Ladies: would you be offended if your husband didn't always wear his wedding ring? (Guys: do you/would you always wear yours?)

Unless his occupation keeps him from wearing it, I would otherwise expect him to. It's not too much to ask him to wear a little gold band. I don't understand why you wouldn't want to wear it.

Always. I'm proud that I'm married. Especially to such an amazing woman.

It means nothing, but if my wife thought it did, I would wear it. And I would wear it in public for the sole reason that it prevents needless temptation from others. :)

My husband does appliance repair. He was always getting his ring caught while he was working. So we got our wedding bands tattooed on a few years ago.

I always wear mine. I'm not supposed to at work but I do anyway because its my way of showing that I love my wife and I think of her every time I see it.

Exhusband rarely wore his wedding band. He gave me some excuse about it getting caught on stuff at work. He's a Manufacturing engineer ... Working 98% of the time on computer. I was born at night just not last night. :)

I probably would be. I would think my husband would be happy to be married to me. I would ask him why before I jump to conclusions, though.

I don't have a clue where his wedding ring is. He teaches welding and that's not safe to wear a wedding ring. I don't have one either.

I take off all my jewelry for bed and bathing, wouldn't bother me if he did the same.

I wore my ring everyday of my marriage. It hurt when he didn't wear his, but that was because he was being deceitful. I wonder if in a future marriage it will set off a red flag if he doesn't wear his.

I think I would have negative emotion towards it, but at the same time, my current and past bf's have worked in jobs that may not be the best suited for rings and I can understand not wearing them.

I would have an issue if I felt they were trying

I wouldn't care, the ring isn't what matters in a marriage, the actual marriage / relationship is. And jewelry isn't most men's thing.

I always wear mine, but if my job required me to remove it I would. I don't think that a surgeon's wife would mind if he took off his ring before an operation.

My husband always wears his (like I do mine), so if he stopped wearing it, I'd wonder why.

I'm not into rings so I wouldn't be offended. Though it is a nice gesture if he did wear it all the time.

My husband doesn't wear a ring either. It doesn't bother me at all because we don't define our marriage by material symbolism.

I would love to wear mine. I want a guy that is proud to be married to me. If there are so many excuses over something so small, that would raise a red flag for me.

Some men work in jobs where their finger could be lost by wearing a ring. Maybe that's their explanation?

Sorry to hear that :( I personally think him taking it on and off was disrespectful. Even when he's mad at you he should still respect you as his wife.

I once jumped off the side of a truck at my workplace and my ring got caught. When I hit the ground I gasped in amazement that my finger was still attached. The ring bent into an oval and I had to squeeze it with pliers to get it off. Scared me...

I'm impressed at the gender consistency so far. Based on my experiences I would've expected it to be wildly uneven.

My husband wears his most of the time. He takes it off if he's doing some yard work, when he lifts weights or cooks.

To be deceitful. I don't really believe in marriage, so I don't know why it would be a big deal, but I get emotional and irrational.

Oh ok. Yeah, traditionally it's always worn. But not I think it's become even more of a personal preference/decision of the couple.
