Read This Wife's Powerful Response To 'You Should Upgrade Your Tiny Wedding Ring'

April 11, 2016

A friend of Rachel Pedersen told her, "You should upgrade your tiny wedding ring so people know how successful you are!"

She didn't mean any harm by the comment, but the more Rachel thought about it, the more troubled she felt.

So Rachel wrote a public message about what that "tiny" ring actually represents...

Yes, I know that my wedding ring is small.

Friends and family often ask me when I'm going to have it "upgraded".... After all, it doesn't represent the level of success we are achieving.

I've even had one person say "you could wear a bigger ring for important events, so people don't think you're not successful."

Wait a minute.... Since when did the size of someone's ring become an indication of success?!

For me, the ring is SO much more.

My ring symbolizes a whirlwind, storybook, "make you sick" love story.... It reminds me of how my husband and I met and fell at in love in one night at a Perkin's diner.

He worked as a window washer, and I was a single mother.

One short week later, and we professed our love to one another, him leading the conversation.

We couldn't stop dreaming of our future, so excited to have a baby, buy a house, and fall asleep together every night.

We couldn't wait for the future. So we didn't.

13 days after meeting, we eloped. I didn't even THINK about a ring until my husband surprised me before the ceremony. He drained his savings to gift me with a small token of his love.

I say small, only because it pales in comparison with how big his love is, even now, after years of marriage.

That, my friends, is success to me.
