It is certainly a problem to me. It has been bothering me and I have put it aside for a while. What makes me think of it again is I just created a discussion about cheating and one buddy said "Married men do seem to get hit on more than un-married men, just wear a ring then!!" raises this up again. There were couple times when we went out, people thought we are dating which I didn't blame him because we don't have a ring. One time, we were having a poker break and a guy said I look like a model, when my husband came back to the table, he asked what's going on and the guy said "We were talking about your girlfriend looks like a model." I felt very strange, he didn't stand up and said I'm his wife either. sigh...

I wear a ring which my husband paid a lot of money for. He wore a ring for a couple of weeks after we got married but it bothered him. He could not get used to wearing it. He complained about it bugging him all the time. I finally told him he didn't have to wear it if it bothered him that much. We have been married for 19 years. He is a very trustworthy guy, it doesn't bother me that he does not wear it. I feel better and safer wearing mine though.

I know what it feels and it is true that some people if they don't see the wedding ring they assume that you aren't. Personally we never wear the wedding rings, niether myself nor my husband, not becasue to show that we aren;t married but since both of us hate to wear rings. I only wear it when it I have a special occasion since I hate wearing rings everyday.

That rings are supposed to be just symbolical that you are bonded with another person. Wearing it on a daily basis means you are symbolically married and also to show other people to stay away too if they would just want to be intimate to you. But that is no guarantee that you or him to be faithful for each other. For some couple they preferred not to wear it regularly because they are not used to it, but, for some it is important, there is really no real rule about it and it totally depends on you if you want to wear it or not.

Hi mermaidivy: Is not having a wedding ring part of your culture? If so, then you shouldn't be annoyed, but if not, I would think something is up if he can't put even the least expensive of rings on both you and him. I don't know about anyone else, but if it were me I'd be bothered. Both my husband and I wear rings. To me it's an honor to be his wife, and wearing the ring is a symbol that we have found one another. Take care...

Yes it is very important to me too. I wonder if guys don't want people know they are married... I really doubt it sometimes but I never asked him.
