Hardly ever & if so only to do something really fast then he puts it back on. He has even wore it while working out/lifting weights. He loves it & ever started wearing his first band (which was a silver temp ring) before we got married because he couldn’t wait. I thought it was cute. 🙂
I take mine off alot more than he does but I always put them right back on. Like when doing dishes, hardcore cleaning or showering.
He wears his in the shower as well, btw.

Darling Husband never wore a ring before we were married. We left the next day for our honeymoon and during that time boy was he annoying. He kept playing with it, and taking it on & off and than complained that it hurt his knuckle. I couldn’t count how many times I found it in our hotels in Italy and made him put it back on.
Before we left, I made him promise that he would wear it for the entire trip and if it still bothered him after, he could leave it off. Those 2 weeks were all it took for him to get used to it. Last night he took it off to give me a foot rub (I’m so lucky) and than bugged out when he realized that it wasn’t on his finger…

My husband wears it all the time and never takes it off. However when we were first married he would take it off to shower, go to the gym etc but now he just leaves it on.
He used to play with it all the time just after our wedding – he has never ever worn a piece of jewellery before so it just took him some time to get used to it, now he loves it and says looking at it gives him strength when he is having a bad day 🙂

Maybe you could have a designated place to put his ring when he comes home or is not wearing it so it doesn’t get lost.

He always wears his. The only exception is when he’s taking a shower, and leaves it on the bathroom counter. He puts it back on once he’s done. I wear mine 24/7 and only remove them to put hand cream on!

MY Darling Husband NEVER WEARS IT! it used to irritate me but then again this guy doesn’t wear a watch, necklace, any other rings or anything “fancy”. He will wear it when we go out to dinner or to a wedding or something….and if we’re traveling. He def wears it to our place of worship too. But he hates it all other times.
Oh and–currently he’s wearing a ring he doesn;t like becuase he lost his super expensive one…so that doesnt help, that he isn’t a huge fan of his new ring. But we we’rnt about to spend a huge amount AGAIN on a ring he’d hardly ever wear. Im hoping we find his original ring in the house one day randomly!

Mine wears his all the time even to bed and sometimes when showering. He only takes it off to put gel and stuff in his hair, ha! He does occasionally forget to put it back on, but he’ll remember when he comes home. The only time he left it off for a while was when he worked at a coffee shop and something got underneath the ring, causing his finger to blister. Once it healed he wore it again.
I actually take mine off more often (for bed, showers, to do dishes, to cook, etc.) and have misplaced it a couple times, which always makes me panic a bit.
I wouldn’t worry about it too much 🙂

@runsyellowlites: Once upon a time I had a pregnant friend who ordered a stand-in look alike set for when her fingers swelled. She planned on having more kids, so she thought the investment was worth it. 🙂 There are some nice ones on overstock.com that are very reasonable (Sterling silver)

I’m with the PP! My husband NEVER takes his off, not even in the shower. I take mine off every night!

My Darling Husband almost never wears his. It’s not exactly safe for the type of work he does. It used to bother me a little at first, but after I xrayed a finger that was completely degloved of everything but the bone because of a wedding band I changed my tune =) Sometimes if we are going out and I remember I’ll remind him to put it on, but I’ve kidn of just given up lol

To each their own. I dont like lounging around at home, cleaning, working out, playing sports, beach, swimming, etc with my e ring on. I take all jewelry off as soon as I get home and before i would do any of the things above. I told my fi once we are married I prefer he wear his ring most of the time, ie at work or when going out with or without me, but if he forgot or something once in a while, it wouldn’t upset me. All of my married coworkers seem horrified by this and think its very strange, and tell me once we are married I will “get out of that habit” and never take my rings off, which I disagree with. In any case, whatever works for you!

Right now, he wears his all the time. When he deploys, he is not allowed to bring any jewelry whatsoever (including watches), so I’m keeping his ring and will wear it with a copy of his dog tags.
He’s planning on getting a ring tattoo at some point, because he just can’t have anything on and wants to at least look like he’s got a ring.

Darling Husband takes his off to get comfy at home. When it’s just the two of us (which is 99.9% of the time) he also takes off his pants and walks around in his boxers. Putting the ring back on is part of his getting ready to go out routine in the morning. He doesn’t like to sleep wearing it.
He’s usually really good about remembering it. He was on the way to work once and almost out of our subdivision when he realized he didn’t have his ring, and turned around to go get it. He was so upset that he left the house without it.
I wear a plain gold band most of the time. My “real” rings have diamonds, and I’m totally paranoid about something happening to them. When I’m not wearing the diamond rings, the plain band is always on, even when I shower or sleep.
I’m thinking of getting him a cheap backup ring to keep in the car in case he forgets his wedding ring at home. I don’t want him to have to turn back to get it. I have a stand-in ring, so he should too.

@subbywife11: I didn’t realize soldiers in combat couldn’t even wear a wedding band. I think it’s really sweet that he wants to get one tattooed on since he can’t wear jewelry for his job.

@strawbabies: Thanks, I think it’s sweet too. 🙂 I’m not sure if those in combat can’t take their rings with them either, but DH’s job involves dealing with lots of electricity and computer parts, so that’s more the reason. If he wore a ring, he would be taking a severe risk of being electrocuted! No good….
