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?

We exchanged rings at our ceremony. I wear my ring but dh doesn't. It doesn't bother me anymore,, I wish he would wear it but he won't. He doesn't like jewerly and I feel it's his choice. I have no worries about his not wearing it, with or without rings our marriage is solid and loving. (32 yrs).

My dh and I both wear our rings regularly. DH is an electrician, so depending on what he's doing he won't wear it to work because it will conduct electricity. But he and I both have tungsten bands that we wear doing pretty much everything else since they don't scratch, dent or damage easily. Occasionally when we forget to put our rings on we joke that we are "single" that day. Since it's the only piece of jewelry that he wears (doesn't even wear a watch) I consider myself lucky that he wears it as much as he does :)
