I waited a long time to write about this subject, thought I can win at the end but it seems that I’m losing or have already lost. The thing is, ever since I got married I wanted to change this thing with Kuwaiti men & let my husband be one of those unique ones but i failed. I wanted him to wear his wedding ring all the time, whenever we go out, it has to be on his finger. He only wore it when we first got married (melcha time), then we traveled to our honeymoon & he surprised me when he wore it to the airport & kept wearing it everytime we went out in Malaysia, when I myself didn’t take my wedding ring with me coz if it got lost i’d lose my mind.
BUT when we got back home, he started neglecting it, keeping the ring on the dresser or by his bed-side table. I keep reminding him & he starts saying “it’s huge, big, it’s annoying me”. Many times I asked him to take it & make it smaller but I think I was speaking to myself. One of our conversations regarding this subject went like this;
Swera: Why you’re not wearing your wedding ring?
M: I told you, it’s big.
Swera: take it to soug almubarkeya & make it smaller.
Swera: This is our love bondage, this is how you show the world that we are married, that you’re mine & I’m yours . . . blah blah blah.
M: Swerty we don’t have to show the world anything, you know that I love you & our bondage is between us & in our hearts . . . blah blah blah.
& that’s how he silences me. After he says that sentence, I really dunno what to say but to be a lil bit upset (amed el booz) & then he promises to take it & and make it smaller. 6 months now & he still didn’t take it. Do I keep fighting for this cause or do I surrender? For ,e, the wedding ring is a must. Many men from other nationalities are wearing it all the time from different ages & religions. Leash (why) our men in Kuwait don’t?! There are a minority who wear it but trust me you can count those men with your fingers. Probably, those men are not in love with their wives, don’t care about them but still they’re wearing the ring.
Kuwaiti men, what is it with you & the wedding ring?!
