  • I love to wear one ...for me it shows I am proud to be married and shows my lady I am willing to show everyone that my heart and soul belongs to her ...pressured?..no not by a long shot..honoured is more like it
  • I'm sure lots of men like wearing them. Mine for instance can't as it is a hazard in his line of work. I don't wear mine either but thats just my personal preference.
  • I have a male relative that was building a tree house for his son. He slipped, grabbed for a branch, and caught his wedding ring on a smaller branch sticking out. He just about lost his finger. Had it sewed to his stomach for weeks in order for skin to graft. It was such an awful injury that I asked my husband not to wear his any more. He wears it only when we go out.
  • My hubby likes his! No, really. I just asked him. He likes his. He even has a certain way the ring HAS to be facing (it has an engraved design)
  • My hubby liked wearing his more than I liked wearing mine
  • Honestly I know I will probably get some negative feedback from the ladies for this but I don't really care. A wedding ring means absolutely crap. If your man's got cheatin on his mind he is not gonna let a wedding ring stop him from doing the deed. I honestly don't see what the big freakin fuss is over wearring a piece of jewelery that has absolutely no meaning behind it other than to show to the world that you are taken. If a man truly and honestly loves his wife whether or not he wears a stupid piece of jewelery he will not stray no matter how great the temptation. I am not married but if I was I certainly would not need to wear a stupid piece of jewelery to remind me that there is someone who I have made a lifetime comittment to love and cherish only them as I said in the beginning a cheater will not let a stupid piece of jewelery stop him from screwing someone who is not his wife.
  • All three of my husbands have worn matching rings. They never complained, so I assume because they wanted to. Current Hubby (of 32 years and still going strong)loves the wedding rings I designed for us, and the 'occasional' one also.
  • No problem here. The only reason a man would not want to wear his wedding band is he has fallen out of love with his wife or he is on the make or both. The wedding band is suppose to be sacred and is to most men and women.
  • I like to wear mine because 1) I like the look of it on my hand, and 2) it tells others I'm happily married. Actually I wear two bands----both solid platinum----on each hand, my wedding band on my left hand, and a simple one on my right. I don't feel any pressure to wear a band----when I was single, I wore a band on my left hand because I liked it and because it didn't get in the way (I'm right handed). I find it funny how people automatically think you're married just because you're wearing a ring on your left hand. In other cultures, it doesn't mean anything. :)
  • My husband wear a cheap $14 dollar ring we got from walmart that turned his finger green for the first month or so. He likes it ok, I guess, but we are both looking forward to when se can get our actually wedding bands made. I'm still wearing my engagement ring as my wedding band.
  • I wear it with pride and passion. I also beat the living snot out of it because I'm always doing things with my hands. I've learnt to take it off before I commence work, but the scars are there.
  • My husband likes wearing his. There are times when he's working that it's not convenient to wear it, like when operating certain heavy equipment or when doing massage therapies, but puts it right back on when he's done. I've never asked him to.
  • My husband does. He lost his about a month ago ( found it later that day ) and he said he felt sick /naked without it. I have put on some weight so mine doesn't fit but I'm working on that.
  • Both my husband and I hardly ever wear them.It doesn't bother me if he doesn't wear his.We're well aware that we are married and I've found that wearing a ring is no deterrent against someone hitting on you.
  • Hi Susan! great to see you! You know, after 19 years, both of ours are long gone...between baseball with the kids, gardening, planting, escalating, etc., they're either on our property or at the in-laws homes in the Berkshires!!! We do wear identical Tibetan rings as a sing of bonding and I do so happily. :)
  • If I were to get married; I would be comfortable wearing one:)
  • Mine belonged to my Wifes Father. She put it on my hand at our Wedding, and it has never been taken off since that moment. That was almost 28 years ago. I imagine I would have to have it cut off now, if it had to come off.
  • I keep it next to my bed. Since I find most things added to the outside of my body irritating, I decided to commit to a 'jewelry-free' life. Working in electronics also means it would have to come off a lot anyway.
  • It is symbolic of the covenant you have with your wife. So i take great pleasure in wearing it.
  • I wear it all the time, I only remove it when I work on high voltage or high current electrical stuff. Even then I have it in my pocket. Taking it off wouldn't fool anyone because of the indent on my finger.
  • I dislike wearing mine for a pragmatic reason. I work in an industry where I can get a ring snagged fairly easily and thereby suffer serious injury. Since the shape of my fingers prevents any well-fitting ring from being removed without MUCH effort (I have thin fingers with thick knuckles) I chose my ring specifically for it's low profile and snag-resistant curvature. It's a simple, snug-fitting, scratch-resistant 14K gold band. I love it for what it symbolizes, but every once in a while I hate it for impeding my dexterity or getting snagged. At least I still have all ten fingers though... for now.
  • I think it is a show of respect to one's wife when the husband wears a wedding band. One exception..if your guy is an auto mechanic, works with machinery or tools, he must not wear it..it can cause great harm if it gets caught up in the machinery. Other than that, I would think your guy would be proud to show he is "taken"! :)
  • My father never wore one. My parents were married for 40 years when he passed away. I hated wearing it. It bothered me when I worked and when I played sports. If I get re-married I will not wear one again.
  • I don't think there is anything sexier than a man that wears a wedding ring! It just shows that they are committed and not afraid to show it. (I hope that doesn't come off as me trying to pick them up, I just think its adorable and honorable!)
  • A wedding ring is a material thing that has no true meaning. Most cultures don't even have the tradition. I won't be labeled with a ring or tattoo. My relationship transcends any material thing, including a ring. That is just one reason I refuse to wear one.
  • i think that the guy should definitly where is wedding ring, it shows is love an apreciation towards me when hes places an that hes taken. a man that refuses to wear there ring i would have to question there love. but i can see why some cant wear it all day
  • I like wearing mine, it matches my belt. For those whose jobs make wearing rings dangerous, try getting a stone ring. They don't conduct electicity and will snap rather than yank your finger off. I know this because mine did, just like it was supposed to.
  • My husband loves his and never takes it off. I am still finding it very odd to wear mine.
  • I've always been very happy to wear a wedding ring. Why would you be afraid or unwilling to publicly demonstrate your commitment to your partner?
  • In seventeen years I've had.... 4 rings (if i'm not mistaken). For various reasons they met thier demise but it was never because I was trying to get rid of them. It just happened (absolutely true). I don't really care for how it feels on my finger butI'd wear one if I had it I suppose. In seventeen years I have an probably worn a ring (accumulated time) for about six months. If I really cared for my partner, not only would I wear one but but I would insist on it.
  • I'm a mechanic, so I have a pretty good reason not to wear a wedding band (especially at work), but I still do wear one. I'll take it off temporarily if it presents a safety issue, but it always goes right back on. So what if it gets a little bit beaten up? It will survive, just like my marriage.
  • yes I like wearing a wedding band. No I do not feel pressure from anyone including my wife to wear one.
  • my exwife welded mine around my neck as a collar
  • My husband loves wearing his ring. It shows that he has someone he loves. As for me. I dont mind wearing it. I love it. but I am not so used to wearing jewelry so I just wear it when I go out of the house or something.
  • My wedding band is on. My finger is too fat to slide it off. My last massage therapist couldnt get it off. Women dont look at wedding rings, if they do, it doesnt bother them. I have to say, I am married, then they say, oh, i didnt see your ring. I am not a carnival man. a fairs is not my thing. that was a joke. i have given up on sexual liasons. usually one ends up single and alone after one fling. so no thankyou.
  • My husband wears his, he is going to get a band tattooed on his finger when he gets home because once he starts flying he can't wear a ring, so that way he won't be able to take it off even if he wanted to.
  • i like wearing my wedding ring. it makes me feel like i belong to someone. just like my dog collar makes me feel like i belong to my wife.
  • I never took mine off when I was married. Never even realized it was there. Took about eight months for the tan line to go away once I said goodbye. Ironically, that's about when I first hooked up again.
  • My husband has not worn his in over eight years. He has a weird phobia of jewelry. I can't even let my rings touch him.
  • I want to wear one
  • Any guy who doesnt want to wear his wedding band or feels pressured to do so should not have become a husband.
  • I dont like rings. In the UK, I think the health and safety will disallow rings in some jobs... but maybe I am wrong. I had a whopper of a 22K band with diamond and I lost it because I keep fidgeting with it.. found it.. kept it aside in a safe place.. wore it again when my wife forced me and then lost it again.. 4 years ago.. never to be found again. Moral of the story (wives should listen to the hubby more :-) )
  • If I were married, I would be more than happy to wear my wedding band all the time. Mostly out of commitment, but partly because I have a habit of losing or forgetting rings if I take them off.
  • Men should love wearing there wedding band. They sould wear it with pride. They sould be proud to let everyone know they are married to there wife.
  • I wanted to wear mine, yes, i was proud to.... but it did get physically annoying sometimes, so i sometimes took it of while i was doing things...... Then it got lost..... :(
  • My husband wears his ring most of the time but there are days when he forgets it but he tells me he likes to wear his ring because when he looks down a it he thinks of me.
  • Neither I nor my husband wear our wedding rings. He got us a set a few days before we got married (because his mom decided we HAD to have them), after we had discussed not having any. But later we had them sized, and wore them. I had a child since, so with the weight gain mine doesn't fit. My husband's first and second ones have both been bent out of shape, because of his mechanicing job, so we just dont wear them. It doesn't bother us, because we know we are married, and that we love each other. And if anyone asks, we tell them the truth. I trust him, and he trusts me.
  • I got in argument with my wife one day when I forgot it, we were just doing errands. I told her it is rediculous to hold me to such a high standard. It shows her lack of trust in me. I trust her with all of my heart and when she forgot to wear her ring to work one day and she played if off sweetly I totally accepted her and didn't even care. You can say it's a guy girl thing, but it's a lack of trust thing and for some reason my wife struggles with that and I think most women do. It's a shame, women get away with their insecurities, I know it's hard, but it's still wrong and unfair.
  • I hate wearing one because it develops into a rash on my skin.So I do not wear any jewellery next to my skin.
  • I never got used to mine and my wife and I just celebrated our 37th. She doesn't complain and I don't really know how she "feels" about it, but, when we go dancing, I put on a glitzy, 25th-anniversary ring we bought. On cruises, I wear a super-clitzy CZ on my ring finger... it's absolutely gorgeous and I get a lot of second looks on it. I used to work with electrical stuff and didn't wear one for safety reasons. I just got used to not wearing one.
  • My husband wears his on the weekend. He can't wear it during the week because of work. I get a little bugged if he doesn't put it on Friday night. I'll go get it for him so I guess I am pressuring him, but he doesn't seem to be bothered.
  • A man should be proud to wear a wedding ring. Any man that wont wear his wedding ring wont wear it because they dont want anyone or somebody to know that they are married.
  • yes most men are happy and proud to wear a wedding ring,i love the fact my husband wears one,it shows he is commited to you.
  • When we got married, I told my husband that I didn't want him to wear one, (because he has a habit of losing things, especially if they're not larger than a vehicle), but he insisted upon wearing one anyway. He hasn't lost it yet! Yay!
  • Married now for 36 years I can tell you my husband does not always wear his ring. He works with wood, chemicals and power tools where it would be very dangerous. He is not always able to put them on after work. Over the years, because of age and weight change, he couldn’t wear them now unless they were resized.
  • I don't wear one. My wife doesn't wear my name and I don't wear her ring. We are free and independent.
  • My husband likes his wedding ring and never takes it off, mine is abit loose tho so i dont waer it when i clean/ garden etc... I like people knowing im married, that i have comitted myself to the man i love.
  • Its a lot of pressure. If he doesn't half of his things are gone legally.
  • No. I don't feel any pressure, I just don't wear it. We agreed that I won't force her to wear anything she doesn't feel comfortable wearing, and she won't force me to wear anything I don't feel comfortable wearing.
  • I like wearing my wedding band. It is a symbol of the covenant I entered into with my wife and God to be faithful and to never give up. I do not feel presured to wear one, in fact sometimes I even forget I have it on and have been busy working when I notice it and it reminds me that there is a special someone in this lousy world, who thinks I am pretty special.
  • I cannot speak for my husband, but I know that one a recent trip, he left it at home and went by a shop in the airport to purchase a temporary band. It was really sweet and most definately showed me that he places high value on our relationship.
