I love my husband. I have never had a doubt about the strength of our relationship. But my confession is that I have never liked my engagement ring. This isn't a monetary issue, I do not care about how much it did or did not cost. I honestly feel that it's tacky.
I have NEVER breathed a word of this to him - or anyone for that matter. For those who care, it's a quad/invisible setting. Since the day he asked me to marry him, I was incredibly happy about the proposal but saddened at the ring that I was going to have to wear for the rest of my life.
Now that many years have passed, I have tried to think of a way to bring this up. He recently said "I wish I had taken more time to pick out your ring, but I know how attached you are to it now"...and I never said anything. I don't want to break his heart.
I would however like to break the legs of the person at the store who convinced him this was an engagement ring instead of a cocktail ring.
I feel like a horrible person for even concerning myself with something so petty.
