"I told my wife, maybe it fell off because i lost some weight since we got married, but then she reminded me that the same thing almost happened on our honeymoon.Maybe it's time to have it adjusted,"He said, placing the ring back on his finger and giving his hand a few shakes to make sure it stayed there.
