Ring needs a
Warning label:
Marital bliss is never guaranteed.

Mary said...

I doubt a ring with that label would be a best seller. LOL.

Brian Miller said...

ha. true that...its much more than a ring and promise...

Kerry O'Connor said...

Oh this is a splendid response, Mary, so witty and fits the form perfectly.

Sherry Blue Sky said...

I'll second that.....you packed so much in a few short lines.

Fireblossom said...

Ain't THAT the truth! Well done!

Christine said...

Love this, it's my second visit today.

Oh that is soooo true!

Hannah said...

Such a complete thought...you did great with this challenge, Mary!!

Very smart poem.

You nailed this! Nice job.

Such a wise message in 20 syllables! :-)

Your title is awesome. :)

Well Done and I love the truth and the wit of your words ;D

That how I've always felt about. Why I've never made an "honest woman" of anyone.

Madeleine Begun Kane said...

LOL! The reverse is true too. The lack of a wedding ring doesn't guaranty a lack of wedded bliss.

I'm happily married, but no longer have a wedding or an engagement ring:

Long story involving a mugging.

I'd rather have the great marriage than the rings. :)

That's not to say that bought wouldn't be nice. :)
