Do you still wear your wedding ring? Do you always wearing it? How is important your wedding ring? Is it a big deal not to wear it? For me wedding ring is a precious thing. I am not married but i guess it's an important thing too. How about you? Sometimes i observed, There are some married man when they out from there house. They get off their wedding ring from there finger. And wear it again before they arrive to their house. Oh gosh! what's the meaning of this? Hey guys? are you like this? well, its your free will to tell..i think better not!

I have been married 4 years, but my husband and I have been together since 1995. We have wedding rings and we both wear ours. Before we were married however, I was one of those that didn't want wedding rings. I think he was also, but now he tells me how he would feel naked without it on. I trust him enough and I think it makes a man more attractive to have one on! He thinks this is true because he gets a lot of ladies attention even with it on. Right now, I am without my rings because I just had a baby and it still doesn't fit!

Yeah, I still wear my wedding rings. I think its very important, because it reminds you everyday that your married to the person you love. I too feel naked without them, it doesn't look right, if I don't have them on. I had to take my engagement ring to the jeweler one time to get it fixed and they had it for a week, it felt so wierd and looked wierd not wearing it, I almost didn't want to leave it there...lol. My husband doesn't wear his most of time, because in his line of work he says that he would either smash it or get it all messed up, he's a mechanic, so his hands get banged up all the time. But he will wear it if we're going out or something...

P.S. My uncle told me one time, and he's a minister, that the gold band symbolizes a never ending circle of love, its a comittment to someone you love.

yeah, your uncle is right and i know about it. It's depend on the person how they will give a thing with value especially that thing is a part and a symbol of one of the important and wonderful that happened to your life. If your a type of person valued the every little or big things in your life then a ring of your marriage is just one of it that need to be treasured with...I appreciated your responsed walijo!

My 5th wedding anniversary is a week away! When we got married we had very cheap rings we purchased off e-bay which turned our fingers green. We soon stopped wearing them. Six months after our wedding I finally purchased a wedding ring for him, and he has not taken it off since. When he does take it off, you can see tan lines from where it was because he wears it all the time. Eight months after our wedding he gave me an engagement ring. I still do not have a wedding ring. I do wear my engagement ring all the time. The only time I've ever taken it off is while I was pregnant and my fingers were too bloated. I don't think the ring itself means too much. What matters is the marriage, but still, the ring is a symbol of the marriage, and should there for be treated with respect.

I think wedding rings are an important part of your marriage if there is not much trust involved.Both me and my husband wore our rings at the beginning of our marriage.Now at 10 years later,neither of us do unless we are attending church or going out to dinner or something similar.We are both comfortable that we are not wearing them everyday.I am scared he will ruin his at work,(this is his third one,lol).And he knows that I am on my third as well,and with cleaning and all the chemicals in the cleaning stuff I dont want to mess mine up.I guess it really just depends on whether it will bother your mate if you wear it everyday or if you dont.I am against those who take them off the moment they walk out the door and then put them back on before they get back home,they are so wrong,lol.

No, I'm not like that man. I only wear off my ring if I'm in house, because I'm with my wife in that time, or do certain job that have a risk losing my ring. But if I went out from my house with or without my wife, I wear it. When I go without my wife, the ring may symbolize that my wife still with me. If I went out with my wife, it's also symbolize that the woman beside me is my wife.

Ozzeth, please do not get disappointed if I tell you that I do not wear my wedding ring. In fact I do not like wearing any kind of ring in any of fingures. I do not feel comfortable wearing any ring. I have kept the wedding ring safely in a locker. However, for a woman, to wear a wedding ring is a matter of pride and I find most of the newly married woman wear it in our city. You must wear it, as and when you get married....LOL! Dpk So when are the wedding bells going to ring for you......??

I always wear my wedding ring. I take it off to apply lotion or to clean it. But, on an everyday basis I wear it. My husband wears his every day as well. Sometimes he takes his off to do a medical procedure but then he puts it back on. When he is deployed he has to take it off once in awhile too. This is because of safety reasons. If the soldiers fall into the wrong hands; the less information the enemy has the better obviously. He rarely takes his ring off either though.

Yeah, I still wear it. I'm a newlywed. My husband doesn't believe in symbolism and he's non-traditional. He's not a fan of the ring because it's just a ring and the ring knows nothing, only he knows what it really means. He wears it, though.

My husband doesn't wear his band because he can't wear it at his job cause it would be dangerous. My rings don't fit right now due to weight gain. When our son was living with us, he was stealing from us, so we put all our jewlery in our safety deposit box. When we go home on holiday for a month he wears his ring. If I lose the weight before we go this year I will be wearing mine. I don't want to resize it again because it has been done twice already.
