For those of you that are engaged or married or plan to be engaged/married in the future, what are your thoughts on wearing your ring(s) all the time. Do you? When do you not? What about your husbands?
I wear both my engagement and wedding band 99% of the time. I sleep with them on, I shower with them on, I exercise with them on (when I exercise which is rare nowadays). The only time I take them off is if I'm doing heavy duty/potentially damaging cleaning or other activity. Or if I'm doing something where I think they might fall off, like on our honeymoon when we went snorkeling. I left my rings in our in-room safe. We met a couple there and the husband's ring had come off and been lost while snorkeling. They had been married less than a week. The wife was not pleased.
I don't usually take my rings off for a number of reasons-
1. I'm afraid if I sit them down the cat will knock them on the floor and use them as toys and I'll never see them again.
2. I'll end up just forgetting to wear them. My coworker often forgets to put her rings back on after she showers in the morning. Her husband finally started hiding her rings as a way to make her remember not to leave them around the house.
3. Kristian spent a lot of money on my rings and I know it would hurt his feelings if I didn't wear them all the time. I know he would secretly think I didn't like them.
I have to say there are days when I'm just not in the mood to wear any jewelry at all including my rings. And there are definitely times when I don't feel like wearing my engagement ring which is bigger and sometimes gets caught on things or banged against something. I'm terrified of the center stone falling out.
My husband wears his ring everyday and like me will only take it off if he's doing something where he thinks it could potentially fall off.
So I'm just curious what other women do.
