Love Knot Ring Meaning

Helen asks…

My boyfriend and I have decided to take the next step in our relationship, to tie the knot! I need advice…?

Like I said, we’ve been talking about making the “final commitment” to eachother… We do live together, and have been for almost 2 years now… so yes, the next step is marriage. Anyway, I’ve talked him into going ring shopping so we can figure out what I like. After shopping around, and definitley searching for the best deals, we finally found a FANTASTIC deal at a local jeweler here in town that is actually good friends with my mom. The ring is better than anything I’d expect and not what I origionally wanted, but as soon as it was on my finger I FELL IN LOVE! It’s not even anything extravagant… it’s a round 1/2 ct solitaire with a very pretty .35 ct wrap- both equaling right around $2,000… BUT! these are “previously loved” peices and since the owner is close to my mom, we are getting 50% off both! Plus they are giving us an extension on the pay-off time limit!
In my heart I absolutely couldn’t pass this up and I know we wouldn’t come across a better deal… so I talked my boyfriend into putting it on lay-away. This wasn’t easy because he is very traditional in the sense where he thinks the “right way” is for the guy to get a ring and surprise the girl. But, I believe that in this day-in-age it’s perfectly ok to do what WORKS FOR YOU. And that’s why I offered to put a little bit of my money towards the rings, just in the beginning so they will hold it for us (my b/f wouldn’t be able to pay anything towards them until March) He has told me that his main concern is that when he gives me the ring he wants it to be a surprise… and I believe it will be because I wont know when he pays it off… I’m just making a few payments in the beginning to assure that it’s being held for us.

So anyway, I guess what I need advice on is: am I right about this being ok to do this way? I guess I just need reasurance that it’s ok to not be “traditional”…

LoveKnots answers:

Sure, it’s ok. A woman has the right to want a ring she loves, and even when it’s done traditionally, most grooms use the ring as part of the “surprise” factor and understand that they need to make sure their fiancee loves the ring itself.

Just make sure this isn’t part of a larger issue. You say in this age, it’s ok to do what “works for you”, and that’s mostly true, but the fact that you’re here asking about it might mean it doesn’t work quite as well for your fiance, or he has some issue with it. In that case, it’s essential that you talk to him about it and make sure he understands where you’re coming from. This is more important than the ring.

Chris asks…

Whats the longest engagement you’ve ever heard of?

Ive been with my live in boyfriend for 5 years. Im so in love with him. And vice versa. With all the ups and downs with marriages……we just decided at a young age, we would wait it off a while until we tied the knot.

Also, he’s mentioned that he wants to buy me a very pricey ring, and would like to have a small classy wedding.

With myself, I would just like to lose some weight (life long dream!) and have wanted to be financially/professionally more successful.

Well, we are doing excellent as far as trust, communication, all aspects of what a wonderful marriage would contain. My friend told me tonight, what are you waiting for? To be a size 2, and to have some fancy rock? It really hit me. It was a wake up call I guess you could say. She is a wonderful best friend of so many years who is a mother/is married.

My boyfriend and I are in our mid 20′s. Someone told me a while back, “HUN, why dont you two just PICK A DATE already!” So is 2010 TOO far off?

LoveKnots answers:

Lol nice name…

What does it mean?

Lizzie asks…

Info needed on Stepfanie Kramer.?

Is there anybody that has everything she a has done on televison and video since 1974. I mean everything!
Bricha2, you certainly made an honor role effort to help me. It is appreciated greatly. You will be most likely the winner unless someone comes up with one more item. The IMDB does not provide it because it is hard to find. Stepfanie Kramer did a very naughty movie(S) which I have plenty of proof of. Despite not having found it, as forementioned you will get the
points. I have no idea why it is not listed.

Mark asks…

Help with twelfth night monologue??

Hello! I am in drama class and we had to choose a shakespeare monologue. I chose this one from Twelfth Night and am a little confused. and i am not sure what the mood of the piece is. I understand the plot
so: 1. i left no ring with her (Was viola supposed to give her a ring?
2. None of my lord’s ring? Why he sent her none (is this snobbish is viola happy? HELP)
Thanks
Here is the monologue:
VIOLA: I left no ring with her. What means this lady?
Fortune forbid my outside have not charmed her.
She made good view of me; indeed, so much
That, as methought, her eyes had lost her tongue,
For she did speak in starts distractedly.
She loves me sure; the cunning of her passion
Invites me in this churlish messenger.
None of my lord’s ring? Why, he sent her none.
I am the man. If it be so, as ’tis,
Poor lady, she were better love a dream.
Disguise, I see thou art a wickedness
Wherein the pregnant enemy does much.
How easy is it for the proper false
In women’s waxen hearts to set their forms!
Alas, our frailty is the cause, not we,
For such as we are made of, such we be.
How will this fadge? My master loves her dearly;
And I (poor monster) fond as much on him;
And she (mistaken) seems to dote on me.
What will become of this? As I am man,
My state is desperate for my master’s love.
As I am woman (now alas the day!),
What thriftless sighs shall poor Olivia breathe?
O Time, thou must untangle this, not I;
It is too hard a knot for me t’ untie.

LoveKnots answers:

Women used to give men gifts as a “rememberance.” Olivia sends Cesario/Viola her ring as a gift of this kind, only has the messenger pretend that it’s Viola’s ring to be discreet. So “I left no ring with her” is true, and is also troublesome because Viola knows what it means when a woman gives a man this kind of token of affection. Then, “None of my lord’s ring?” is Viola asking the messenger if he meant this was the ring of or for Orsiono, who sent her there to woo Oliva. But it isn’t!

im trying to memorize this for an audition fir a play. What does this mean? I don’t get it and it says its for a woman but it sorta doesnt sound like it

LoveKnots answers:

You MUST read the play if you are using as an audition piece. However, long story short, Viola is dressed as a man and Olivia has become infatuated with her, thinking Viola is a man. Viola is in love with the Duke (who also thinks she’s a man). The Duke is in love with Olivia, who doesn’t love him. Confused yet? :)

Olivia sent her servant after Viola with a ring she said Viola left (which she didn’t). Viola is realizing here that her disguise has caused Olivia to fall in love with her, and is lamenting how this love triangle has come about and what will happen. It’s comic, though, so Viola is seeing the absurdity of the situation.

Michael asks…

can someone please proofread my short story and tell me what you think?

The Call
Mark Randall neatly folded his dingy, orange jumpsuit, the one he’d sported everyday for nearly thirteen years, and placed it beside him on the lumpy mattress. He stared at the dusty suit now in his hands. His fingers traced the embroidered monogram his wife stitched on the breast pocket so long ago. Tears began to swell in his eyes as he remembered the life he once had, the life he was meant to have. Mark recoiled from the thought. Now wasn’t the time for mourning. He wasn’t about to give them the satisfaction of that.
The suit engulfed his slender body. It was hard to imagine it ever fitting. Without the aid of a mirror, knotting his silk tie proved to be more of a challenge than he’d anticipated. Worn out from the task, his frail body collapsed back onto the bed. He peered out his cell through the bars that separated him from the rest of the world. The sunlight beamed in through the open window adjacent to the bed informing him of the time; twelve o’clock. It wouldn’t be much longer before they came.
It surprised Mark that despite everything, all the injustice and cruelty he’d endured, that he still had faith in the human race. He really had no reason. They were the ones who sentenced an innocent man to death. To make themselves feel better they allowed him to consume a meal of his liking. As if some lobster would set things straight, he thought sarcastically.
Startled by the screeching of sneakers against concrete, he instinctively rose to his feet and waited for further instruction as the guards fumbled with the keys. He was all too familiar with the routine having been through it countless times. The stocky man entered the room and grabbed hold of Mark. In one swift motion the second guard clicked the metal handcuffs into place. It was time.
As the three men made their way down the narrow corridor, Mark felt the eyes of the other inmates flash towards him and quickly dart away as they realized the true nature of this midday stroll. This wasn’t new to him, by any means. He knew exactly what was coming, but he couldn’t help feeling petrified at the thought.
The execution chamber was blindingly white with an overpowering stench of chemicals that seared his nostril hairs. With little effort, the two guards secured him to the gurney in the center of the room. One by one the restraints were tightened around his ankles, torso, and wrists. Not even Houdini, himself, stood a chance. He felt two sharp jabs in both forearms where the IV tubes were to be inserted. His body tensed up as he waited, crippled in fear, for the guards to finish the job.
“Any last words, Mr. Randall?” the stocky man asked, needle in hand.
Mark shook his head. He had nothing left to say.
“Still claiming your innocence as always,” he snidely added and injected the first dose of the drug cocktail.
Instantly it took affect, paralyzing his body. No time was wasted and the second dose, a muscle relaxant, was administered. For a brief moment he believed this would be a painless death, and then it hit him. His lungs collapsed, halting his breathing. He gasped for air unsuccessfully. The last concoction burned its way through his veins. The lethal liquid pierced his heart with excruciating accuracy, exploding in his chest. His eyes went blank and any trace of life vanished.
The telephone rang. A look of horror came across the guards’ faces as they realized their mistake.

I loved it! Keep it up!

Daniel asks…

What can I do? I mean, honestly, I’m in shambles.?

My girlfriend of 2 years left me a few nights ago after a fight we had had. Well, there was a fight, then there was making up, then she left. She said that she needed time to think about things, get her head on straight, and see if this is what she really wanted. Her basis for leaving was mainly based on 2 things: The fact that I’ve been out of work, and my temper. On the work part, I completely understand. I’ve been in a rut for a few months being unemployed but to be perfectly honest, it’s really hard to get a job around here. When it comes to my temper, I agree too. The thing is, and she even said this, it was NEVER directed at her. She just said, “it scares me, even though it’s not directed at me. When you get angry it’s like nothing exists but you and the thing you’re angry at.”

I love this woman with every thread of my being. She’s the reason I wake up in the morning, and now she’s the reason that I can’t sleep. I never knew that I was hurting her so bad.

The real question lies here: How will I ever be able to tell her? I’ve called so many times, left so many voice-mails, left so many text messages, and nothing. Now, her mother sends me threatening text messages out of nowhere, like it’s any of her business, telling me to leave her alone and that she’s scared like I’m some kind of stalker or something. I don’t know. I have to let her know how I feel and it seems so out of reach now. I feel like I’ve lost everything. One of the worst parts is, I had the ring in my pocket the day she left me… I planned on spending the rest of my life with her. Now it seems I have the rest of my life to spend wondering what I did wrong.

My emotional pain has turned into physical pain. I can’t sleep, I barely eat, and I’ll even admit… I’ve cried hysterically for hours on end (manly, right?). I don’t know what to do, and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
EDIT: I don’t think I clarified well enough on the calling and voicemail parts. In the past week I would say I’ve called 10 times, left 2 voice-mails, and 5 or 6 texts. I’ve never showed up at her house. I’ve never showed up at her work. The scared part makes no sense in any form of the word. I forgot to add the history between me and her mother. She’s hated me since day 1 because I stole her daughter from her ex whom her mother absolutely adored. On the anger issue, it’s nothing that’s in need of professional help, it’s the type of anger that comes from a blue collar American with conservative southern roots, not puppy killing Charles Manson anger.

LoveKnots answers:

Look, the very first thing you can do is enroll in anger management class. My husband has a very bad temper as well so I understand where she is coming from. You may not direct the anger at her but the fact that you lose control when your angry is what scares her. I adore my husband but if he can’t get control of his temper, I will leave as she did. Men are much stronger than women and she knows what you are capable of and fears that if she does something wrong in the future (and eventually she will)that you will redirect your anger towards her. My husband has never hit me but he has thrown things that have hit me. He once was so angry(not at me) that he threw a stick, it hit my leg so hard, I had a knot for a month and it was very painful. I try to understand his anger but I can’t sacrifice myself or my children for him. About the job thing(I am being serious)McDonalds is always hiring. I know you probably don’t want to work there but she would respect you more if she just knew you were making an effort. Give her some room to think and just start working on you own issues and she will probably come back. Just pray about it and ask God do walk you through it.

Linda asks…

I need a 1-2 minute monologue ASAP?

I am a 23 year old African American female and I have a showcase coming up in a month. I need a dramatic presentation that is age appropriate for my age, geared to show my acting talent and must be in good taste in subject matter and not include tobacco, alcohol/drugs, foul language or strong sexual overtones. The monologue has to be less that 2 minutes and I have no idea were to start. Please let me know.

LoveKnots answers:

Well this is my favorite monolouge to do it’s from Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” if your not familiar with the play here’s a quick overview: Viola and her twin brother Sebastian are lost at sea; they end up in Ilyria where Viola believes Sebastian is dead so she dresses up as “Cesario” and becomes a servant to the Duke Orsino. He is in love with a rich countess, Olivia. He sends Cesario to woo Olivia but she ends up falling in love with “Cesario”. Viola ends up falling in love with Orsino and he falls for her in the end when he learns she is a woman and Olivia mistakes Sebastian for Cesario and asks him to marry her. Its a very twisted play.

Any way the monologue is Olivia’s to Cesario; she is begging him to love her. Here it is

“Oh, what a deal of scorn looks beautiful
in the contempt and anger of his lip
a murderous guilt shows not its self more soon
than love would seem hid, loves night is noon
Cesario, by the roses of the spring
by maidhood, honor truth and everything.
I love thee so that maugre all thy pride
nor wit nor reason ca my passion hide
Do not extort thy reasons from thy clause
for that I woo thou therefore hast no cause
but rather reason thus with reason fetter
love sought is good but given unsought better!”

heres a little better/longer one its Viola’s. Olivia has just given her a ring and she now realizes that she loves Orsino and Olivia loves her…its a great one.

“I left no ring with her: what means this lady?
Fortune forbid my outside have not charm’d her!
She made good veiw of me; indeed, so much,
That sure methought her eyes had lost her tongue,
For she did speak in starts distracedly
She loves me, sure; the cunning of her passion
Invites me in this chulish messenger,
None of my lord’s ring! Why he sent her none,
I am the man! If it be so, as ’tis,
Poor lady, she were better love a dream,
Disguise, I see, thou art wickedness
Wherein the pregnant enemy does much.
How easy is it for the proper-false
In women’s waxen hearts to set their forms!
Alas, our frailty is the cause, not we!
For such as we are made of,such we be,
How will this fadge? My master loves her dearly;
And I,poor monster, fond as much on him;
And she, mistaken, seems to dote on me,
What will become of this? As I am man,
My state desperate for my master’s love;
As I am woman,–now alas the day!–
What thriftless sighs shall poor Olivia breathe!
O time! Thou must untangle this,not I;
It is too hard a knot for me to untie!”

Good Luck!

George asks…

I need help! Advice on marriage?

Okay. I am young, getting ready to graduate HS. I am married in God’s eyes to the man I am with now. He is the same age as me and has been my best friend for a long time, and we’ve been together for a while before we tied the knot. We promised forever no matter what, and we both keep our promises. Three months ago he had moved away, a few thousand miles. We will be physically apart for about a year an a half, maybe two. After that we planned to move to Michigan for a few years… He proposed with an actual ring in November…
We have strict rules dealing with the opposite sex member in order to not create problems or jealousy. Recently he was working and a stranger walked up to him and started flirting. He offered her a hug and before he could explain he rule she jumped on him, but he didnt push her off. He said he liked it because he hasnt had any physical affection since he left.Said he felt bad for her, because he didnt want her to feel rejected. Whatever…A day after he told me that he decided to tell me he wasnt sure if he was ready to be married. He said that he wasnt sure that I was the one. He said “What if a girl I see walking around, is supposed to be the one?” I told him that the door was open if he wanted to leave. But that if he feels he should go see other people then I should be able to as well. He said that he wanted to venture, time to look around and see if Im ACTUALLY the one for him, but at the same time he loves me and he wasnt sure if he could leave me, because I meant so much… I told him I wasnt exactly ready either, that we were young; but I had promised and I already KNEW. That I DIDNT doubt us. He agreed to stay, we said our vows under God.,. But after that talk several days later I still felt confused as to what he ACTUALLY wanted. I told him Im not here to pressure him. He said he really DOES love me…I called him and asked him to explain himself.And he told me, fr sure that hes staying. Because No one has ever made him feel as happy as he is now, or knows and loves him; all of him so much. Was my confusion necessary? He is coming over next week, should I talk to him face to face about it again; then?

LoveKnots answers:

If he means forever, he will not cheat, he will not question it. Forever is forever, true love isn’t determined by how far away you live, he will not touch anyone if he loves you. Too many people are weak, giving in to lust. If he wants you and you want him, then what is two years when you have the rest of your lives to be together?
