Ladies, The Wedding Ring. An Achievement?



This post is based solely on the way I see brides and newly engaged women flash their rings. What comes to mind is "YES!!!", like a team that just won the premiership. There's a look of victory on their faces, a medal won, an accomplishment. And I get this just from looking at pictures.

See pictures after the cut.
I notice how the man never holds up his left hand, showing his ring for the world to see. It's usually the lady screaming "look look look!"


The ring becomes somewhat like a badge of honour. Look how Kloe Kardashian holds hers up. 


Nene Leaks unabashedly flaunts hers. Though I sense she also wants you to see just how huge that rock is! I'm getting you Nene. 


Classic bride flashing her ring. Isn't it reminiscent of an athlete who's doggedly run a race and finally gets to the finish line, receiving the gold medal for coming first?


"Yes. That's the sparkler. And it's all mine!" *tongue out*


Gabrielle Union's hot boo proposed about a week ago and we've been shown this ring several times since then.... Not like I mind. 

So with genuine curiosity and confusion, I wonder. Is that the state of mind of a new bride or a recently engaged woman? You know, an "I WON!" state of mind. Is there a sense of achievement or accomplishment that comes with a man "putting a ring on it"?
Engaged and married women in the house, I await your input. 

And how come the groom rarely ever flashes his ring? It's something to be proud of too, no?

Oh well, as usual my wandering mind wonders....

  1. Naturally women like showing off....new hair,a job,a BF,new car they will show off right about everything. They are also competitive with other females and the wedding ring/engagement ring is no exception to her showing off thing.

  2. First of all, I love your blog. Its classy.

    Now to the issue. You can't blame the ladies. I know I will flash mine. Lolz. But I wouldn't take it too seriously until we both say I do at the altar of God. That's the real deal dear, not the ring.

  3. It's on the same list you'll place a scholarship, a huge contract or gaining admission. So I'll just say it's a plus. The excitement dwindles along the line but at that moment, your joy is priceless.

    NO....
    The man is the achievement, if you have met a man that sees you, hears you, treats you the way you want to be treated and honor you and be faithful then that is the achievement. The ring should be a symbol of all that. The ring cannot mean more than the man, if it is then that woman whomever she is, is in trouble, cause the ring don't keep you warm.

    1. I hear you Rhapsody and I couldn't agree more. If everyone thought/thinks this way the success rate of marriages would be way higher than what we have today.

  5. What most women fail to see is that life just starts after the wedding, some just want to answer Mrs for the sake of it then after the wedding they start complaining about loneliness or being in an unhappy marriage. We should try to be patient and marry the one that deserves us not marry out of peer pressure. Like I always tell my women friends don't marry someone you love more than he loves you, if your man doesn't worship you or feel lucky to have then you're with the wrong man. Some men don't marry out of love and respect, they marry cos they think she'll make a good mother and she won't give wahala so that they can continue with their irresponsible ways.
    Marriage should actually scare you.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
