I guess it depends on how traditional and how vocal the people in your life/area are and whether their comments or assumptions would bother you. Most people certainly assume that if you are not wearing a wedding band that you are not married. But other people’s assumptions aren’t necessarily your problem, either. To me, the only issue lies in whether it will bother you if people either question you or assume you are not married. If that would bother you, then you should try to find a band that works with your ring or perhaps wear a WB on your left hand and your ER on your right. If their comments and/or assumptions don’t bother you, then do what you wish.

I’m going with just the engagement ring and skipping the 2nd band… To me, a ring is a ring, and I only need one. I didn’t even know there were supposed to be two separate rings until I was in my mid-20’s.

My mom wore her engagement ring for years, and has just in the last few years started wearing both again. My engagement ring was designed to fit my sometimes rough lifestyle (lots of animals and outdoors!) and my wedding band will be more delicate, so for me there’s a possibility that I’ll wear one more than the other. Honestly, I don’t think it’s a big deal at all, and if somebody has a problem with it then they can assure that they wear both 🙂

You could always wear the band on your other hand.

Wear whatever you are comfortable with. Some wear them separate, some switch them out depending on what they’re doing/prefer, some wear one on each hand and some just wear a band on the right hand – it’s up to you. The ring won’t change your relationship.
