Because I am divorced, I no longer wear my wedding ring. I put it away and really didn't know what to do with it. Should I wear it on my right hand? Should I pawn it? Should I melt it down and make something new with it? I wasn't sure what the protocol was - so I decided to put it away, and planned on giving it to Karina when she's older.
Then I began to wonder...what would Karina do with it? Would she even want it? What is the right thing to do?
Then I came across an interesting ad for those facing the same predicament. The item advertised is a wedding ring coffin. Yes, you read that right - a WEDDING RING COFFIN.
The Ivory Wedding Ring Coffin is a new addition to our product line.
The burgundy interior is a dramatic contrast to the ivory finish. Like our mahogany coffin, it is ideal for burying the past and putting a marriage and divorce behind you.
You can even include a personalized plaque to your coffin, such as:
Bury the past and move on to a new tomorrow
Rest In Peace
Gone and Forgotten
Six feet isn't deep enough
I don't know. What exactly are you supposed to do with the coffin once your ring is in it? Are you supposed to bury it? Perhaps this process can be therapeutic to some people, but I just don't think this is me.
What about you? Do you have a wedding ring? Do you wear it everyday, or just on special occasions? And if you've gone through a divorce (like me), what have you done with your previous wedding ring? Would a wedding ring coffin be something of interest to you?
