This isn't to knock anyone who has a wedding ring or has had one, but a sincere question. Do you feel a wedding ring is necessary for marriage? Like, why not a wedding bracelet, or watch, or necklace/chain, or earring? Or why not just the commitment? Is that thinking too little of the marriage to not have a ring because you fail to show others you're in a committed relationship for life? A little fact: I read somewhere the wedding ring started with the Egyptians as their tradition for marriage. I wonder how it spread as a now common tradition like so.
