This morning as I was on my way back home from Trader Joe’s I was listening to a radio program in my car that gave me an idea for this blog post. The radio program is hosted by a man and a woman and each day they ask a question for listeners to call in and answer. The question this morning was directed at women. Say you have been dating a man for some time and he pops the question. The engagement ring he presents to you he gave to another woman who he loved and proposed to before he met you. He took the ring and had it melted did, redesigned and the diamonds reset into it differently before he proposed and presented it to you.
The question is would you accept the ring or would you be upset that he did not buy you a totally different ring?
While I was listening to it, all of the women who called in said they would not want it because it first belonged to another woman that he made memories with. The female host of the radio program said she would happily take the ring and I agree with her. I would take it too. YES, I would.
The way I see it is that he melted it down, had it redesign and reset differently, so to me the ring no longer is associated with the other woman. Once it was all melted down it amounted to parts and the parts no longer appear the same after it’s reconstruction.
