My parents were divorced when I was 16. I have always wanted to repurpose my mom's lace gown into something that would suit me. Also, my mom recently reminded me that I inherit her engagement ring, wedding band, and anniversary ring (they have been "welded" together). She then told me that if I didn't want them she would melt them into something for herself. I don't really know if I want to wear her exact setting but I also feel weird about her "regifting" it to herself after telling me that I was to recieve it. Is it bad luck to re-use anything from your divorced parents marriage? I'm not concerned so much about the dress but what are your opinions on the rings? I should mention that my parents had a happy marriage and an amicable divorce. They were married for 25 years, there was no adultry, no screaming, no abuse...my dad simply fell out of love after years of working out-of-town.
