My husband never wears his wedding band and it’s starting to bother me. He can’t wear it at work and I understand that, but he doesn’t wear it on weekends or anything either. He says he just forgets, but it’s kind of hurtful that he doesn’t even seem to want to wear it (I shouldn’t have to remind him about it). I barely take mine off!
Anyone else’s husband not wear their wedding ring? How do you feel about it?

I didn’t vote because my answer is most of the time. He takes it off when he comes home, and if we go out again he usually forgets to wear it.

@oneofthesethings: added a ‘most of the time’ option 🙂

His job prevents him from wearing it 99% of the time. He’ll wear it when we both go out socially.

My FI won’t be able to wear his at work, but has said he will wear it on weekends and when we go out during the week. I understand you’re upset, but I wouldn’t read too much into it- if he doesn’t normally wear jewellery, the ring might feel strange for him, and men are less likely to be sentimentally attached to their rings like we are. My FI doesn’t understand how I can sleep with my e-ring on… I don’t want to ever take it off if I don’t have to!

He wears it all the time, although there are some times he takes it off for work. I like seeing him wear it, but I’m not someone who would throw a fit if he didn’t. Growing up my dad never wore one and still doesn’t – so it was normal to me.
Ironically one night at dinner with some friends, we got to talking about it and my DH made the comment that he feels like it’s disrepectiful to not wear your wedding ring. I thought that was kind of sweet.

@mm86: Prince William Doesn’t Wear a Wedding Ring
From what I understand many guys don’t wear their wedding rings, and a lot of the time it’s just because they don’t like jewelery. I understand it can be frustrating, but as long as it doens’t seem like he is doing it because he wants to appear single I don’t see a problem. I guess it all boils down to rather or not you trust him.

@nattiejeanne: I definitely trust him and am not worried at all about him wanting to appear single or anything. I just find it slightly hurtful that he doesn’t want to wear it. I just love being married and love wearing my engagement ring & wedding band and don’t know why he doesn’t wear his. I’m not saying he has to love it, but it would be nice if he wore it without me reminding him once in awhile. I also find it sexy when he wears it 😛 haha

@mm86: Maybe you should remind him about the sexy part!

He isn’t technically supposed to wear it to work, but he does anyway. Like me, he never take sit off unless it’s being cleaned. It wouldn’t bother me on an emotional level if he didn’t wear it – it’s not like a ring prevents cheating, means your marriage is better, or can’t be slipped off. It would piss me off on a financial level because if he wasn’t going to wear it, I wouldn’t have bought it.

@nattiejeanne: haha yes maybe I should!

Mine always wears his, but plays with it and loses it all the time!

DH doesn’t wear his at the gym or when cycling. But neither do I.

He wears his when he leaves the house, same as me.

@mm86: FI is absolutely terrified of rings, but he will be wearing it. We’ve discussed it. He’s afraid of his circulation being cut off, losing the finger in a freak accident, etc. So we are going to fit his ring fairly loosely and we are getting a wood and ceramic ring that shoudl break in a bad siatuation rather than sever his finger.
I’m with you, it would make me nuts if he didn’t.
