“With this ring, I thee wed,” said the groom.
I always thought a wedding ring signified that you have found a loving partner, a friend with whom you can share the rest of your life and therefore you wear and display it proudly. I know most women, take great pride in flashing their carats around, and making sure everyone takes notice, especially if it’s a huge rock. I remember wearing my own engagement ring (before I sold it) and made sure everyone took notice.
If you’re going to spend thousands of dollars on an engagement ring, wedding bands, a wedding, reception and honeymoon, but then turn around and NOT wear your wedding ring in public, then what’s the point? But men, nowadays, it seems like some of them use it as a decoration for their car’s glove compartment.
Chances are, if you’re a single woman, and you come across a man, usually the first thing you check for is a band on his finger. Right? No band typically means the man isn’t married…right? Basically that man is fair game, until he tells you otherwise. Who are you to assume that a ringless man is a married man?
Why would a man not wear his wedding ring in public? Is it too bulky? It flashy? Too tight? Is he a cheating ass cheater? School me, because an inquiring minds would like to know. If I was married, and found out my husband PURPOSEFULLY would remove his wedding ring, when he left his house, and I happened to find out, I would surely question his motives in doing so.
Women, what would you do if you found out your husband didn’t wear his ring in public? Would you question his motives? Faithfulness? Men (the few that do read & lurk the site ), why would you not wear your wedding ring in public?
