An American company thinks it’s found a sure-fire way to prevent infidelity in marriage; a wedding ring that ‘brands’ the wearer with the words ‘I’m married’ on their finger.
The ring, created by TheCheeky.com, isn’t a permanent or fool-proof solution, but it uses reverse engraving, so that the words ‘I’m married’ are, essentially, embossed into the wearer’s finger for a short time.
Of course, it’s a silly idea, especially since the words will probably fade after about half an hour, giving the wearer plenty of time to carry out their, erm, “plans” and, frankly, if you need to start your married life with this sort of ring, well, it’s probably well and truly time to re-examine your relationship!
Not to mention the fact that the entire premise of the ring is to act as a red flag to innocent third-parties, some of whom, well, won’t care that your guy or gal is hitched.
The ring’s creator says on the product description page, “With Arnold, Tiger and two timing IMF guy in mind, we have created this wedding ring for people intent on cheating.
“The negative engraving on the inside means that when you are in the ‘Club’ and an attractive woman…or man comes along to chat, slipping your wedding ring off is not an option.”
The anti-cheating ring costs about $550 and is made from strengthened titanium.
What do you think? Will a ring that ‘brands’ its wearer stop someone from cheating or is it just a gimmick?
