Is it necessary to wear the wedding ring? How many of you actually wear your wedding ring? Is the wedding ring important for you or you just wear it to represent your status? I have seen several colleagues at my workplace don't wear their wedding rings. They don't even bother as if it's not important to wear the wedding ring after marriage. But I am thinking after I get married one day, I am sure to wear my wedding ring to where I go. For me,wedding ring is important to show respect to our partner and as a sign of commitment. What do you think? Do you agree with me? Please share,thanks.

Hi yenwie, I wore my wedding for the first few weeks only after the wedding ceremony. I dislike to put ring on my finger so I just keep all the jewelry including the ring in the locket. My husband worse still and he took off the ring the night we came back from the wedding dinner. To both of us the wedding rings didn't play the important role in our marriage. We still could get along happily without wearing the wedding ring though our son is in his thirtieth. posting and have a nice day.

I always wear my ring. My husband always wears his ring as well. The ring is to symbolize our special day and our commitment with each other. He never takes off his ring unless there's something he needs to do that would make it dirty or stink. He rares fish, so when he cleans his fish, he takes out the ring, so that it doesn't smell like fish, cause I really hate the fishy smell!! lol.. Or maybe when he's dealing with greasy things. To me, it's up to you whether you want to wear it, wearing the ring or not wearing the ring doesn't mean that you will have cheat on your partner or anything, it is how you believe in your marriage and love your spouse. so whether or not you wear the ring, the ring doesn't stop you from doing anything wrong to the person you marry, it's the person wearing it, or not wearing it. either one..

I only take my rings off when I shower. I guess I take them off sometimes when I sleep. I don't know why anyone would buy them if they weren't going to wear them. I wear mine because I am happy to show people I am married. I do know of some people who take them off for work when they work around machinery and farm equipment. That makes sense to me, but otherwise, I would always wear mine.

I wear my wedding ring all the time, the only time I take it off is when I make meat loaf. My husband does not wear his cause the work that he does the ring can get caught and cut his finger off.

I wear mine all the time. My wife, however, can't wear her's all the time because she has arthritis that will sometimes make her fingers swell too much. So, it really depends on the person.

My husband and I always wear our wedding rings. I think once you get married that ring becomes part of who you are...I have no problem wearing something symbolic to show that I am committed to someone completely. I know their are alot of people who don't wear their rings, other than a safety reason ie: worked with machinery...why wouldn't you want to wear it??

I do agree, I got married 4 months ago and I have never taken off my wedding ring since then. It means alot of me. And lol, it keeps the guys from asking me out. My husband only wears his after he leaves from work, but I can understand because of the type of work he does, I wouldn't want some type of damage to happen to his ring. When we were engaged, I even wore my engagement ring all the time, never taking it off. I just do this to mainly show respect to my husband as well and he wears his to show respect to me.

I personally don't like wearing my engagement ring as the ring itself is over $10000. However I will wear it if it is a special occasion but otherwise I take it off and put it in my jewelry box. There is no disrespect because I don't wear it as he sees that I don't want to loose it. We are trying to find something similar to what he bought me but alot cheaper. So if I do loose it then I will have my actual engagement ring.

I never take my wedding ring off. It is very special and important to me. My husband always wears his too. I think it is important to be proud to show your love and commitment to each other.

I just recently got my wedding ring and we aren't even legally married YET! It's a symbol that we are going to be together for the rest of our lives and we are happy to wear them. When I was married....the first two always wore my ring.
