I’ve always wondered this to! I thought I was the only one.

I’m in love with our e-pics, and I rotate my profile pic all the time with different shots.  It probably drives my friends nuts, but whatever.  FI’s profile is one of him and a extremely expensive and sexy porsche.  I’m keep tellings him to put up our e-pics, but he won’t.  I don’t get it! He looks amazing in our e-pics and the pic he has is pretty sweet, but its not a pro pic.

I sound ridiculous, I’ll hush now Wink

Ah! I had a coworker , a guy who posted a wedding pic of him and wifey together for a week, then changed back to his old profile pic. His wife however has had it for months! ๐Ÿ˜€

I dunno, I’ve noticed actually that ALL the recently married men I have on Facebook changed their profile pictures to a wedding photo!

I don’t know… Maybe guys are just less into photographs? I know my brother changed his pic after he got married, so some guys do it!

D’S profile picture is of us at a baseball game from 3 years ago. It has never changed haha. It doesn’t bother me, I think it’s kind of cute.

My Darling Husband has a wedding picture as his profile pic. I don’t know which one of us changed it but its still up 6 months later (and hes holding my bouquet in the pic haha).

I’ve thought about this too! I have quite a few recently married friends and none of the guys have wedding pictures as their profile pic but all of the ladies do! DH’s profile picture is a picture from our honeymoon but he never had a wedding picture one. I don’t mind ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband hardly ever changes his Facebook profile picture. He’s only had 4 profile pictures since he joined Facebook about 7 years ago.

His current picture is of us parasailing on our honeymoon. I think a lot of guys like “action shots” or “casual pictures” rather than “ooooh, look how we were all dressed up and pretty!”.

(His previous profile pictures were: him holding a shotgun and some dead pheasants, him and the car he bought right after college, and a picture from when we first started dating).

I think it depends on the person. Personally, I rarely ever put a picture of me and my Fiance as my profile picture because it just seems kind of weird to put up a picture of someone other than myself. And my Fiance hasn’t changed his facebook picture in over 2 years, so I doubt he’d be inclined to put up one from our wedding or whatever (we haven’t done engagement pics yet, who knows – maybe those will inspire a change).

It can be a little grating to be constantly reminded of a person’s relationship, and it can also seem weird both to the person and outsiders for a life to be seemingly all about one’s relationship. Perhaps most of these guys you know just prefer to be known as themselves and not themselves-and-the-wife, yannow?

I think some guys just really don’t care as much about their profile pics. My guy had the same profile pic up for over a year and only changed it when a friend teased him saying he looked creepy in it. ๐Ÿ™‚ And he’s so out of it he ended up using my profle pic for his. Friend of ours got married and he changed his profile pic to a pic from his wedding but he’s similar to my guy. He won’t change things unless they’ve been up for a year and is prompted. I’m sure his wife gave him a friendly nudge. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Interesting – because practically all the married men I know changed their pic to a wedding pic after they got married, including my husband!

Darling Husband used to have a wedding photo as his profile pic, but he changed it to a picture of us on Halloween. Mine’s still a wedding photo, but only because I don’t have a better picture of myself.

He changed his picture to one of our e-pics as soon as we got them.  He changed it a few weeks ago to the two of us on Halloween, though.  I have no doubt that he’ll use a wedding picture as his profile pic for a loooooooooong time, though.

@jocember – Your post intrigues me. The part “It can be a little grating to be constantly reminded of a person’s relationship, and it can also seem weird both to the person and outsiders for a life to be seemingly all about one’s relationship.”

I’m curious how a profile picture with someone can be “grating” and “like your whole life is about your relationship”. That’s a perspective I’ve never heard or thought about before.
