oh yeah, the ring picture. why why why??? did she not look at the picture before she posted it? i suppose the people that know her would know if they have a kid together so to her the maternity thing isn’t a big deal but if you’re going to try and show off your hideous engagement ring on fb, then at least take a good fucking picture.
Maternity ward is where you go when expecting or having a baby.
And @Malteaser…Holy shit, you just wrote more there then in all your history of posting. If I’d known I would’ve admitted how awesome I think you are a long time ago.
Come on Ben, get on the ball.
I know this is a bit late, but the ring in picture one isn’t actually a wedding ring; it’s an Irish thing, two hands holding a heart, and it is effectively an engagement engagement ring; as in a promise to one day get engaged.
It’s a Claddagh ring. And it’s not just a promise to get engaged, here in Ireland they’re often used as engagement and/or wedding rings. But it’s all about how you wear it. For instance, if you point the heart towards yourself, you’re single, whereas if you point it out, someone else has your heart. If the heart is underneath your finger and not showing, it generally means married.
Also, you’ve got the orientation backwards:
“The way that a Claddagh ring is worn on the hand is usually intended to convey the wearer’s romantic availability, or lack thereof. The ring is worn on the right hand with the heart facing outward to show that the wearer is not romantically linked but is looking for love. When turned inwards, it is shown that the wearer is in a relationship, or their heart has been “captured”; the heart is points down the hand and into the veins which lead to the wearer’s heart. The ring worn on the left hand with the heart facing outward shows the wearer is engaged; turned inward indicates the wearer is married.”
Wearing the ring with the heart under your finger (not visible) could be seen as rescinding the offer of friendship, loyalty, and love that a claddagh is supposed to represent.
