Ladies: would you be offended if your husband didn't always wear his wedding ring? (Guys: do you/would you always wear yours?)
We both get calluses when we play golf, so we take them off occasionally. It doesn't bother me at all! We trust each other and that's all that matters.
When I work it gets hung up on stuff.
I take mine off when I workout.
I would say yes I would mind but he's never liked to take it off. He had to recently because of weight loss so he doesn't loose it. That's an ok reason to me. We will be having it resized soon.
For those people who can't wear rings at work; have you ever considered wearing it on a necklace a la Frodo Bagging?
Silly autocorrect. That should read "Baggins".
If he had a good. reason, no. If it was 'just because', then yes.
We don't remove ours. However, he's a commercial electrician and there are times he should remove it for his safety.
My first husband took his on and off if he was mad at me. I finally removed mine and never put it back on. He put his back on thinking I would too. Took forever to divorce that idiot.
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.
Well my husband and I work around food. So if his gets moisture trapped (from washing hands) he's gets an allergic reaction. I just have bad eczema. We frequently don't wear ours. But I think for the most part we do wear them out...
Also I don't really like to wear jewelry all the time....
My bf does construction so if we ever get married he cant wear it... Plus him and jewelry would look ridiculous.
It could be taken off when it's just us, along with everything else. Why wouldn't you want to wear it in public? Sure, there might be times when there's a good reason, but shouldn't they want to show it off. I sometimes wear a ring to appear taken.
It's not much to ask, but is be fine with him not wearing it all the time. I have to say: Wear it a lot though because those things cost some bucks.
If I ever took it off, the blinding white tan line would still be there.
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.
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.
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 figured that's why a bunch of guys wouldn't.
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. :)
We both always wear ours and rarely take them off.
I don't have a ring yet! :D
Well when/if you do would you expect you or your wife to wear it most of the time?
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.
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.
Make your next one get a ring tat. No taking it off :-)
Maybe a tattoo on his forehead "inge's bi***" :D
I never even bought him one. I knew he wouldn't wear it because of his line of work.
He had a business in the construction field.
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.
It's the ONE ring to rule than all.
My precious ...my precious....
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.
I thought you were never supposed to do it.
Never supposed to wear it? Well of course it's a personal choice but it appears as if most do.
Never supposed to take it off.
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.
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 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.
My ex never wore one. If I can't trust him, I don't want him.
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
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.
Doesnt bother me. Bothers him a bit.
He likes having his territory marked. Im surprised he hasn't pissed in my leg yet lol
I'm impressed at the gender consistency so far. Based on my experiences I would've expected it to be wildly uneven.
I take off all my jewelry for bed and bathing, wouldn't bother me if he did the same.
I can't wear it at work, so I generally keep it off all the time.
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.
Always. I'm proud that I'm married. Especially to such an amazing woman.
Aww very sweet :)
I used to wear it until a hand injury at work. Now I wear it when we go out, events, occasions, days off, etc...
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 always wears his (like I do mine), so if he stopped wearing it, I'd wonder why.
I would wear it all the time if my wife wants me to. If she doesn't care, I would still always wear it out in public.
And why is that? Cause on the other poll you said "a wedding ring means nothing"...
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. :)
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.
That's true, I'm sure there are exceptions. Understandable.
Mine never leaves my finger.
It's that whole Semper Fi.
Semper Fi to you too teufel hunden.
Very cool for both of you. I know a lot of men that don't wear theirs but their wives do. I was wondering if that was a general trend.
Some men work in jobs where their finger could be lost by wearing a ring. Maybe that's their explanation?
Possibly. I know there are some who think jewelry is too much of a feminine thing, even though I don't consider a wedding ring as jewelry per se...
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...
Whoa that's intense. I'd imagine it'd be much easier to always wear your ring if you just had an office job...
I have an office job now. So you're exactly right! +1
Have not taken it off in 26 years.
