My Wedding Ring

Listen to this postI got married ten years ago when I was 37 years old. Some of you would immediately ask why I was so late since the average age for marriage in Kuwait is 25. My answer would be in a future post. I am now happily married to a wonderful wife with three children. I have been through work stress, labor strikes, fire fighting, swim with sharks and raised children. Life is tough but with little patience all problems would pass way and will turn to be a distant memory. I like photograph and love to take pictures of roses and natural sites, but do not like to be photographed. I do not want to look at the pictures after 10-20 years and then say something like “Ooooh …I was so young” or “Looook how funny I was with that hair cut!”. I believe what had happened in the past should stay in the past, and we should live our lives they way we are now. It is like diving for many years then you find yourself in a place that you are happy with. The pictures form our live journey would not make much sense now. The picture on the right side shows my wedding ring which I always wear. I just took it off one day for cleaning and found the dents and beating it took through the years. The engraved artistic decoration had been wiped out through the years. The ring is a good indicator to what had happened in the past 10 years.

    I’m always impressed with the your unique ideas that no one would ever think of it,things we do or see everyday but never process them further than our eye sight.This time I have different opinion than you do Sami.I love looking at my old pictures because they distract my thinking from the daily stressful life even if it was temporary.They remind me of those old days when I use to have day dreaming of being a hero and safe this world from the evils,which is impssible in the real life.It’s some kind of a releive for me at least.At the end this is just my opinion and thanks for sharing your thoughs with us.

  3. I think that you need a new wedding ring @ 47 years old Abu Ahmad !

    • This ring is so dear to me and I will not replace it. Actually I do not take it off my finger, it had a sentimental value that many people do not see. Thank you for suggesting.

  4. So, Do it Abu Ahmad ! hhhhh

    Past is part of your life’s history, you must read it between time and time otherwise you will never know who are you.

    I was going to say poor ring… But poor finger🙂
    Well done. Mine sits in the safe at home. My poor wife has given up hope of me wearing it. Instead I wear a wedding watch.

    • Well Bu Yousef, I think the watch does not count, you have to put the ring in the finger.
