SimonG Jewelry

Going into marriage with the option in your mind that if it doesn't work out you can walk away is, in my opinion, a huge problem in today's society.

I run a store on Etsy called RomancingJuliet. RomancingJuliet is dedicated to selling wedding accessories. In order to keep "up to date" on the recent and coming trends I read "Modern Bride". Last week I was at the store and picked up the August/September issue and was dog earring pages on color combinations I liked and the newest style veils when I came across this ad for SimonG Jewelry.

The SimonG Jewelry ad shows a picture of this engagement ring and has a note hanging from the ring that says " Virtually Eliminates Cheating, Since You'll Never Want To Take It Off". It caught me off guard when I read it and actually made me sit back and think to myself "what is marriage today". It would make you think that today's "modern bride" is already subconsciously giving themselves the option to cheat on their husbands.

When has this become okay? Marriage is a union that bonds one person to another, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health, till death do they part. Or, at least, it used to be that. Unfortunately today that seems like "a lot of pretty words" but the people saying them either don't understand what they're saying, or don't care.

I believe marriage is a good thing for society. You can't go into it looking for an out as this ad for SimonG jewelry would insinuate. There are going to be tough times and theres going to be good times, if you can tough out the bad it will make the good that much better.

  1. sometimes i think they need to change the vows you make that your repeat to something more plainer for people to understand. not for sicker for poorer, but you don't leave and give up b/c he's sick and poor. wish i could articulate that somehow better, but i think you get my gist.
