I don’t think you’re the only one who has a man that doesn’t understand the ring symbolism. In fact, I wouldn’t even say you’re in the minority.

My SO thought that you only wore the engagement ring while you were engaged, and then once you were married, you took it off forever. He jokingly/not so jokingly said, “at least you know for sure I’ve never gotten this far in a relationship before…”  Boys… 🙂

@VickyAurea: Haha! I think my Fiance is still perplexed with the fact that women typically wear two rings, while the man wears one, even though I’ve explained it at least like three times! It just makes me laugh how clueless they can be sometimes.

@VickyAurea: Same here. It was only recently that I learnt that about women and rings. My mother didn’t have an engagement ring so I only ever saw her with a wedding ring.

Silly question to all but I just wanted to make sure I have my facts straight: the engagement ring and wedding ring are both worn on the left hand ring finger right? And men wear their wedding rings on the left hand ring finger as well?

@Miss Circe: Yes, that’s traditionally how they’re worn. Though, I’ve seen lots of other bees say that many countries wear the rings on their right hand ring finger. But, I think in general, that’s how they’re worn in “western” countries.

Darling Husband and I were actually talking about the right hand this evening. At his work, he sees alot of women and men wear their wedding rings on their right hand and was perplexed. I had to explain that it’s a western thing to wear them on their left hand.

I had to explain to my Fiance that the men didn’t get an engagement ring.  He was confused about the whole thing really.

@VickyAurea:I didn’t know there were two separate rings for the longest time! My mom has two wedding bands, and they’re both soldered to her engagement ring, so I always figured it was just one big ring. It wasn’t until my husband and i were talking about getting engaged that I realized there were two!

Haha, yeah, mine didn’t know which finger the engagement ring goes on til about a year ago…and chances are he’s forgotten since then.  Which is why I’ve sent him links and specs of the rings I like.  lol.

@inspiredcreations: honestly, that’s what I’m going to be doing. I hate wearing 2 rings on one finger, and SO said he didn’t want me wearing one on my left, one on my right. so I’ll probably only wear my e-ring for special occasions!
