think I am a horrible wife. I hit a point of frustration a few years back and decided not to wear my ring for 2 weeks to show him how it made me feel. If he was really upset about it, I would have put it right back on, but it didn’t phase him a whole lot. But the joke went right back on me! ;) It was all good fun until the clerk at the grocery store hit on me!!! Talk about one awkward moment. From there on out I have faithfully worn my wedding ring daily.

As we’ve been together for almost 12 years this October and married for 7, I figured it was time to fix this minor problem we have around here. ;) I saw an ad on Facebook for these silicon wedding rings called QALO. Pure genius, right?! I immediately reached out and shared my story about Andy and asked for samples and our wedding ring dilemma has now been changed immensely!

In a nutshell, these rings capture style meets function. It’s perfect for those who simply don’t want to risk your normal band during your daily activities (working out, traveling, playing with the kiddos, etc.) or your ring is a safety hazard for the job you do. These rings are the perfect solution! They allow you to show your commitment to your loved ones, while not having to worry about damaging the ring or your finger! Not to mention, they also target common sensory issues with traditional wedding rings, and they’re designed to NOT make your finger sweat while wearing it. That was another huge problem that discouraged Andy from wearing his wedding ring.

So now it’s been 3 weeks and Andy is going strong wearing his wedding ring literally 80% of the time. I call that progress if you ask me. Going from 0% to 80% is HUGE in the Johnson house. ;)

And while we’re talking ALL about rings, I have to ask you – does anyone else take their wedding ring off at night? I’ve always wondered if I was the only one who did this. I am afraid I’ll either scratch Claire with it OR sometimes I sleep with my hand on my cheek and having a wedding ring can be really uncomfortable. If I forget to take it off and put it safety in a drawer where Claire can’t sneak it, I’ll just flip the ring around where the diamond is facing the palm of my hands. I have to admit: I am LOVING the stackable QALO rings, whether they’re used for a wedding ring alternative or just an awesome accessory – especially when doing DIY projects!
