I have a question for you married men out there.
Do you wear your wedding ring? If yes, why? If no, why?
Link Posted: 12/8/2003 11:17:40 PM EDT
Well, I'm not married..... but my good friend is, and does not wear his ring while at work, simply because the risks involved with having a metal ring on while working around furnaces...(by furnaces, I mean metal melting furnaces, not the HVAC kind)

I wear mine all the time. I really shouldnt wear it at work though. A guy de-gloved his finger last year when he fell off a wing and tried to grab for it to catch himself. He caught his ring on a rivet that wasnt all the way in and ripped the skin clean off. He should have just kept his hands to himself cause he was wearing a harness...... Rob P.S. Sorry for the small hijack, hope I helped....

Every minute of every day. It's a symbol of a vow I made.

Yes I do, but not at work. Too much chance of the afore mentioned "De-Gloved" finger.

Do you know how many guns you could buy with that money....oh sorry Nope, get a nasty scaly ring under it not sure if allergic or what but its no-good

Yes I wear mine everyday. I rarely take it off. I am not sure why, exactly. It just seems like the thing to do. YMMV

I wear it all the time every day. My wedding vows are in effect 24/7, and the ring is a good reminder of them. I'd probably feel naked without it.

The only time I take mine off is when I am at work (due to the formentioned aircraft de-gloving thing). Other than that I have it on to show the love and devotion to my wife (that and because I have lost 2 already and she said that she would cut off Mr. Happy if I lost this one [:X*])

I've been married near 22 years and never had one. I just don't care for jewelry.

We went out and got the heaviest, thickest, ring we could find and I have not taken it off since. It has been on my finger for 4 years, 6 months, 3 days, 15 hours, and 49 minutes. It is a commitment thing.

I am not married, but when I am I will probably wear a ring any time my hands arent in danger of getting injured. I want a titanium ring!
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 9:12:47 AM EDT
No I don't wear mine. I don't like jewelry. Wifey has no problem with it.

I never wear my wedding ring, I work in steel fabrication. It is too easy to get that ring cought on a piece of material even with gloves on. So I can say I like to de-glove myself, not be de-gloved by a ring, My Wife understands this and is ok with it but at first it did bother her.

I wear mine every day. I just wouldn't feel right taking it off. Another plus is that our wedding date is engraved on the inside and I can always take it off to see when I need to buy an anniversary gift. No excuses to forget with that.

I wear mine 24/7. It’s titanium with a “comfort” bevel and a dull brushed finish. It weighs nothing and is very un-obtrusive. I do consider the risk of finger injury, but I have never felt the need to take it off yet.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 9:44:37 AM EDT
It's the only ring I wear. I do take it off when I go to bed at night, and when I'm lifting free-weights at the gym, but it's otherwise on the finger. Why? I guess it's due to the vow I took before God and a couple hundred witnesses.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 9:46:37 AM EDT
Nope. I work in electrical panels and around moving equipment. I don't even wear a watch.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 11:00:16 AM EDT
I dont wear one or own one. My wife doesnt mind or so she says. I told her I would get a tattoo on that finger that said "I LOVE SHARON" she said no. I am not kidding, if she was the slightest bit put off by me not wearing one I would do it in a minute. I dont see the need, I dont like or wear any type of jewerly or watch. I have always worked around finger removal stuff so part of it is safety. The other part is trust [b] She trusts me [/b] I know women who make sure there property is marked she is not one.

Rings are forbidden at work due to reasons listed above. I got tired of putting mine in my pocket everyday at work that I no longer wear it. I was afraid of losing it.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 11:34:52 AM EDT
Nope, I don't even know where it is........ Oh yea, wife thinks it's thru my nose
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 11:52:59 AM EDT
niether of us do. Mona is allergic to most jewelry and i can't wear mine at work. It's just a ring. The commitment is in the heart not the trinket. mike

Don't wear mine because I worked servicing computer equipment. Later on when I became a manager I still didn't wear it. Don't really care for jewelry. The Wife is ok with that. We have been together for 25yrs. BobK

I don't wear mine; I had it cut off once and I figured that should be a clue. I wear no jewelry, though; dangerous.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 3:26:45 PM EDT
I bought one and wore it for the wedding, but never since. Why? My fingers are very short and they're [i]webbed[/i]. If I put a ring on, it will immediately start cutting into the webbing and I start to bleed. Seriously. My wife understands this, and I put it on for our anniversary.
