Here's another orphaned prompt answer. Anonymous prompted me with an anonymous quotation: The three rings of marriage are the engagement ring, the wedding ring, and the suffering.

Three Rings (PG; Hermione and Ron; 100 words): drabble.

Engagement Ring

When he slid it onto her finger, Hermione was thrilled; the diamond sparkled in the moonlight, and Ron's eyes glittered with love as he looked at her.

Wedding Ring

When she slid it onto his finger, Ron's eyes shone with unshed tears, and Hermione found herself loving him more for his hidden depths of sensitivity.

Suffering

When they slid their wedding bands off their fingers, both of them were dry-eyed: Ron had realised that his Auror career wasn't conducive to marriage and family, and Hermione had accepted that her career was more important to her than a husband.

If Ron had tears in his eyes it was because someone was standing on his toes!
