@2beemrs:  My FI will wear one, but my father never did. Why can’t he still have one and just not wear it to work?

@2beemrs:  Yeah, that would bother me too. But some guys really just don’t like rings.

My DH wears one but only on the weekends. He is a mechanic and has a Tungsten Carbide ring and since that kind of ring can’t be cut (it can shatter) it could take off his finger if he got it caught working on a car. Safety first!

@2beemrs:  My father doesn’t wear a wedding band, he’s not a jewellery person at all! My parents have been married for 27 years, so I guess wedding band or not, all is good 🙂

@2beemrs:  My DH has one but he only wears it on the weekends. He cannot wear it during the week at work, as he works on big trucks and does some welding, and there’s a risk of it getting caught in something, causing him to lose a finger, etc. 

 

It doesn’t bother me, but thats probably because I don’t wear my rings 95% of the time, so who am I to get upset if he doesn’t?

MY DH tungsten ring shattered, so now he doesn’t wear one! It honestly bothers HIM more than it bothers me that he isn’t (and hasn’t been for a few months now) wearing a ring. 

But, then again…I wear my rings MAYBE 3-4 times a year. So I suppose I am biased. 🙂

If it upsets you, talk to him about it and see what you can compromise on. Maybe he can only wear it when he’s outside of work?

FI says some of the electricians at work and the electrical engineers who are in the field do not wear their bands due to electrical conductivity and risk of electrocution. They work in a power plant though, so that is some dangerous voltage they would get. He says some wear their bands at social events, others get used to having to take it off so they don’t wear it was much.

DH doeant wear his and it doesn’t bother me.  The only time he wears it is if we go out and he wears a watch too on special occasions or on vacation.  He washes his hands at work a lot and it would be going on and off often.  If rather he not lose it and I trust him to tell people he’s married.

FH has already said that he’ll wear his ring at the wedding, but that I shouldn’t be upset if he doesn’t wear it much, or ever, after. It’s fine. He’s a welder. I’d rather him keep all of his fingers than wear a ring. He hates wearing rings and I’ve known that the entire time I’ve known him. I’m perfectly fine with him not wearing one. It’s why we bought a cheap one in the first place.

My DH rarely wears a wedding band.  I don’t care.  🙂  Our marriage is exactly the same either way.

My dad doesn’t! He used to, but he lost it at work (he used to have to take it off all the time because he works with heavy duty chemicals) and just never replaced it. My mom actually doesn’t wear one anymore, either. Nor does she wear her engagement ring (she developed an allergy to gold later in life). But they’re still happily married!

My husband does not wear his ring. He tried it out for a bit after we got married and he didn’t like the feel and also can’t wear it to work anyway. I don’t care if he wears a ring or not.
