On August 16, 2012, the Broken Promises Coalition commented on one couple’s determination to marry even in the face of a natural disaster. The decision this couple made is a testament to the Coalition’s value of marriage and reflects Broken Promises’ stance against the bridal jewelry industry to begin providing a higher standard of product.
According to The Huffington Post, “When a tropical storm struck the Philippines on August 8, Manila couple Ramoncito Campo and Hernelie Ruazol Campo's wedding venue was flooded. But the now-newlyweds went with the flow and tied the knot anyway.” The couple reportedly exchanged their vows in a Catholic church in a Filipino capital while up to their knees in water. Based on reports from the Daily Mail, “Civil defense Chief Benito Ramos said that police, soldiers, coast guard personnel and military reservists will be used to help the city recover from its worst flooding since 2009.”
Clay Darrohn, Broken Promises representative, commented on the couple’s commitment, stating, “The determination demonstrated by this couple to take their vows in the face of natural disaster is inspiring and a testament to the importance of marriage. This is one example of why the coalition is urging the bridal jewelry industry to demonstrate the same respect for the importance of marriage by creating a higher standard of product and disclosing honest information about their products.”
“Tungsten carbide, a popular material for wedding rings, is advertised as being indestructible, but in reality the rings can break when struck after fatigue just from daily wear,” comments Darrohn. “We believe that couples that believe in love and marriage should be given honest information about these rings and deserve a ring that is made to last a lifetime along with their vows.”
The Broken Promises Coalition is currently populating a petition with signatures to demand that bridal jewelry retailers begin disclosing honest information about their products, specifically tungsten carbide.
Broken Promises is a grassroots consumer advocacy group dedicated to raising awareness about misleading information regarding tungsten carbide wedding rings.
