  • poll: Does your husband wear his wedding ring?

    Always, he doesn't want to take that thing off

    Sometimes, but not on a daily basis

    Not since the wedding day

    we’re not married yet, but he has said that he’ll probably wear it as often as hid dad does. that means he’ll only take it off when he is playing basketball or doing anything where his hands will get dirty.

    He takes it off to shower because he is afraid it will slip off and go down the drain.  Otherwise he wears it all the time, even when I think he should take it off so it won’t get all beat up!

    Mine wears his all the time, except for when he takes it off to show it to me and say "I’m not wearing it!!!!".  Before we got married, I told him to never take it off because he’d probably end up loosing it – and now he likes to joke about it.  He used to take it off to put on lotion or wash his hands, but I put an end to that real quick when I went in the bathroom and saw it on the sink!

    We aren’t married yet, but he already wears a band. I bought him a heavy white gold band years ago when he bought me a promise ring. He got very used to wearing it and doesn’t take it off ever. He claims it throws him off balance when its off, and if it is ever off, I’ll catch him hurriedly putting it back on as soon as possible. He even wants to wear that band as his wedding band every day rather than nick and scratch the nice, new one we just bought! O.O

    My fiance is skeptical about whether he will like wearing a ring all the time.  He’s so not a jewelry person!  But I am pretty sure he’ll come around.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    my hubby wants to wear his but its too small. So he wants to go to the store and switch it or try to make it bigger. He wears it on his necklace.

    I hope he’s going to wear it all the time! We had a heck of a time picking one out that he actually liked.

    It took him a couple months to get used to wearing a ring- but now he loves it and never takes it off!

    My husband is a pilot and he never really wears jewelry so he picked a ring he liked, but assumed he wouldnt actually wear it all the time.  He had it on for a week before he had to take it off for flying.  He said he felt naked without it and wanted it back on asap.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    My FH and I have talked about this subject a lot.  He is a coal miner, a farmer and construction worker on the side, and just plain accident prone!  He’s gotten his hands smashed and caught in things more times than I can count.  He’s even gotten to the point he doesn’t wear gloves cus he’s gotten them caught so many times.  I would much rather him not wear the ring then to lose his finger, his hand, his arm, or even his life!  I did however buy him a band for the ceremony and am hoping he will at least wear it on anniversaries and such.

    I’ve worn a ring around my neck (my fiance’s "promise ring" to me) and it meant just as much as an engagement or wedding band. I also understand having to not have it on his hands for work. I’m in nursing, and I have to pin my engagement band to my scrubs because I’m not allowed to wear anything other than a completely flat (non-engraved) wedding band for fear of contamination. I have a friend whose father can’t wear his wedding band at work because he might get electrocuted.

    True, the concern over the ring getting banged up is a little less…valid. So by all means, get him to try to wear it on his hand. Maybe humour him and let him wear it around his neck at work, but request that he wear it on his hand when you go out for dates, etc?
