This is a spinoff of the husband who doesn’t wear his wedding band.
How many wives out there tend to not wear your wedding band? Why? Does your SO comment on your naked fingers?
The most interesting comment I had from one of my DH’s friend’s was “Are you happy in your marriage? I always see Darling Husband with his ring on but never yours.”
I don’t wear mine often because I am at home all day working and typing. It bothers me when I work. Since I often run out of the house without really getting “ready” (make up, hair, etc). It doesn’t really occur to me to put it on unless I am really going out, out. Of course my forgetfulness doesn’t mean I love my Darling Husband any less or would do anything to compromise our marriage.
Who else is in this boat?

I don’t wear mine at work. I work in a lab, so I am in and out of 100 gloves a day, and washing my hands/using sanitizer- it just wears down the white gold. I do pin it on the inside of my pocket though, so I always have it with me 🙂
I also don’t swim in it- the chemicals will wear it down. I don’t sleep in it, shower in it, or do any cleaning in it (again, chemicals).

@DaneLady: I’m the same. I don’t shower, sleep or clean in mine, and I take it off to swim and to work out. Otherwise, my rings are on my finger. 🙂

I wear mine pretty much 100 percent of the time. I work in it (in a lab – I’ve never had issues with the gloves), I shower in it, I sleep in it.
That said, the softball league I’m currently in requires me to remove it for games and occasionally I will forget to put it back on for a day or so. It doesn’t mean I love my Darling Husband any less.

I take mine off while doing anything messy (cooking, gardening) or wet (showering, swimming). Otherwise it’s on my finger.

I wear mine very infrequently. Sometimes I won’t wear any rings, sometimes only my wedding ring or wedding ring plus other rings, sometimes only other rings.
No more or less married when I choose any of these options.

I wear mine when I’m out, always, unless it’s a quick pop to the nearby store to get something. I never wear it when I’m home.

I guess I’m just not much of a jewelry person.
I know a lot of folks feel like they should always wear their rings. It feels weird to me when I’m in casual attire wearing a fancy schmancy ring. It’s not like I wear a diamond encrusted tennis bracelet to the grocery store so why wear a big fancy schmancy ring?

@peanuthead: because the big fancy schmancy ring represents the vows you made to your other and not a fashion statement? lolol I totally get what you mean though.

I forget mine a lot. One time a co-worker asked me if I was still married… Darling Husband and I worked together so that was pretty awkward… Otherwise, I don’t think anyone notices or cares.

I wear mine at work and when I’m out and about. I take it off at home. Won’t wear it if I’m going to say, the family cottage or to the beach, etc etc. I do forget to put it on sometimes. No biggie.

I wear mine when I’m at work/school.
I dont wear it when I am coaching, cleaning, cooking, hanging out at home, sleeping, showering, getting ready to go somewhere, exercising, while doing laundry, etc.
I have to say I probably dont wear mine more than I DO wear mine…but I rarely leave the house without it, aside from the gym.

I have a thin, plain band. I wore rings before we got married, so it doesn’t bother me. I take off the engagement ring at home most of the time. I generally wear it to work and when I go out, but sometimes I forget.

I wear mine if I am out. If I’m at home, I take it off as soon as I hit the door.

My wedding band only comes off to shower or do really messy cooking (like meatloaf or kneading dough) or put on lotion / hand cream so far. I sleep in it, clean in it, etc. It’s a 3mm plain titanium band, and I honestly forget it’s there until I look down. My engagement ring is only worn out to places where it won’t get damaged though.
