    I take it off to shower, do dishes, and when I’m cooking with raw meat.  Other than that it stays on.

    I keep it on all the time.  I only take it off to clean it.  I know that is kinda bad for the ring itself, but wearing the ring that my Fiance bought me just means the world to me.

    I think I’m weird because I actually have mine off more than on, LOL. Out in public I always wear it, but pretty much as soon as I walk in the door it comes off. I’m usually doing stuff I just don’t want to wear it for – laundry, dishes, showering, putting on makeup, cooking, cleaning, whatever. Plus, I like the free feeling my finger gets without it on. I’m not much of a jewelry person in general so at home it just feels nice not to wear it.

    I also take it off when I drive sometimes because I get distracted by it sparkling in the windshield. I think, Oh pretty! and then realize I’m paying more attention to the ring than the road. Dumb!

    I take my rings off quiet often whenever there are liquids involved (dishes, washing hands, lotion, bathing, etc.) and when I cook messy things where I have to get down and dirty (think meatloaf).  I also do not wear them to bed because my arms have a tendency to go places.

    I take mine off to do dishes or if Im doing a lot of house cleaning. Thats about it. However I usually do dishes almost every day so I will take it off and then leave it off for the rest of the night. Everyone is different though – do whatever you are comfortable with!

    I take mine off to sleep, shower and when I’m working with harsh chemicals (like when I’m cleaning the bathroom). I’ve taken it off if I have to really knead bread dough or form meatballs or stuff like that where I’ve got my hands all in the food because I don’t want to get food bits caught in my ring.

    I take off my rings when I clean things, cook or do other tasks I use my hands for that I feel might dirty or damage them. I take off all my jewelry before bed and I only put it on again after I shower the next morning.

    I wear mine all the time! As soon as I get up, I put my ring on. I love the feeling of wearing it. It makes me feel pretty. haha. Anyways, I wear her pretty much do to everything besides, working with dough, or bleach or any other harsh chemical. I leave her on to do dhishes, but take her off when I shower. I also take her off right before bed. Otherwise she does what I does.

    I don’t wear it around the house and since i work from home, that’s pretty much all day during the week.  Often if I’m leaving in a hurry to just run down the street to grab take out, then i won’t remember to put it on.  I also don’t wear it to the gym or walk the dog.  I’ve actually knocked the diamond loose by wrapping the dogs leash around my hand!

    It definitely spends more time off than on.  At first I wore it a lot but once i realized that things like walking the dog and going to the gym were damaging the ring, i started to wear it less. 

    I agree with do whatever makes you comfortable!

    If my hands are going to be getting wet or dirty. Sometimes I have to take it off to sleep because my hands get swollen (lovely auto-immune disease) and it gets painful to keep it on but aside from those, I usually keep it on.

    After eight years, going on nine, of wearing it, I’ve finally started taking it off other than to take a shower.  I now take it off and sometimes (*gasp!*) leave it off during the day if I’m not going anywhere.  

    I think it just gets easier the longer you’ve been together and been wearing it.  I used to abhor taking it off for ANY reason, but now that we’re living together and finally planning a wedding for next year, it’s been a lot easier and I don’t feel guilty for not wearing it.

    In reality, I think that my e-ring (and wedding band) are off more than they are on! I only wear them if I am leaving the house for something. Otherwise, they are off and in their box. I am convinced that if I were to keep them on I would knock a stone out or scratch something!
