Wedding ring discourages cheating.

Will an 'I'm married' imprint wedding ring discourage cheating?

 
By Samantha Randazzo, Styleite

Do you ever look at a particularly strange product and wonder who pitched it in a boardroom - and what team of brand executives thought it was a good idea?

A new "anti-cheating" titanium wedding band, sold for $550 on TheCheeky.com, has the words "I'm Married" carved on the inside. The site promises that the engraving will imprint the wearer with the phrase, thus preventing them from simply taking off their wedding band and cheating. This ring has caused quite a buzz around the Interwebs, which is no surprise, because it raises quite a few questions:

  1. Wouldn't the imprint fade in 20 minutes, giving the wearer ample time to carry out their, um, plans?
  2. What if the person who is cheating with the wearer simply doesn't care that they're married? (Or, as an especially observant Twitter user pointed out, what if they can't read?!)
  3. If you feel the need to purchase this, shouldn't you reexamine your relationship?

Basically, this item would be purchased under the assumption that its wearer was going to be unfaithful at some point, which really should be a deal breaker at the start. Furthermore, we're guessing that men won't be too keen to slip this on their fingers, because it brands them as potential cheaters. And we say "men" only because there doesn't appear to be a women's version at all.

There are men and women who have cheated, rings on, in the house, with the pictures hanging on the wall! If they're gonna cheat, they're gonna cheat.

I know some girls see a wedding ring as a challenge.

Based on many post on here, it would not make a difference.

If your husband needs that in order to not cheat, there is a problem.

I have known some trifling hussies that went after married men on purpose. So any sort of sign that a man is married is like catnip to them.  This won't stop anyone from cheating.

I dont think a freaking tattoo on your forehead saying "Im Married" will change the mind of a cheater. lol

As the others have already stated, cheaters will cheat, ring or not.  Plain & simple.  For some people, the ring makes it a bigger challenge, a higher goal.  I've known people who target the ones with the rings simply to see if they can add them to their conquests.

Now, on a more logical note...the only way a ring would leave an imprint of that sort is if the ring was so tight someone couldn't get it off anyway.  If a ring is loose enough to remove from your finger, then it naturally spins on your finger throughout your daily activities.  Even ones with raised stones.  The stones simply keep them from spinning a full 360 degrees.  So, honestly, I look at that picture and have to wonder how real it is.  And if it's real, how tight did the ring have to be to make such an impression.
