I have them off more in the house putting on handcream, cooking something messy or cleaning the dreaded toilet but I always make sure that I wear them out of the house! If I forget I will turn around and come home and get them.

While sentimental, wedding rings and engagement rings, like all jewelry, are just pieces of metal and gemstones. How often someone wears them is of little importance.

I wear mine whenever I go out but I wouldn’t care if Darling Husband chose not to. My dad has never worn a wedding ring in his life and my parents remain happily married. So its not a big deal for me.

I think it’s understandable if you have something really delicate and impractical for everyday wear.  Or if you have something really flashy that could prove dangerous.

I take mine off very rarely,only when putting on handcream or similair. I dont think Darling Husband has even taken his off yet!

I sometimes don’t wear mine outside if I am going out for quick errands especially now that it is getting warmer because my fingers swell and they are hard to get off and hurt.

If someone purposely takes them off so people don’t think they’re married (like when going to a bar), then I have a problem with it. If you forget your ring, run out the door with no time, or simply want to be comfortable when going to the store, it’s not that big of a deal, at least IMO.

I don’t leave the house without my e-ring except to go to the gym (I take boxing classes, and hitting the bags just isn’t comfortable with my ring on, although some women do).  I don’t think I’d feel comfortable leaving the house without it- even going to the gym without it feels bizarre.

I don’t question people who don’t wear them though, either- I know lots of guys especially who are happily married but don’t wear rings, and have girlfriends who just forget to put them on occasionally.

@DeathByDesign:  I agree.  I don’t really think it’s a big deal if you go out to a bar and you don’t want to wear your e-ring b/c you’re afraid of losing it.  It doesn’t matter how often you wear the ring as long as your intentions are innocent.  Now if you were going out and taking your e-ring off because you wanted to “act single” or flirt with guys, I think that’s wrong and inappropriate.  My ring is probably off more than it is on, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love it and my FH!

I love my rings, but I rarely wear them while in the house and neither does Darling Husband. 

I always try to remember to wear them when i leave the house.  Darling Husband often forgets to wear his, and i’ve got a friend who always gasps when she hears that, but it doesn’t bother me one bit.  I agree with PP, it doesn’t mean we love eachother any less, and neither of us are doing it purposefully so that people will think we’re not married.

I always wear my ring outside of the house, but as soon as I come home for the night they come off, usually because I’m going to start doing laundry or cleaning or if I workout. The only time I don’t wear them out is if I’m going to the gym.

The only place I go where I won’t purposely go back to get them if I forget is to my mom’s house. If I left for a day at work or a night out without my rings I’d feel naked! Darling Husband sometimes forgets and doesn’t really seem to care that much when he does lol.

Personally, I do like to wear mine 24/7 but only because they mean so much to ME. I wouldn’t feel like I was doing anything wrong by not wearing them…It might feel a bit weird and I don’t know that I’ll ever make a habit out of it, but I feel like I’m no less married without it, and that not many people look at me and say “oh you are married” or “oh you are single” I think fewer people even notice the rings than we think.
