My Fiance works in Navy Special Forces, so there are situations where, for safety reasons (mainly to avoid being seen by a reflection, but also for manual dexterity), he won’t be able to wear his ring. He wants one though, or at least a statement that he’s married, so he will get a subtle tattoo over which he will wear the ring whenever he can.
I understand it for safety reasons, but for those who say it’s uncomfortable, I think it’s a bit of a cop out. It took me awhile to get used to my engagement ring, but I did eventually. And e-rings have stones and settings hanging off them that get caught up on things!

Mine doesn’t wear jewelry so he wasn’t too excited about the whole ring thing in general. But we found a tungsten one he likes and will probably wear it for the ceremony and I’m not sure when else. He wants to mostly wear it around his neck hanging from paracord. LOL! I know that sounds crazy but he’s into survival gear so it totally suits him! I’m just excited he found one we both like!

Fiance is going to wear one. He used to have one and wore it all the time, he didnt think it was fair I got to wear an e ring and he didnt lol. but then he lost it, because it was a bit to big when he lost weight. Now he doenst have one yet and he is sad lol. To be honest though Im happy he wants to wear a ring. I think it would bother me if he didnt want to. That is something that symbolizes our love.

My FI isn’t wearing a wedding band, and i dont mind at all. he operates machinery and its not safe to wear rings. and even when he isn’t at work, he really isnt a jewellery kind of a guy. I dont think of us being less married or committed if he doesnt wear a ring. its relatively new for men to wear wedding rings anyway, women have always worn them, but not men, its actually traditional for only the woman to have one…..take Prince William for instance. People assume he didnt have one purely because he didnt want one, but he didnt have one because thats the old traditional way of doing it. Plus they are running low on the welsh gold that all the royals have their wedding rings made from. thats also possibly why kate only had a 2mm one, to save on gold. (i say ONLY 2mm, as if its a bad thing, mine is also only 2mm, I chose it and i love it)

Yes, he is going to wear a simple polished yellow gold band. The only jewelry he wears on a regular basis is a yellow gold chain that his mom gave him when he was younger so I wasn’t sure how he’d feel about wearing a ring, but he’s excited that his ring will match his necklace.

DH wore his before we were engaged. I made it for him. He loves it and gets compliments on it everyday.

My Fiance won’t be wearing a ring. I was upset for about 10 minutes, before I realized that it didn’t really matter. My mom never had an engagement ring, that didn’t mean she wasn’t engaged and hasn’t lowered her happiness with my dad after 31 years! Then I learned that men really only started to wear wedding rings in the last 100 or so years–and in most parts of the world they STILL don’t wear them. Besides, Fiance uses any opportunity to talk about the fact that he has a fiancee so I’m not worried lol. Yeah, it is different from what I had just assumed would be, but in the end it really doesn’t bother me at all.

We aren’t engaged yet, but it’s something that we’ve talked a lot about during my ring process, and while he’s been reluctant because he has never worn any jewelery, I think he will now! He was always under the impression that wedding rings have to be shiny with diamonds and not “masculine” but once we started looking for my engagement ring, I caught him wandering to the men’s side a few times, and he’s really loving the look of titanium bands!

Mine wears a ring already. He can’t wait to put his actual wedding band on in place of it.

My Fiance is wearing a wedding band, and he is having the band and my name tattooed on his finger so that if he has to take the band off for work, it is still there.

My DH doesn’t wear his 95% of the time. Due to his line of work, I understood that he can’t wear the wedding band during weekdys. On weekends, or when we go out on weekday, I have to remind him to wear his ring by slipping into his 4th finger and say… “I do!!!!” =)

He will be wearing a wedding band with diamonds, which has already been picked, and is super excited. He alreaady wants to wear it. However, I think that it is a decision that should be made between you two. If the idea occasionally bothers you, maybe he can compromise and choose something he thinks will be comfortable, or wear a ring on the weekends, etc.

I think I know how you feel. I would want Fiance to wear a wedding ring, but I know he doesn’t like the idea of wearing any jewelry. I’d be okay with it if he really didn’t want to though.
Maybe he could wear it on a chain around his neck or something? Or he could have a wedding watch instead of a ring? Haha

I didn’t need him to have an engagement ring (which is normal in my country) but I wanted him to wear a wedding ring. Luckily, he agreed with me. I think I would have been a little hurt, maybe if he didn’t.
As it turns out, he wants a ring to show that we are engaged. I love the idea, actually, and I didn’t think I’d care. Now I can’t wait to get it on his finger, I just need to save up for it first:)
