I wouldn’t be okay with it personally. It’s important to me that he wear a wedding band when we’re married. Luckily, my Fiance seems excited to get and wear his own ring!

Not saying this couldn’t work for other couples, but I am sentimental about this, I guess.

My Fiance did not want a wedding ring at first. I was really hurt. He works in IT so it’s not dangerous for him to wear one. When he realized that I was hurt and upset he secretly started looking for a ring. He hopped on the Tiffany website and found a platinum band that he actually likes. It’s a bit pricey, but totally worth it if he’ll actually wear it.

I don’t think I would care if my Fiance decided not to wear his wedding band. Afterall, I rarely wear my engagement ring so it would be hypocritical to expect him to wear a ring all the time.

He is going to have a ring and will wear it on special occaisions.  Because of the nature of his job, he doesn’t plan on wearing it to work.

When we first got engaged, he was kind of anti-ring, but once it arrived and he tried it on, he didn’t want to take it off and is more excited to wear it 🙂

  • We’re getting an e ring for him as well as for me.  I told him that he didn’t have to wear it but his reply was that since he’s going to wear a wedding band in a year or so, he may as well get used to it now.  I think I would be hurt if he didn’t even try a band out.  But if he wore it for a while (several weeks/months) and ended up hating it then, I wouldn’t be too upset.  Most men have never worn a ring before so wearing one is going to be weird and uncomfortable at first–that’s only natural.  But refusing to even try would be very bothersome and frankly, I’d be a bit suspicious.

He will wear it but hes made comments about how weird it will feel. Then he mentioned that he doesnt want it to get ruined at work or get in the way.  Hes a police officer and I could understand if it was on his gun drawing hand how it can maybe get in the way and be dangerous. However, hes a righty and his ring will be on his left hand so I didnt buy that excuse:) haha I think he was joking anyway. He teases me about not wearing it but Im sure he will. We started looking for rings yesterday!

My Fiance is in the automotive industry, so we always worry about it being a safety issue to wear rings; only b/c if you are working on an engine, and you’re wearing jewelry there’s an element of hazard there. He wears a ring that I bought him now, and he refuses to take it off, so I think he’s pretty stoked to have a wedding ring! Have you guys thought about maybe getting a tattoo ring? I know it sounds a little cliche, and if you’re not the ‘tattoo’ sort of people, I completely understand; But that way, it’s there forever & comfortable for him? Just a thought! I would be supportive if my Fiance didn’t want to wear one, but I think it would irritate me a little!

well, DH1 wore a “mangagement” ring and never took his wedding band off after we were married, and while Fiance doesn’t wear a ring now, he’s excited at the prospect of wearing one when we’re married, has even picked one out.  i think they both felt that way for the same reason…excited to have some physical representation to show the world that they’re committed to someone.

that said, my stepdad doesn’t wear a wedding ring…doesn’t even own one, and my mom is perfectly fine with that.  he’s a mechanic/tinkerer though, and you really can’t wear jewelry doing that kind of work because you risk losing digits.

I definitely want him to wear it! I would be offended if he didn’t… I know it’s the thought that counts and all, but that’s just me personally.

@Candace From BC: I know a lot of men that dont wear wedding rings. I dont mind, its more of a personal thing. My fiance will wear one, i understand that it may be awkward for men, but they will get used to it!

Yep. He can’t wait actually, he’s already seen the one he wants.

Yes he is, mine is also pretty excited about it. The only place he will not wear one is at work as he is a carpenter and deals with saws and its a dangerous job where anything could grab a hold of the ring and rip his finger off. I will however be wearing his ring around my neck during the work days and once he comes home and has a shower I will give it to him to wear and also on weekends… That way the ring isnt just sitting at home. I have it with me.
