so my husband thought he didn’t want to wear a ring and had asked me if we could buy him a chain as well and so he can wear it on the chain.  I told him I wanted him to try it on his finger for 2 weeks (once we got married obviously) and if it really bugged him that much, that we’d go out and buy him the chain..well we never went and got that chain because he loved having it on his finger.. so maybe the chain can be an idea for your fiance? That way you can still get him a nice ring and he won’t feel forced to wear it?

My DH is not a jewlery guy at all, other than a watch, and he wears a wedding ring. He has a “real” ring but 99% of the time he wears his rubber QALO ring…..as do almost all the men I know in our circle. I’ve never asked him to, he just personally feels it’s disrepectful to our marriage to not wear one.  I grew up with a dad who never wore a wedding ring, so it was normal for me and if DH told me he didn’t want to wear one I wouldn’t have made a fuss, but I appriciate that it’s important to him as well.

While we were engaged my husband thought he wouldn’t want to wear a ring. Which was fine with me. Up until a couple months before we got married and he changed his mind. Now he never even takes it off! And he’s never worn any jewelry in his life. So you never know. I only wear my rings when I leave the house so he’s wearing his way more than me.

Nothing wrong with a silicone ring!  My husband wears a $20 stainless steel band.

My fiance is a lefty and draws with a stylus up against a computer screen all day, so a metal ring would be uncomfortable as his hand presses up against the screen. He’s going to wear a silicone ring for everyday wear, but I wanted to him to have a nicer ring for our ceremony and for special occasions. He looked around on Etsy and found a bronze ring he likes. I’m excited for it to come in and see how it looks on his finger!

Neither my husband nor I am big on jewlery and neither of us wears a wedding ring.  We will be married 25 years in a few weeks.  My husband is also a HVAC tech so it would be dangerous for him to wear a ring.

My husband doesn’t wear a ring. He tried to when we were first married. I would find the ring in odd places where he had taken it off absent-mindedly. I found it tied to a string of a blanket once. He doesnt like the feel of rings and he’d have to take it off for work anyway. It doesnt bother me at all, with or without a ring he knows we’re married.

My fiance plans on getting a tattoo (I’m honestly a little relieved my dad lost 5 wedding bands in his day and my fiance is a little forgetful). We are skipping a ring ceremony and doing a Celtic hand tying ceremony instead. It’s not for everyone, but your wedding should be whatever works best for you two 🙂

Megan14 :  My DH has a tungsten ring. 

We got a cheaper one from Macy’s ( i think it was a couple hundred?) because he insisted that he does not wear jewelery and would pretty much be for ceremony purposes.

he wears it EVERY DAY. Like he gets panicked when he cant find it lol. I wish i got him a slightly nicer one if that was the case! But still, great price, very durable and he likes it.

He works in the electrical industry so he cannot wear anything but a silicone one at work, but we got him a nice ring (titanium) for the wedding. He actually prefers the titanium ring so when we are on vacation he switches to that, but otherwise wears the silicone ring 24/7.

My husband doesn’t wear a ring and it doesn’t bother me at all.  When we were planning our wedding I asked haim about wearing a wedding ring. He said he would if I wanted him to but in all honesty he doesn’t like jewelry. It really didn’t bother me that he preferred no to wear one.
