    I think if he didn’t want to b/c he didn’t like wearing jewelry, I would have been ok with it. But he was excited to wear his ring, and hasn’t taken it off yet (other then for surgery). And that makes me happy.

    My Fiance isn’t a fan a jewelry, but I’ve asked him to wear a wedidng band. He’s tentatively agreed because he knows I feel strongly about it.

    My Fiance does not want to wear one.  He works with his hands and they are constantly filthy.  He said he would be afraid it would get messed up or lost.  We got him one anyways and he says he will wear it on the weekends.  And that’s ok with me!

    My husband loves wearing his, he started wearing it the day we got it which was a couple weeks before the wedding! 🙂

    my husband was standing under the arch with the minister in front of us and we hadnt even been married 20mins asking to take his ring off – he hates it and not worn it since the ceremony.  he is a scuba instructor so we had it melted down so he now has a custom shark tooth fitting that he wears on a leather strap as a necklace, he never takes it off and it cost 3 times as much as my wedding band

    i voted no, it doesn’t matter to me, because being that i won’t be able to wear mine often due to work (im a baker/pastry chef) and im not going to put it on just to wear around the house alone at night (FI works nights), i don’t feel if i don’t wear mine often i should make him.  But, he has expressed great enthusiasm to wearing a wedding ring, we even talked about getting him an engagement ring : )

    I would like Fiance to wear his, and he said he will.  He chose a titanium one as its lightweight and he usually wears no jewellery at all but said he is fine wearing that as it doesn’t feel like much on his finger.

    I wouldn’t have minded if he didn’t want to wear it tho, my dad has never worn his ring as he is a builder and it can be too dangerous with machinery etc but he keeps it in his bedside table.  So I grew up with it not being weird that men don’t necessarily wear one.

    I used to see this as a by the situation kinda thing, and strangly eneough it was my Fiance that changed my mind. I casually mentioned a board I was reading one night about how this girls Fiance did not and would not even have a ring, mainily because of his job.

    His resonce to this was: There is never any excuse for a man not wearing his wedding band. Yes some of us will have to take it off for work, but every man should own one and wear it at all times unless for safty reasons he can not for a short period of time. And after listening to his explanation of it, I compleatly agree 100 and 10%.

    I voted Yes, we bought his ring on Saterday and I had butterflies. He told me that he was never taking it off again, so sweet (he has his moments!) Lol, but I am keeping it safe till the wedding 🙂

    i don’t know why, but women seems to develop crushes on my Fiance quite easily. so yeah… he’d better be wanting to ward them off with a band around his finger.

    i think that it is very important. the wedding rings are a big part of the wedding ceremony and then represent your committment. both people should wear them all the time that it’s possible

    Yes, it’s very important to me that he wears his ring once we get married. Obviously I wouldn’t want him to if it was in a situation that it wasn’t safe to, but in regular everyday situations yes I want him wearing it.

    It is important to me that Fiance wears his wedding band after we’re married.

    I fully understand some men not wanting to wear theirs when they have certain jobs that will cause the ring to get damaged but I don’t think there’s really an excuse to not wear it on off hours.
