I am not any less married without my rings lol.  They are a lovely symbol, not ownership bands that must never be taken off-too funny!  I’ve worn a lot of very nice jewelry since I was a little girl so I am used to keeping up with my pieces, I have ring holders in every room practically and always have.

I only take mine off if Im giving our dog a bath other than that its always on. But I think its different for me for a couple reasons, one its a bezel set so the chance of it falling out or catching on something is slim and I work in the fine jewellery industry so if I need it cleaned or polished or fixed I can get it done right away.

I wear mine pretty much 24/7 – Sleep, shower, ect. I wouldn’t have it any other way! 🙂

I take mine off when I do anything involving water.  I have a nickel allergy and it led to dermatitis with my white gold e ring so now that I have rose gold, I do the same out of habit.  I’ve always taken mine off to shower, but I used to sleep in them and wash hands, etc.  I’m to scared to see if my dermatitis will come back with the rose gold!

I take off my ring to sleep, shower, and cleaning. For working out, if I go for a bike ride or do yoga, I keep it on. If it is running or lifting weights, I take it off. I keep ring holders in the kitchen and my nightstand

My jeweler warned about sleeping with rings on. He said the rubbing on the sheets can wear down the prongs faster. So I don’t do that. I have once and ended up scratching my face haha

I only take mine off when I’m using hand sanitizer or lotion.

I slept with mine once, when it was new.  Never again, it was a PITA even though it’s small.  I also can’t stand the feel of wetness under my rings, so always off when washing hands, showering, cooking, cleaning the dog, etc.  Also like others, my fingers swell when hiking or just out in the heat, so I don’t wear them then either.  Heck, within 2 days of my wedding they were stuck back in their box while I took a vacation with my sister (weird, I know, but husband didn’t have any more time off and we had places to go!).

No one in my immediate family bothers wearing their rings much unless they’re going out.  It just doesn’t seem like a big deal to us, the vow is what matters and we’re not major jewelry people in general.  In fact, I haven’t touched my rings all day and my husband’s is on a hook in our bathroom.  My best friend, however, was horrified to learn that I ever remove them, as was her mother.  Different strokes, I suppose.

Before I got them I thought I would wear them all the time, ha! I don’t.
I wear a lot of accessories daily and when I get home everything comes off – bracelets, watch, necklaces, earrings and also my rings.

I cook for DH almost every single night and I start dinner as soon as I get home, another reason why the rings come off.

I never leave the house without them though! 🙂

I take all my jewelry off when I get home, rings included. Sometimes, when I have to run errands all day, I just wear the wedding ring and leave the e-ring at home. It’s just more comfortable.

I’ll only take mine off while cleaning or if I go tanning.

I take mine off as soon as I get home. I’m trying to get into the habit- mine’s just my little 6$ charming charlie one- but I don’t wear rings- so habit habit habit.  But nope- do not sleep with it on- I’m afraid it will fall off. 

 

I go straight from work to the gym so I’m still trying to work that out- right now I keep it on a safety pin on my gym back that I schluf around while I’m lifting- but that obviously seems like a piss poor solution.   I see several people mention they take theirs off to lift- where do you put it?

 

edit:Reading backwards… LULZ- I can tell who does manual labor, lifts, works with animals, machinary- or stuff like that and then who doesn’t.
