On Ask a Jeweler: Shady Platinum, Sizing Up Your Rings, and the Case For Sapphires

@OhMarie I don't, but that's because our "engagement rings" were really just the test rings that my dad made for our real wedding rings. Our rings are pretty wide, and wearing both would not only look weird but keep me from bending that finger! I wear my wedding ring 90% of the time, becasue I like it, I am still quite young to be married (hooray getting married irresponsibly young- we have been very lucky) and it's nice to not have to deal with the random date request, and I love that my father made it. My husband did wear the "engagement" version until a few weeks ago when he lost it- the fit wasn't as good as the real one- so we'll probably have my dad re-size his.

On The First Holiday Negotiating In-Law (or Almost-In-Law) Needs and Wants

@teenie oh man you and I are the same person! My husband's family does 13 fishes though- one for each of the apostles+Jesus. fiiiish. And, my parents love coming over to his family's get togethers sometimes, they don't do it other times. Does my mom probably have freakouts about this? Yes. Do I involve myself? No.
