My Fiance wears his ring all the time, and rarely ever takes it off. I like that, and it’s cute to me, but at the same time, if he didn’t want to wear one, I wouldn’t care. It’s just a piece of metal. Wearing it doesn’t make a husband any better or worse than a husband who doesn’t wear it. My Future Father-In-Law has never worn a ring since I’ve known him (I don’t think he even has one?), and he’s one of the best husbands I’ve ever met.

I assume they don’t like rings/jewelry. That’s the case for the men I know who don’t wear them. Not everything is nefarious.

swirlyclover86:  That’s cute, and I”m glad you found a not-asshole, but that doesn’t have anything to do with a ring. It could have easily been the other way around, where your ex wore a ring and you current didn’t.

I don’t wear my ring when I travel (I don’t want to lose it or have it stolen). We’re not married yet, but I don’t care one way or another if my Fiance wears his ring. It’s not going to make us less married.

Neither of my parents wear their rings. I don’t even know what they look like. Happily married 42 years. I grew up thinking wearing a wedding ring was weird

Fiance already informed me he won’t be wearing his ring at work (he works with his hands, and I don’t even think he’s allowed to wear it). That doesn’t bother me at all.

It would be bother me if I didn’t trust him and thought he was up to something deviant. Lol

mrspinesol:  Actually I think for me the symbolism of my EX-DH not wearing one is the sum of our relationship.  He did not wear it because he didn’t see himself married to me, but he sees me as wholly married to him by insisting I wear a ring. 

It is personal comfort and preference, but I am giving my personal opinon and it does have something to do with wearing a ring.  It’s not just an accessory to ME, but it’s a symbol.  I don’t care what others do, but this is for me and mine.

Kimbalina81:  I feel like it doesn’t “need” to be worn to show that myself or my husband is in a commited relationship, but to us it’s a public display of our commitment, so we always do.

Kimbalina81:  I get that some can’t wear rings for their jobs. My dad can’t wear his at work…but he’s always wearing it the rest of the time. Then there are the guys that don’t wear one because they say they don’t like wearing rings at all.

I can understand I guess…but it’s such an important symbol to me. I’m not married yet…but I would have a hard time dealing with my husband not wanting to wear a wedding ring. My SO wears a ring on his right hand already though so I know he won’t have a problem wearing a wedding band. I don’t care what other men choose to do, as long as their wives are ok with it.

My DH doesn’t even have a wedding ring! He has a “wedding watch” which we picked together and I bought for him and engraved the back with the wedding date, but he hardly ever wears it. He just didn’t want a ring, and I don’t care.

My husband hates wearing any kind of jewelry so he never had a wedding ring in the first place. I don’t think it’s a big deal. Is a man going to forget he’s married just because there’s no ring on his hand?

My dad RARELY wears his wedding band. Only for special occasions really .. he doesn’t like wearing jewelry. My parents have been very happily married for 32 years. When my SO and I get married, he will get a wedding band, but I would honestly be surprised if he wore it on a daily basis. He doesn’t like wearing jewelry either. This doesn’t bother me, and it shouldn’t bother you either (to see ringless married men). Whether or not a man wears a wedding band is no indication of how much he loves his wife.

framarianna:  No. Just no. Has it ever occurred to you that maybe some guys just don’t like wearing jewelry? Ignorance.

I don’t know if my dad even has a wedding band as I’ve never seen him wear one.  He also can’t wear it to work and he doesn’t wear any other jewelry, not even a watch, so I guess I’m used to seeing a guy not wear a ring.  He’s totally comitted to my mom so I don’t think it’s a matter of him not wanting to look like he’s married.  My mom wears her ring 24/7.

If my SO didn’t want to wear one, I would probably be hurt and suggest that he at least try to, but it’s not something I would pick a fight about.

To each his own, but for me when we get married I want him wearing his ring either all the time or at least when he’s out of the house. It’s not  so much of a property, I own him thing, but I’m buying the freaking ring and we’re getting married so I expect him to show that! That’s why this weekend when we get it, since he’s a stock size and can have it that day, I want him to wear it around to see if we need to make it thinner or smaller/larger. I want it to be comfortable for him so he can wear it all the time. He wears watches and a bracelet his grandfather gave him on special occassions, so I don’t think he has a problem with jewelry.
