    Mine works in a warehouse so he has to take it on and off. To be honest I couldn’t care less.

    We aren’t married yet and Fiance still wears his around the house. That being said, my dad is one of the most devoted husbands in the world and he hasn’t worn his ring as long as I can remember. I do expect Fiance to wear his in the beginning but if it is uncomfortable or feels weird (FI doesn’t wear any other jewelery) then I woudn’t be upset.

    Absolutely it would bother me. But, I don’t think I will have that problem because he’s pretty excited to be able to wear his ring. It’s gorgeous too…we picked out a really cool looking guys ring for him…ultimately it was his decision,  but he wanted me to like it too.

    I knew from the moment we met that he would never be a ring wearing guy.  His father doesn’t wear his and he doesn’t wear any jewelry.  He wore it the day of the wedding and then took it off the next day.  It doesn’t bother me at all!! I don’t need a ring on his finger to make me trust him.

    It would bother me. Nothing to do with trust or showing that he is taken or anything like that. I trusted him 100% for four years before we got married when he didn’t wear a ring. It’s a symbol of my love for him and to him from me, so if he couldn’t see the importance of that and just left it in a box, yes I would be a little hurt. Luckily he started wearing his like two weeks before our wedding because he was so excited to finally be gettibg married! 🙂 He wore it until the day I bought him a new one (his old one bent, so we got tungsten second time around) and has been wearing that since.

    Meh.  I don’t know if it would really bother me unless he deliberately chose to not wear his ring, if he just didn’t put it on one day I doubt I’d be upset (sometimes I don’t like to wear jewelry either, like when I’m hanging out at home or going to/from working out).  If he never wore it at all though I’d probably be a little disappointed, not much else to be honest.  He gets angry when I don’t wear a ring on my left hand though!

     It would bother me! My Fiance never wears jewelry because he works on cars, but when we get married he wants a wedding band. He actually showed me a website that he wants me to buy one from!

    @linnylou_88:  Yes, it would. Though my SO wears his promise ring (which is basically just a men’s band, I’m sure others have used it as a wedding band) ALL THE TIME. Like, he literally never takes it off. Not for showers, dishes, nothing.

    Yes, primarily because I know his job doesn’t make wearing a ring inconvenient.

    My dad never wore his during my lifetime before he retired. He was an OBGYN and took it off to scrub up and forgot to put it back on (it was returned to him).  going forward he was too afraid of losing it to ever wear it. After he retired he always wore it. 

    Fiance works in a factory so I would understand if he did not wear it at workmen however I would be truly disappointed and sad if he does not wear it at all other times.

    @linnylou_88:  No, my Dad never wore his ring when I was growing up. He worked for General Motors. My Fiance will likely not wear his ring that much due to his work and that doesn’t bother me.

    We’re married either way, it doesn’t matter what jewelry he’s wearing.

    My DH is not a jewlery guy and works with his hands. He still wears his ring everyday all day. He took it off once when he had a blister from it. I commented on it and he put it back on. It’s never been taken off since

    Hell yeah it would bother me. I’m pretty old school when it comes to that. I think it’s disrespectful to the marriage if you don’t wear your ring. That’s just me though. To each their own 🙂

    Yes because I paid for it. I didn’t pay for it to sit in a box. Technically he shouldn’t wear it at work – and I tell him not to – but he refuses to take it off. 

    It’s a symbol of our marriage to the outside world. If a guy is able to wear it, I don’t understand why he wouldn’t want to. I’m not a jewellery person but my ring is so much more than that.

    I voted no, because my Fiance never wears rings so I almost don’t expect him to. 

    That being said,  one of the first times I dragged him into a jewelry store to try to show him what I like, he found a ring he liked.
