It's funny how one thought can lead to another, and another, and another. I went to our CPA today to have our taxes prepared and filed. I was mainly thinking and hoping that I had every form I needed. At the end he recommended that I have with holdings done as single with no dependents. Ok, so first time I will be "single" in forever!
When I had left his office, I began to think and wonder, when do people stop wearing their wedding rings? I'm sure somewhere there is etiquette for this written. But I really wasn't thinking in terms of being proper, more of, when and why do they stop wearing their wedding rings?
As I've written before, the law and the church, both decree that I am no longer married. I KNOW that, it takes two people to make a union, a marriage, in both those terms. And at first it made me angry, why do they get to say I'm no longer married, while my heart feels married? Lately, though, and I suppose it comes from a degree of acceptance from my part, as I place my rings on my finger, I just wonder. And hey, my rings are beautiful, I love to see them on my hand. Dennis selected them for me.
But somehow, they don't feel the same as they used to. So I was just wondering if any of you have thought about this matter, what did you feel, what did you do? I continue to wear mine, but am wondering why when I look at them now, the "luster" is fading.
I thank you all for the "safeness" I feel here. I can ask or discuss things that sometimes are difficult to share with even family, knowing you will not judge me. You will listen, share your thoughts and experiences and I am so grateful to know you all.
