After been married for so long, we finally went shopping for our wedding rings. We actually went back and forth many times before we finally made our purchase. First, it was on a Sunday...Nothing opens on Sunday! Then, the store was closing. (Most of stores close at 7 p.m. Don't they know there are people who are 24-7 shoppers!!) And, we went on a Saturday...tried on many sets and couldn't make up our mind.... white gold or yellow gold...diamonds or no diamonds. So, we left and went looking around other stores.
Decisions and decisions--
A couple weeks later, we finally came to a conclusion--white gold and square instead of round. The woman's has small diamonds all around it and the man's has a skinny line carved around it. It is simple and different.
One of the girls (staff) started fitting our finger sizes. Josh's was easy...didn't need to be resized. The girl then asked me tired on size 51, 50, 49, 48...too small so she said, size 49 is good and asked me how I feel. I said, "It feels fine (lift up my finger at the same time) but how come my finger is turning purple?" The staff was in shock and asked anther girl to help with size and translations, at the same time, taking the size 49 off my finger. "The SIZE does MATTER!!" Then they asked when is our wedding day so they can make the rings in time for the day. We looked at each other and them, and said "we are already married." Two of them were like...wow, what an interesting weird couple! Shopping for wedding rings after married!!
I learned later on that German required to have wedding rings on the wedding day.
