I’m an old romantic at heart. I may hate on men on occasion *ahem* but really I’m still longing for my own Disney fairytale, whether mine includes a Prince or a Princess. I’m still a believer in love and marriage and thought I’d wax lyrical about it in this post.
See romance, to me, is about surprise more than anything. It’s about getting something you weren’t expecting just because. And when you’ve been married for a number of years, I imagine, the surprises tend to dwindle because you either run out of things to surprise with or just start to take the old ball and chain for granted.
Let’s picture the scene now; a couple that have been married for a while, they’ve gone past the home made vouchers for a massage, the “saw this and thought of you” present and the (best Generation Game voice coming up) cuddly toy. What next? How about eternity rings? They’re beautiful, timeless and there are so many designs that you’re bound to find one that’s just right.
I did a bit of googling and discovered that in one early advert for the eternity ring the phrase “She married you for richer or poorer. Let her know how it’s going” was used. It made me chuckle though it’s probably not very PC nowadays, but what they hey! Think of just how surprised she’d be to get a beauty like the one on the left for Valentine’s day, especially in these economic times!
Oh how I’d love to wake up tomorrow in a happy marriage, feel under my pillow and find a special little box with that gorgeous ring in it. Imagine the thrill to know that your other half loves you enough to skip the pub drinks, or refrain from buying that TV box set, to save up enough to treat you to something that will last a lifetime, like your love.
Oh *sigh* it’d just be too romantic for words wouldn’t it.
