Old Wedding Rings
I was recently moving some things around in our home office and came across my DH's old wedding ring (from his first marriage). My first instinct was to toss it in the trash, but then I thought better of it. When I mentioned it to DH, he said that he would like to keep it to give to SS when he's older (he's 16 now). For some reason, this doesn't sit well with me.
A few years ago, I took my old rings along with all my jewellry from my "old" life and had it melted down and made into a very beautiful bracelet. It's something I can pass down to my granddaughter, without it being in her mind connected to my marriage to her grandfather.
I think that by DH giving this wedding ring to his son, he is giving him the impression that he is hanging on to memories of the marriage to BM. I know that DH doesn't feel that way at all, but my concern is how SS will interpret it.
What did all of you do with your old wedding rings, and your now DH's ring? I'm very curious to see how others have handled this.
