When I married my bride many years back, we had both been married once before. She didn't want a ring.
Several years later, I think we both realized what the ring symbolized.
I won't go into that as you can google it, but I wear my ring and seldom take it off as I want those who see it to know that I've committed to another. That said, we all know there are those who wear rings and aren't as committed as they should be.
Ring or no ring is a personal choice, but there is tradition and symbolism represented by the gift.
I hope he didn't borrow the money to buy it, but I see nothing wrong with giving a nice ring to the one you love. If she wants him to be her partner, I hope she graciously accepts it for the symbol it represents.
I've thought about buying one for my horse, but can't figure out how she would wear it.......
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
