Love & Marriage Love & Marriage

If you lost your wedding ring (s) - EDITS ADDED

1.-Would you tell your husband?
2.-Would you replace them with less expensive but identical ones? If you did, would you tell him that you did so?
3.- What do u think his reaction would be?

One if my nearest and dearest friends is going through this and I have no idea what to tell her for advice.

I mean, they Are her rings, not his? Though he did spend thousands on them (according to her) Idk. What are Your views?

EDIT - Thank you Ladies for all the responses! and I will get back to you after I speak to her tonight concerning whether or not they have insurance.
Atleast I know what to advise her to do. I'm going to jokingly tell her "Stop being a punk and tell him" she'll laugh, hopefully take my advice and let him know.
EDIT 2: she says theres no insurance on the rings

Oh man. Under a floormat in the car, behind the driver's seat.

The night I lost it, I had come home from work to get ready for a trip to see my inlaws. My husband was getting home much later from work. When I got home, my dog had had an accident in her kennel and it was BAD, so instead of being good and taking the extra two seconds to put the rings on my ring holder, I put them in my pocket. (I also got my purse, Oakley sunglasses, and ipod stolen out of my car when I dropped my dogs off at my Dad's house, which is in a really good neighborhood. It wasn't a great night for me.)

When I got back home from dropping the dogs off, my engagement ring was still in my pocket, but my band wasn't. Apparently it rolled out of my pocket, behind the driver's seat, and under the rug. I was detailing my car or I would never have found it! I was so shocked I just stared at it for a few before grabbing it and putting it on.

Where? That is exciting

I lost my wedding band a while back. I did tell my husband. I still had my engagement ring, so I wore that along with a ring he bought me for my first Mother's day. Thankfully I found it about 6 months later.

Sorry :(  

Quoting CjEmmemommy:

We looked:(


Quoting gracieb3:

The engagement ring should be caught in the u trap of the sink's pipes. Did you shut of the water and unscrew the pipes? If not your ring might still be there. 


Quoting CjEmmemommy:

I lost my engagement ring down the sink drain 2 years ago and then left my band at the tanning salon a few months ago:(

I have no rings, I told my husband both times, they were accidents and I felt bad but luckily they weren't expensive. They were still special to me and its sad but my husband wants/wanted to upgrade me for a while so this just gives him more reason.

1. and cry my eyes out I would be really upset. But I paid for my own ring set so he could really get mad at me too much. I would then save up to replace them.

Um, if you don't feel that you can tell your husband you lost your rings, you've got much bigger problems in your marriage.  

Of course I would tell him, and we would decide what to do about it together.  I would most likely leave it up to him whether to try to get an identical replacement, since he picked that out for me in the beginning, it means something, kwim?  If he didn't care about that, we would probably just go shopping until we found something we both liked in our price range.

Mine fell off a necklace i was wearing. I was pregnant at the time and took everything to get cleaned. Sales discounted my set so he bought me a set for a lot less. When we moved both his and mine were lost again. I have a ring I wear when my fingers aren't swollen from the heat.

I would just tell him. I would not lie to him or try to decieve him. I can't imagine being married to someone I would be afraid to be honest with about something like this.

I would tell him right away. I've never lost mine but he lost his. We never replaced his but we don't wear rings anymore. :)

Yes, I would tell him. My ring was cheap to begin with so I doubt he'd be too upset about  it but I would be upset over the sentimental value.
