I’ve often wondered why some people are rigidly opposed to marriage, determined to be life-long bachelors or bachelorettes (is that un-pc?), but after reading this article on Strange but True news, I almost get it. I mean if love and commitment in the form of marriage can go so horribly wrong that one is compelled to chop off one’s ring finger as a gesture (er, no pun) of letting go or in this guy’s words “breaking free,” then maybe it’s not worth the risk. The guy cut off his finger! That’s some serious not wanting to be married. Of course he may be unstable (may be??), but it gets you thinking. Perhaps the most poignant and oddly amusing thing about the story is that he refused to have it reattached in part because he wasn’t intending to remarry. Thunk.
