Tell Me About It: Mother keeps trying to bestow daughter's wedding rings

posted: 01/29/2015 1:46 a.m. Discuss

DEAR CAROLYN: My mother gave me her old wedding rings when I married my first husband. I wore them until he died, and for some time after. I am now remarried, and the rings are put away. Twice now my mother has offered these rings to other family members who are planning weddings. The first time she did it, I said no, that the rings still meant a lot to me. She recently called and asked if I would give them to my niece who just announced her engagement. Again, I said no. I guess she thinks the rings are still hers to give.

I know you will know if anyone does.
