(PRWEB) August 06, 2012
On August 6, 2012, The Broken Promises Coalition commented about one couple’s inspiring journey to the altar just a day before the bride was scheduled to undergo intensive brain surgery, the coalition believes that the couple’s commitment the power of marriage vows even in the face of adversity.
According to The Huffington Post, “Jamie Amos said ‘I do’ to long-time boyfriend Jonathan Tafoya Tuesday in a ceremony at the hospital before she went under the knife to remove a cancerous, golf ball-sized tumor in her brain.” Katy Muldoon of OregonLive.com and The Oregonian reports that the pair had discussed marriage before but as they prepared for her surgery, they knew that it was the right time, “’I wanted to go into the surgery and come out to my husband,’ [Amos] says. ‘He could be my strength.’”
Following Jamie and Jonathan’s touching journey to the altar, Clay Darrohn, Broken Promises representative, stated, “Jamie Amos was convinced that her new husband would be a source of strength in a trying time of her life. Her commitment to her husband is a testament to the strength of wedding vows that represent the love between two people. We believe that this exceptional couple, and all couples, deserves to have a wedding ring as strong as the bond between them to represent their vows.” Darrohn goes on to state, “This is why we are working to inform the public that tungsten carbide, a popular contemporary material for wedding rings, is not indestructible. It is scratch resistant, but very brittle and can break after fatigue from day-to-day activities. We want to keep all couples from experiencing a representation of their sacred vows breaking.”
The Broken Promises Coalition is currently populating signatures on a petition to insist that retailers of tungsten carbide wedding bands disclose information about their products to the public.
Broken Promises is a grassroots consumer advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness about misleading information regarding tungsten carbide wedding rings. Started in April of 2012, Broken Promises is a group of concerned consumers dedicated to sharing information about the brittle nature of tungsten rings to brides and grooms to-be.
