Prince William Won't Wear a Wedding Ring. Does Your Husband?

I have a secret: My husband doesn't wear his wedding ring. The reason why is two-fold: First, about a month into our marriage, he lost it. Then, he bought a new one, but a size too big. It's one of those things we look at on the dresser every now and then and say, "Oh yeah, we really need to take care of that."

I know how all this sounds, and you're probably wondering if it bothers me. Truth be told... a little. But really only because I think he looks sexy when he wears it, and I miss seeing it on him. In fact, I told my husband before we got married that he -- a man who doesn't even wear a watch -- only needed to wear the ring for three months, and if he didn't like having it on, he didn't have to wear it at all. I don't need to see a ring on his finger to know he's mine, that he loves me, or even in the vain hope it will fend off misguided admirers, because lets face it, a round piece of silver or gold won't exactly stop a man from cheating. 

So I understand both sides who are equally up in arms and shrugging their shoulders about the fact that Prince William won't wear a wedding ring after he marries Kate Middleton April 29. His reason? "It's simply down to personal preference," a palace aide says. Middleton, meanwhile, will wear a band made from a lump of Welsh gold owned by the royal family.

So dear readers, I wonder what you think about Prince William opting not to wear a wedding ring. Does your husband or partner wear a wedding ring, and if not, how do you feel about it?
