Qalo Wedding Rings For Active People

Qalo Wedding Ring

Qalo Wedding Ring

My husband is a firefighter paramedic who is also very active during his time off. He used to worry about losing, getting it caught up on a scene or damaging his wedding ring, so would often not wear it at all. This drove me absolutely batty, since I have seen so many women hitting on him in uniform when they didn’t see that I was right behind him and know it probably happens regularly. I told him if he were wearing a ring, at least he’d know they weren’t the classy kind of lady trying to flirt with him. 🙂 Soooo….we went searching for a safe alternative to make both of us happy. Enter the awesome Qalo ring you see modeled by my handsome hubby’s hand in the feature photo!! 🙂

The Qalo rings were developed by a group of very active married men who wanted to honor their marriages by wearing a symbol of their status, but didn’t want a conventional ring getting in the way. These rings are perfect for firefighters, police, construction workers, soldiers, mechanics, rock climbers, gym rats, athletes, and anyone else who may find their actual wedding ring a hazard or a nuisance while doing the things they normally do. They’re inexpensive enough that if they do get damaged, it’s not that big of a deal to just replace them. My husband is on his second ring now, because he lost his old one on a fire scene. If that had been his real ring we said our vows with, we would have been heart broken, but we just ordered another one. Happy wife, happy husband, happy wallet!

There is a great deal I can share with my readers on these amazing rings! If you click my referral link, you will get $5 off of the first order (and I get a $5 credit, so again….we’re both happy! 😉 ). These rings are generally just $15.99 for women and $19.99 for men, so that makes for a very inexpensive wedding band for the hands on committed types among us. 🙂 They come in a variety of colors- including thing red line or thing blue line for firefighters and police officers- but my husband prefers the black because he feels it looks most like a regular wedding ring at a glance.

For the referral link with your $5 credit, please go to my Facebook page, where you can send me a message requesting a referral sent to your email or see the Facebook referral post also published this morning at:

Has anyone else been on the search for a product like this? Have you had the wish that your spouse would wear a ring, but they don’t want to due to the work and recreational activities they engage in? Think this could solve your issue like it has ours? I hope this helps someone out! It was a major annoyance for me until we found something that worked for both of us. 🙂

Merry Firefighter’s Family Christmas!

When you marry someone in public safety, one of the quickest thing you need to learn is flexibility.

Holidays, anniversaries and birthdays may be celebrated on completely different days than they actually fall on, because someone in public safety has shifts that fall when they fall, regardless of the special days they might fall upon, and their services are necessary 365 days a year. If you can’t handle that, don’t marry someone in that field of work. It is the least of my gripes with being married to someone in public safety, honestly, because I wasn’t raised with holidays being a big deal (we didn’t celebrate Christmas at all), but it’s a huge issue for a lot of families.

In my case, my husband is a firefighter paramedic. We often have ornaments like this Firefighters Courage Under Fire Christmas Ornament
on our tree, read our children this kind of book Firefighter’s Night Before Christmas, and you’re likely to get something like this Firemen to the Rescue Christmas Cards from us in the mail. He works 24 hour shifts, often pulling 48s between two different fire departments. This year he won’t be home from a 48 hour shift until probably 10am Christmas Eve, and has to be back early Christmas morning, so those days just don’t work for us to celebrate Christmas on. Our Christmas is officially December 26, when he actually can get home early enough to enjoy the sleepy eyed wonderment of our munchkins.

So….today is Christmas in this firefighter household. Merry Christmas and God bless from our family to yours, especially those who are also shifting those holidays around for similar reasons! Any other firefighter families out there?
