    Being totally honest, yes it would bother me. For ages FI said he didn’t want to wear one and all I asked was that he tried some on and if he didn’t like them then he didn’t have to have one. I’m so glad he changed his mind! He feels really happy about wearing one now and enjoyed shopping I think.

    When we get married I wantcmy fiance to wear a ring whenever he is out in public unless he is doing something manual with his hands which would keep him from doing so.

    DH does not wear his wedding band, in part for religious tradition and in part for personal preference (he doesn’t even wear a watch) and I could’t care less.  By wearing a wedding band is not how I want him to show the world he’s a happily married man.

    It would bother me. But there are some situations i feel that it wouldn’t bother me. My fiancé is an electrician, and it can be dangerous to wear any jewelry. There are other jobs like that. But I’d say any other time other than work I would expect him to wear his ring as it’s a symbol of his commitment and I feel like if he didn’t wear it it would give the wrong impression – not just to others but to me as well. That’s just how I would feel… Not saying it should be the same for others.

    I don’t care. I did at first and would always bug my husband to put his ring on when we go out in public but then I realized it didn’t matter. We aren’t any less married because he doesn’t wear his ring.

    LittleE3:  I wanted him to wear a ring but he refused. Admittedly it did bother me at first but the truth is he’d have to take it off for work anyway, and contrary to what I expected even I don’t wear mine all the time. It’s not practical with either of our jobs and my hand is more comfortable without it.

    LittleE3:  my father never wore his. i think it was quite common for their generationto not wear one and I hate men wearing jewellery so i always assumed my husband wouldn’t wear one. Turns out im right. My FI works a manual job so he’d damage it or take it off and lose it or something so im fine with him not wearing one. I never expected him to. Won’t make him any less married to me.

    I chose other because FI works in a setting where it isn’t the best environment for a ring. If he doesn’t wear one for work, that would not bother me. I would be a little upset if he didn’t wear it when we are out together depending on the situation (wedding, something for work (mine) or a special occasion) but really it’s not too much of a big deal to me.

    It would bother me a bit, but I think I’d get over it. I never had to worry about it though, my FI decided to start wearing a ring six months ago. He doesn’t like to wear it at home though, which is fine, and sometimes he forgets it when he leaves the house, and I don’t flip out lol. I think it’d be nice if once we’re married he leaves his wedding band on a bit more since it fits better than the ring he wears now, but whatever. When he’s in the house we bought together with evidence of my existence all over the place it’s not like it’s really necessary, and forgetting it when he goes out bothers him more than me. 😛

    My husband wears his most of the time, but he’s moving into a welding job soon and I know he’s not going to wear it then. It doesn’t bother me. Before we got married I didn’t think he would wear one at all.

    Once he puts that ring on, it’s never coming off, lol. It would hurt and humiliate me if he didnt want to wear a wedding ring to show our union to the world! kind even bothered me when Prince William refused to wear a wedding ring after Kate had waited so long to marry him.

    Different strokes and all, but it is definitely a must for me that he wears his ring (which I want to personally custom design!).

    LittleE3:  Considering we spent $500 on a white gold band, yes it would upset me. Haha, if we hadn’t spent that much…I think it would depend. My DH doesn’t wear it when he plays sports or is working in the yard/on the car. Otherwise, it really hasn’t been a conversation. He never indicated he wasn’t interested in wearing it. I would be a little annoyed and want to know why if he didn’t want to wear it, but I wouldn’t force/pressure him to wear one.

    My DH doesn’t wear his ring as much as I’d like, and I let him know it, lol. I’m not bitchy about it by any means, but joke about it with him.
