Do you and DH wear your rings?

Yesterday on the radio, they were talking about the fact that Prince William will not be wearing a wedding ring after he and Kate Middleton wed later this month.
When I mentioned it to my mom, she said it has always bothered her that my dad doesn't wear his wedding ring. That surprised me. My dad made his living as a mechanic so it could have been dangerous to have a ring on while he was working; if a piece of equipment fell on his hand, it could catch his ring, crush his finger or do even worse damage.
My mom said she understood him not wearing his ring at work but he doesn't wear it when they go out, on vacations or now that he's semi-retired. She said she finally quit reminding him because it's clear that he doesn't want to wear it.
My DH wears his ring most days to work (occasionally he forgets) but he usually takes it off when he gets home in the evening. It doesn't bother me too much when he's not wearing it although I will joke with him that it's not that easy to consider himself "unmarried". LOL
So, does your DH wear a ring on a regular basis? Do you? Is it an issue for either of you?
