Yes. We went & got our Pam Anderson & Tommy Lee on. And I don't mean we made a sex tape on a boat. I mean we got tattoos on our ring fingers. And here's why:
Jacob & I have both been through divorces. We both went through years in marriages that didn't work out. So we both took our marriage vows this time around quite seriously. That's not to say that we didn't the first time, but neither of us went into our second marriage lightly.
Once upon a time, marrying someone was as serious a commitment as tattooing yourself. Marriage was taken that seriously. You committed & dedicated yourself to someone so ardently that leaving was never a choice. That is how Jacob & I entered our marriage. Knowing that committing again meant forever. For life.
I can almost guarantee that at some point in our married lives that one...or both of us will want out. There is no such thing as a perfect marriage. We are all works in progress, therefore our marriages are. There will be ups & there will be downs. But what makes this time around different is that we are bonded deeply by our choice to fight through any obstacle that comes our way.
I genuinely believe I have found my soul mate in Jacob. He is my best friend, my biggest supporter & cheerleader. My worst enemy. My most honest critic. He is quite literally my everything.
Jacob & I are both heavily tattooed, so getting each others' initials on our ring fingers just felt right. I had no second guesses about it. No question. I belong to his soul & he belongs to mine.
You can call me crazy, but in the end this was our choice. And it felt right for us.
What do you think about spousal or ring tattoos? Would you ever do it for/with your husband/wife? Let me know your thoughts on this topic in the comments.
