Wedding rings

[Pascal sent this picture.]

What an excellent design idea.

Indeed, an excellent design ...

It reminds me on an old tantric technique I've heard about: Before a couple was allowed to be together, their wrists were tied up (left wrist of the one to the right wrist of the other), and they had to be together in this intimate way for 7 days - if after this week they wanted still to be together, they were allowed to be married ...

i wouldn't like to wear a different ring than my wife. i think it spoils the sense of unity (unless they are screwed- unpractical) and equality. furthermore when you are married (in most cases many years before) the physical drive is being rewarded and other stronger and more elaborate things tend to bond couples together. from this point of view these rings look vulgar.
p.s. they are also ugly - but this can change

Grigoris,
regarding that possibility of change, we're open to your suggestions.
Well, at least the ring on the right is open! :-)

I'm not even sure if these are anything more than a joke (got it by email from a friend, no details). But hey, matching rings are just as adequate as identical ones, I feel. Remember the classic (almost cliché) love medallions, with each of the lovers wearing one of the "broken" halves.

As for that tantric technique... sure, in misogynous Lebanon, people would immediately approve: "If they can stand being constantly together every second for a week, they're ready to get married."
But me, I think being tied up to almost any girl for a week, even without initial love, after that she would have a powerful incentive to marry me! Blink-blink, nudge-nudge...
My legendary modesty forbids me from saying more. ;-)
