Married Men Who Don’t Wear Rings (Red Flag #1!)
I don’t get tangled up much in celebrity lives and fuck up but I can’t help but pay some attention to the recent Dream and Christina Milian debacle. I feel sorry for the chick. She spent her whole career being the good girl (come on “dip it low” was kinda a joke) to marrying a guy that was so not her type. Now either she is a sucka for love or a whore to attention. Whatever the case may be I noticed something was up when I started to see pictures of Dream without his wedding ring.
Call me old fashion but when I get married my husband is wearing his ring. Everyday. All day. The only time he should take it off is to sleep and shower. It’s not even about showing the world he’s taken but it’s a sign of his commitment to me. Wendy Williams explained (several times) that her husband doesn’t wear a wedding ring cause that’s not his style. Instead he wears a pinky ring and she’s ok with that.
To that I say, he cheated on you with a chick from your local bank; you wrote about it in your book and talk about it often. Fuck his pinky ring and everything he stands for.
Now, men that I know who wear their wedding rings do so with pride. One day Married Manny (I”ll hence forth refer to all my married Mannys as Manuel”… One day Manuel walked out the house without his ring and almost lost his shit. He couldn’t continue our lunch until he mentally retraced his steps and remembered that he must of left it on his dressed because “I took it off to put lotion on my face.”
The cutest thing is when you see a group of married men joking with a newlywed man about his new hardware. The lump comes to my through just thinking about it. It’s an elite club, especially if they are men of color. There should be some pride and support for those men who 1 – Take that step to commit 2 – Wear their rings proudly.
If I discover that a man is married but doesn’t wear his ring automatically I’m thinking he’s a cheater or that marriage isn’t real. You know people in the black community love to claim marriage when they really are just common law. If I don’t see a ring on your finger I have a hard time calling the woman by your side your wife. You don’t even respect her enough to where the ultimate sign on your union
NO, a neck tattoo of her name doesn’t count!
