Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
Fuck every jerk out there.

You did what was necessary for your family's survival. When ... I have to do the same. I will do without thinking twice. (Your hubby may be pissed mine would probably too) but you have a big beautiful family and he will understand.

A ring is just a ring.

Surviving is #1.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 9143700


agreed

the ring is just a symbol of you two being one-but i'm sorry you felt it had to go , that's very tough

you should have talked to him first though
explained your rationale

he did give it to you and i'm sure he'll be saddened too
but it is just 'stuff' at the end of the day

be brave

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
Poster offers a fairly cogent post to which , immediately, she gets two pathetic responses.

I can never comprehend how many no heart , stupid replies see the light of day.

Their replies have no relationship to much of anything but their own nasty dispositions.

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
i feel for you, BD. i sold all my goods long ago. even my rings. your husband will understand and as you said, you can buy new rings. the way the world is going right now, it may matter very little in the end. i know that isn't very soothing, but sometimes you do what must be done.hugs

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
Ok, let me get this straight.. you work 40hrs, and your hubby works 60?

At $8hr (just throwing a figure out), that is $960wk gross? How in the H**L can you not live on that?? With no CC, no car payment? What the frick do you eat, gold plated steaks??

And if your husband works someplace that gives bonuses, that means he defintately makes more than $8hr, so this thread is complete BS.

I know a lot of people who live, raise a family of 5+, for under $500wk, and that is with $0 gov. assistance, no "bonuses," and no CC's, ,and they still afford to spend at holidays.

I don't get people noawadays.. OMG, my family could live like kings on $900wk gross.. I lived like a king on $250wk, and that was 2yrs ago..

Not everyone lives in the sticks, where houses are a nickel.

Here in L.A., $500 a week would barely get you out of high-crime areas, which is probably OP's main problem. Location. It costs money to live near decent people.

Guess we should all move to the sticks, so we won't stay awake all night due to hunger pains after paying the rent...

You said you sold it, then you said you pawned it, which is it?
If you sold it, its gone. If you pawned it you can get it back at some point with high interest paid along the way.

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
Down to $50 in the account today my husband works 60 hour weeks, and was told yesterday that there will be no bonuses this year, I work 40, we have four children no credit cards and no car payments. Our house payment is quite low and live a very no frills lifestyle. Food is getting extremely expensive, holidays are here, what am I to do when I have already sold everything worth anything that own. I took the initiative and pawned my wedding band today without my husbands knowledge. I hope he will understand.
 Quoting: BlackDahlia


I can say this to you..If he loves you and knows you did it for the family all will be alright. I know so many people tat are hurting and I also know that it will soon stop..We are at the very critical point of the thin membrane breaking, I felt a lot of worry and pain from your post..You have done enough and you have walked the line and you deserve better and so does the world..It is people like you that sacrifice and pay the cost of being alive and just wanting freedom from Evil governments and evil people..The average prisoner gets about 3,500 every month. Checks the facts on SSA or SSI children with disability's..shame on them. This world is a lie and there is a power that will no longer allow this to happen.

This world can only be fixed by this last finale push we call the war for humanity's souls. People on GLP think a lot of are crazy but we are not..They have been in my life since three. The truth is there will be this membrane breaking and then we will be free. We are the dreamers, We are the meek of heart, we are the children of Light and truth and together we are strong. I am the type of person that sees most;y all Black and white on all matters. I SHALL FINISH THE GAME.

You sold your wedding band to buy what? a turkey and some cheese dip? Or you sold it to buy some junk toys made in china or your mom something off shopnbc? Go to hell.

um, $5 an hour at 100 hours is actually $500 a week... (100 hours a week between the two of them)

I am just saying I know what my husband makes, we have VERY little debt, no car payment and we are a family of 5. My housepayment is ridiculous, electric is 300-400 A MONTH, I am always trying to cut stuff out just to make ends meet.

OP I'm so sorry you had to do this :0( I give you a ton of credit and you should be proud of yourself. You just showed your family and marriage means more than a ring. The system is setup to make it easier for you to leave under these types of circumstances and you chose your husband and family!!!

I'm honored to know you!

Re: Had to sell my wedding ring today
Sounds like one of you doesn't know how to handle money. My ex-wife would go out and spend all day while I was at work, and we were in debt and I made almost $200K with one child. Spend, spend, spend...that's all that Americans do it seems. Since the divorce, I've been able to save up a nice amount, even though she's killing me with the alimony and child support.

 Quoting: iamlizzyb


At $8 per hour 40 hour for both would be $320 each, plus 20 hours ot for hubby at $12 per hour $240...that would total $880 per week before taxes. With deductions you should be at around $600 per week take home for both combined.

I hate to break it to you, $600 a week is nothing for a family to try and live off of. It would be hard, but not to the point of selling/pawning a wedding ring?

I agree, hubby makes about $1000 per week and wife around $600 and they're crackheads and alcoholics, lol...OR....

She's just your everyday standard issue ATTENTION WHORE, lol!

Be very careful or you'll spend it before you know what happened and you'll be right back where you started without a ring.
