What Do You Know About the 7 Rings of Marriage?

What do you know about The 7 Rings of Marriage?

I recently wrote an article about rubber wedding rings after seeing an NFL player wearing one on HBO’s show Hard Knocks.  The company which sells the wedding rings somehow discovered my article, contacted me, and offered to send me some rings.

A couple weeks later a package arrived.  When I opened the package I was surprised to see they didn’t send a couple, they sent like 12 wedding rings!

Have you worn multiple rings?

Of all the rings they sent, I can only wear a few of them as some are too large and some are too small (my wife wanted to wear the smaller ones to match her man).  Of course, no matter how many fit me, only one wedding ring needs to be worn at a time.  But it has me thinking about the different rings we wear in our marriages.

Just like I have several rubber wedding rings, my marriage has gone through a few wedding rings itself.  Not because I’ve been divorced, or have another wife and family out on the west coast (some people do that you know).  And I’m not talking about physical wedding rings, but different rings, or stages, of marriage.  Some stages have been good, some have been not-so-good, and others have been down right rough!

Become familiar with the 7 rings of marriage

You may have noticed something similar in your marriage.  Maybe you are concerned because you don’t know what phase is coming next.  But if you knew what to expect you could prepare for it, and handle it better.  I was caught off guard by some of the rings of marriage.  My hope is you don’t get caught off guard like me.  Becoming familiar with the 7 rings of marriage will help you.

      Hi Lori,
      I’m sorry for the confusion. There is a link at the bottom of this post, which links to a slideshow that explains each of the “7 Rings.”

      The slideshow is on the site where I originally published the complete article. I’ll be placing the entire article on my site soon. Again, sorry for the confusion.

        Well, you are a gentleman to respond so promptly and politely. I’ve read the article and loved it! Good work. I’ll be sharing this with my Bible Study class.
        God bless you.

          Thank you! I hope it your Bible study class is blessed by it.

          When I place the entire article on my site, I’ll also be putting some information about a project I’m currently working on pertaining to the “7 Rings.”

          Through the project there will be a free web show, a book, and a curriculum/courses. I’ll be looking for feedback from those who’ve read the article. Hopefully you and/or some people will share your feedback.
