A few years ago my dad lost his wedding ring at work, It fell down a drain. After that he felt so bad he NEVER took it off so he would never lose it again. Last year he had a stroke, they told him he had to take his wedding ring off for X-rays and he said he couldn't ... Not because he didn't want to but because he hadn't taken it off in so long his finger was growing around it. Needless to say they had to cut it off. My mom bought him a new one. Still he NEVER takes it off.
