Sheesh...she'll post all kinds of ***** all over this board but do you think she'll respond to a nice, honest question like this? Noooooooooo.

Yes, Katie, spill it! Enquiring minds want to know.

ok ok!!!

As previously stated, flamed, and blown all over the boards.. I have been married previously. I was stupider, younger, niaver( is that a word), and most definantly out of my mind. He is the Jerk of all jerks, and should die a horribly painful death, slowly even.

We had been separated a couple of months when I met Rob. Totally opposite of every guy I have ever dated. Hes tall, skinney ( he doesnt like to be called scrawney ), airforce, drove a little *** trap hot rod, and most definantly the outdoors type. I was used to the tall, built, football player types, in jeans, boots, yes ma'am kind of thing..

Anyways, I was signed up for the yahoo profiles. He read mine, decided he might like to meet me. We emailed back and forth for a while, then I gave him my #. We talked a few times before I got the balls to go and meet him.

I was soo nervous I couldnt stop shaking, had my hands in my pockets or in fist the whole time to keep him from noticing. We met at a local park, walked the track and just talked. I dont like people to touch me, long bad story, so I let him shake my hand. That apparently impressed him, that and I didnt have any kids!! In this town, girls start to breed about 13 and 14 and have multiple children by my age.

Long story short, we just clicked, insta-energy thing. I dont know how to describe it. It was wonderful, I had not laughed or smiled that much in what felt like forever. Before I met him, I was ready to pull ties and run far away.. go to cali, or oregan, or san antonio. I just wanted out of this god forsaken town with all it memories, and everyone knows everyone.. I just wanted to die. He brought me back to life, helped me find my "back bone", and most of all made me want to love again.

So here we are, many tears and nitemare filled nites later, he has helped me chase away most of my nitemares, and has let me heal. I feel like a completley diffenent person. I wouldnt trade him for the world, and would take on the world to protect him. I look back, and I know that all of these things before "US" really did happen, but it feels like it belongs in someone elses past. I plan to keep it that way!

We did get married Jan. 30. We found out a few days before that he might be going TDY. We had already been planning on a summer wedding. So in 2 days, I found my dress, our J.P, the place, got the liscence, and called everyone (except his mom). The morning of the wedding I took the puzzle rings into the jewlers to be sized, and saudered(sp) together. Jewler tells me not to worry he can do it. I get called an hour later, he took them apart and cant put them back together. These rings have 4 bands made of 3 different golds (pink, yellow, and white), we are down to 3&1/2 hours till the wedding!!!!!! I find a jewler that calls in help, costs me almost $200 to get the **** things fixed, and sized before the wedding. My mom bought me my flowers. My family was there, thank god his mother wasnt! It was beautiful, I cried, he laughed, and there was such a feeling of rightness.. was wonderful.. :)

today we find out tdy is canceled hes not going!! WOOT!!!!! no, no honey moon for us yet. maybe in a few months after we have the BIG wedding. Yes, we are going to have another wedding for both our families. I hope my mom kicks his moms ***, filthy little yankee ***** that she is....grrr!!


BTW... imo puzzle rings are way cooler than some cold rock sitting in a ugly *** plain gold band.. mine has no stone in it. Yes, most wedding bands have diamonds now, these came from TURKEY, years before he met me he found them in a little shop while he was stationed there. He bought them and kept them for when he did meet his future wife. I have had more rude people commenting on my "unusual" wedding band. number one asked question is "wheres your diamond" I DONT NEED A FECKING diamond, my engagement ring has one , but I cant wear it with the ring, they dont match. GRRR.. rant off.


but thats it, we are happy, spoiling each other to death. Military life is going to be a big change, but I can take it, as long as he always comes home to me.

Congrats Katie, I hope you and your hubby have a happy ever after! Having just got re-married last July, I know how grateful I was to find that special person to complete me.

Also, being a vet myself, the military benefits are not too shabby either!

Cheers,

I must be out of the loop. My idea of a wedding band is just that -- a band. No stone. I'm not exactly sure what a puzzle ring looks like (though I assume it's several interlocking bands that come apart) but it sounds closer to being a wedding band than something with a big ole rock on it.

For some reason, I had thought that this wedding was sometime in the future (this summer, maybe?). I've been out of the loop.

******** aside, Katie, I give you my warmest wishes. Words fail me for how special it is when you find someone who accepts you as you are, loves you as you are, and helps you become what you could be. I hope that you make him as happy as he clearly makes you.

Such unions are rare in my opinion, and especially sacred.

As for the rude people that mock your ring, f*ck 'em. If the ring is significant to you and him, then that's all that matters. And it does sound rather symbolic from what you've said.

Brightest blessings,
Dal

Woah woah woah, remember who you're talking to here.

She means figuratively Katie.

All **** aside, I hope you and Joe Dirt live happily ever after.

I know how finding a loved one can give you the strength to put up with a ****** town where everybody knows everybody. (Look up Marysville, California sometime, better yet, look up Linda or Olivehurst...bleh)

In a sense, I like the whole eloping idea. But I've always promised myself I'd wait until I was secure in as many facets of my life as possible. I have most of them down now, I'm ready Physically, Mentally, Emotionally, but not quite ready on the Financial part. I did however, recently take out a low interest loan from my job's very own Credit union, ssshhhh Smiley: grin

After all the types of comments that have been posted in past months, you folks have really impressed me. I guess I have a lot more to learn...

Grats, Katie! Rob sounds like a quality guy.

I LOVE tri-color gold jewelry. My wife and I looked for some designs for our bands, but could never find the design that was "perfect" (for us - yours sounds perfect for you). We ended up with white gold bands with yellow gold trim and two types of etching in them that help reflect the light in different ways. No stone... simple, but elegant.

Congratulations. I don't know if you care to do this or not, but where I'm from the trend is to wear the engagement ring on the ring finger, and then when you marry it goes on your OTHER ring finger, so the band can be the only thing on your finger. I think it's more symbolic with only a band, as well, although I am the bling-bling eternity band type.

I'm glad everything went so well and he doesn't have to leave.

I agree with everyone about your ring. Since when is different bad? Especially if it has special meaning for the both of you.

As for you being married before... since when it that a crime? I got married young myself, and while I don't hate the guy it certainly was a mistake. People make mistakes, it's called life. The important thing is you were smart enough to get out of it and wait for Mr. Right. Glad you found him. =)

It's kinda funny that this discussion would come up again because my group of girlfriends and I were talking about "the ring" last week. There's only two of us that aren't married (I'm one- woo hoo!) and we could care less, but it's absolutely amazing to me how women in large part think about the engagement ring.

Me: Well, I think he should get me the ring he wants me to have.

Her: Well, it better be at least a 0.5 carat diamond. At least.

Me: Hmm..I don't think I'd know what a 0.5 carat diamond looked like if it poked me in the eye.

Her: I would give it back. There's no way. I'd rather pay for half of my ring than have a "chip" on my finger for the rest of my life.

Me: /mourn romance.

I mean...jesus...it boggles the mind.

I can't believe I'm going to spend my 6000th post on this, but here goes...

I could have saved you $200, Katie. If you had FedExed them to me or asked on this board I'd have passed along the info needed to get them together.

Step 1- Hold the mass of rings in your palm. Look for the two that make an "S" shape.

Step 2- Take the two "S" shaped rings and place the one with the small unpolished middle on the bottom (this is how you know which one goes where) and hold them together to make a Figure 8.

Step 3- Take one of the other two rings (it doesn't matter which one) and rotate them into the circles of the Figure 8 like a worm going into a hole in the ground. The smooth part of the band (the part which will be on the palm side of your hand when wearing the ring) should be facing up.

Step 4- Do the same with the other ring, so that now you have a Figure 8 with two rings coming out of the circles. If you look at the ring from the side as if you were looking down the length of your finger it will form an "X."

Step 5- Pull the two rings down next to the Figure 8 rings to form the completed puzzle ring.

Voila!

This technique works the same for a 6, 8, 10, even a 16 strand puzzle ring.

I bought several puzzle rings while I was in Saudi for my family and spent much time putting them back together for everyone.

Your welcome.

Yay! 6000 posts!

Ok.

Totem

PS: Congratulations, Katie! May I offer one piece of unsolicited advice? Lay to rest any animosity towards your ex- and focus all that energy-- negative or otherwise --on your new husband. I have a friend who continually brings up her ex- and I always am astounded that she devotes so much of her life towards resenting him when that time, energy, and emotion could be directed in a positive manner towards her new husband.

Think of him as a relic from the past, something to never think about.
