I think it all depends. On if you like jewerly or not and your job. 

My mom loves jewerly but worked in the laboratory science field (think lots of latex gloves) so when we went out to special events she wore both but daily just the band to prevent cuts in the gloves. 

I work in an office environment and I don’t care for jewelry but I will most likely wear my ring the same way my mom did.

FutureMrsGeek:  I plan on probably just wearing my wedding band most of the time. I love my engagement ring, but I’m also not super big on jewelry so two rings is a bit for me. I think I’m going to get a wedding band with stones in it so I still get some bling though! 🙂

 l love my set and wear them both about 99% of the time. Neither of the rings are particularly large or delicate or super blingy though. They are both family heirlooms and I love seeing them together. 

Wear whatever makes you happy!

I know one person who does this. Her engagement ring spends most of it’s time in her safety deposit box. It’s an heirloom from her husband’s family and she’s been super paranoid about losing it, so after they were married she’s just worn her wedding band (it’s not just a plain band though, it’s really nice).

I’ve been married almost 9 years and wear both my engagement ring and wedding band together daily. My grandma wears only a wide wedding band, and I know two women that are married but don’t wear their rins at all. The not wearing a ring at all is strange to me, but to each their own.

FutureMrsGeek:  Idk if I’d use the word “insulted,” but I would be displeased as well.  Imagine spending months (at least I did) researching designs, ring metals, stone options, etc.:  handpicking every element of your FI’s ring.    And she doesn’t wear it lol.

I’ve always worn mine together.  With the exception of when my mom didn’t have the money to repair her engagement ring, she’s worn both rings together.  My grandmothers always wore theirs together too, so wearing both is normal.

I am not married yet but when I do I will probably wear them together sometimes, but if I am doing something like goung to the groccery store or the gym I would just wear the band. Also I plan on having two bands,  a plan traditional gold one and one with diamonds.

Most people I know wear both. My DH didn’t spend a ton of money on my e-ring, but he did buy it as a gift and I don’t see the point in stowing it away for the majority of the year (seems like a waste then, regardless of how much was spent). 

Also, my e-ring and weddding band are soldered together (to prevent rubbing and spinning). So I have to wear both togeher.

I only wear one ring. When we got married my engagement ring became my wedding ring.

Most people I know where both rings.

FutureMrsGeek: Mine would too. I’m spoiled and have a collection of rings so I switch it up every now and then, but I always wear at least a wedding band. Likewise, my husband wears his band 24/7.
