Do you ever look at a particularly strange product and wonder who pitched it in a boardroom — and what team of brand executives thought it was a good idea?
A new "anti-cheating" titanium wedding band, sold for $550 on TheCheeky.com, has the words “I’m Married” carved on the inside. The site promises that the engraving will imprint the wearer with the phrase, thus preventing them from simply taking off their wedding band and cheating. This ring has caused quite a buzz around the Interwebs, which is no surprise, because it raises quite a few questions:
Basically, this item would be purchased under the assumption that its wearer was going to be unfaithful at some point, which really should be a deal breaker at the start. Furthermore, we’re guessing that men won’t be too keen to slip this on their fingers, because it brands them as potential cheaters. And we say “men” only because there doesn’t appear to be a women’s version at all.
