  • No opinion, unless I know why...
  • I don't see a real problem with it as long as the husband is doing right by the wife, as in like not lying and telling someone he isn't married so he can cheat on the wife.
  • i know many guys who don't wear rings...so the true question might be how do YOU feel about him not wearing a ring (assuming you are the wife). I think it depends on the husband too...if he is very flirtatous and stuff...then i'd worry that he is not wearing a ring...but a close friend of mine's husband doesn't wear a ring and he is crazy about her. so it may not be a bad thing.
  • She did not take his name, wanting to keep her independence and not be labeled as belonging to someone. He does not wear a wedding ring, to not be labeled as belonging to someone. No extramarital affairs involved.
  • Some jobs its not safe to ware any kind of rings for safty reasons , in any event im sure it has nothing to do with being married to you
  • It really does depend on the reason why. My dad never wore a wedding ring, but that was because he watched his best friend get his finger ripped off in a sporting accident due to wearing a ring.
  • My wife and I don't wear rings. I have hypersensitivity issues, joint problems, swelling, chronic pain, arthritis-like symptoms, and irritable limb. I feel very uncomfortable wearing the ring so I never wear it. My wife lost a bunch of weight and hers slipped off somewhere and we haven't seen it since. We agree that marriage is a tiny bit more than a thin strip of metal around one of your fingers. Also, I used to get hit on FAR more when I wore it. The moment I took it off women left me alone. I like it better that way. I hate knowing that women are flirting with me just because they're jealous of another woman's joy.
  • i would not like that but some guys dont like to. Its annoying and uncomfortable
  • It doesn't bother me. I have many friends that are married without rings. I choose to proudly wear mine though.
  • I wouldn't notice and I really don't care. My father never wore a ring. I hated wearing it, always seemed to bang on something.
  • Depends on why he doesn't. He could have a very good reason for not wanting to, like his line of work. Many construction workers or heavy equipment operators will not wear them as it's too dangerous to lose a finger. That's fine with me.
  • Where is he supposed to wear this ring?
  • Some guys don't want to lose it and others just don't want to wear it. My dad was married for 22 years and never once wore one. It's a matter of preference I wouldn't take offense to it.
  • Assuming you merely want him to wear the ring on his ring finger, I would say that if it isn't a quirky habit of his to not wear it or some company safety policy, I would say that he wants to be viewed as single to women.
  • Does he have a good reason for not wearing it? if not then don't you think hes being a little disrespectful? it is a symbol of your love after all.
  • I'd say first of all make sure it has to do with not feeling comfortable or joint problems like others have said. But also why would your husband not want to wear it? If he is true and honest then I wouldn't want to suspect anything, but if there has been problems before try and get some answers and reasons why he doesn't want to wear the ring which represents your love and marriage.
  • it would bother me.. my boyfriend daydreams about wearing a ring just because it would be a symbolism of our relationship. it's very flattering and makes me feel special that he has such strong feelings to wear one
  • Good for him.
  • A player!!
  • Unless you're a doctor, you better be wearing that ring!
  • he doesnt want any females to know hes married
  • Send him to the gallows!
  • Alot of men actually don't like to wear jewelry... I would have a good talk with him about how you feel about it and make him understand why you want him to wear it. It worked for me, my husband is a mechanic and due to his work he didn't wear it but he made the effort on the weekends after our conversation.
  • some one is keeping their options open
  • Wearing rings is something that a gentleman is careful about. Worn on the little finger a signet ring, engraved with one's coat of arms is acceptable, but precious little else is. So you may have married a sprig of the English aristocracy. Alternatively, your husband might be the kind of man that my father was. He took the view that gentlemen do not wear jewellery. For myself, I am a soggy romantic with little concern for the niceties of class-based inhibitions, so I am proud to wear my own wedding ring, which comes off only when I am practicing karate. There may be lots of other reasons not to wear a ring: sensitive skin is one. It is probably impossible to cover all of them. I think that it would be premature to conclude that he lacks commitment to you, or that he wants to pretend to be unmarried.
  • Mine never took his off, ever. And now we are going through a divorce. I know couples where the husband just doesn't like jewelry but he is faithful to his wife. It really makes no difference sometimes.
  • In my opinion: He didnt want to get married and still wants to play the field:(
  • It could be a clue that he wants to be a 'player' but I think if that was the case he would just take it off when he was away from his wife. I wouldn't be mad if my s/o didn't want to wear it, he works construction so it would probably get ruined.
  • Some men don't like wearing jewellery, so I wouldn't think anything of a man who chose not to. My father for instance would never dreamt of wearing a ring of any kind, but has been married faithfully (as far as I know) for almost 50 years.
  • If you had a religious ceremony where your rings were "blessed" so to say, then I would say the husband should wear his ring (unless he's got some sort of allergy/physical condition that prevents him from doing so. My husband NEVER EVER wore jewelry of any kind before we married and he now wears his ring 24/7. He never takes it off for anything. I find it to be a true symbol of how committed he is to the vows we took. My father never wore his, he considers it to be un-manly...coincidentally or not, he has been less than faithful at times to my mother.
