What hand does an engagement ring go on
I wore a fake engagement ring for a week while on a trip to Ireland. I was surprised by how often I looked down at my finger and had the urge to show off my ring. The whole experience made me think about the person I want to marry and whether or not I was emotionally ready to get married. I love weddings. In fact, I already have mine planned – actually two. And though I’m not getting married anytime soon and there is no ring on the horizon, I was excited for the opportunity to get a sneak peek at what wearing an engagement ring might be like.

When the police arrived, Mrs. Cira appeared not to understand them, or at least she pretended she didn’t speak English. This wasn’t unusual; the police commonly ran into this problem with Italian immigrants who wanted nothing to do with law enforcement on any level. The most preyed-upon victims were often unwilling to give police any leads, even if they’d personally seen a suspect commit a crime against a loved one. It’s not that Bellefontaine police lacked investigative skills.
