Would you be mad or upset if your wife went out without her wedding ring?

BuckeyeMan BuckeyeMan
My wife ran to the store today and forgot to put on her wedding ring and a guy was flirting with her. It happens quite often to be honest. Its not a big deal to be but actually a turn on to me.

Haha I think this is an interesting question. It depends on the situation of course. My husband takes his off while working since he works on ships and I would rather he kept his ring finger attached to his body. If I knew he meant to leave his ring off that would be another story. I wear mine all the time, the band at least, and to tell you the truth it doesn't seem to stop most guys from flirting. I've even been asked to dinner while making my ring finger very obvious!

I do not see an reason to get mad about it, it is her ring. If she forget to put it on she would be more bothered about it than me.

Hope you don't mind, I substituted "wife" for "husband", but as long as it was accidental, I wouldn't care. If he were purposely leaving it off to attract attention or did it all the time, I'd prolly start to get pissed.

This, exactly.

If it was accidental, and was a one-time thing, then I'd be OK about it. If it "conveniently" happens on the nights that you're apart, than that's being deceitful. I'd have some pretty strong words.

I'd want to know her reasoning behind it before I'd entertain the possibility of getting angry.

LOL I take my ring off at night because my arm/hand swells if I sleep on it for too long, plus I broke my elbow back in November, and its not fully healed. I still have days that it swells. But I forget to put it on in the daytime sometimes. Some days I am great at remembering, but other days I just am too frazzled or too tired to remember. Thinking of getting a tattoo on my ring finger in case i forget. : )

Now if he did it.. I guess I am a hypocrite, I wouldn't like it too much. If it happened often - seeing as how he never takes his ring off, it would be odd for him to leave it.

It would depend on why it was off, and if it was habitual.

If my partner takes her ring off because she works with clay, and clay is impossible to remove from settings, and forgets to put it back on--that's fine. I don't even mind if she wears it on a chain around her neck, it's no big deal.

But if she's 'forgetting' to wear it a lot, that's a problem and that is a red flag.

I don't think it would bother me, but my wife and I never take off our wedding rings. We wear them all of the time.

I trust my wife. The rings I bought for her are exactly that, for her. I didn't buy them to keep other guys away.

markeagleone - Exactly! My wife loves her ring - that's why she wears it. It has nothing to do with pleasing me or warding off other men.

A ring is a symbol of love, not the actual act, so not wearing it isn't a huge deal to me

My girl gets hit on alot, even if her engagment ring is on. I can be with her somewhere and guys still will. Its nice to know she is wanted, makes me feel good that she's coming home with me. It is a turn on. If she were to 'go out' without me or with me, she should be wearing her ring. If she ran to the gas station and forgot it, that is not a big deal.

For my wife, probably wouldn't be a big deal. I trust her, and if she leaves it off there's probably a good reason. I also think there are many men who wouldn't care either way if they thought they had a chance, so it's not a big deal.

I wear mine all the time unless I have a reason not to, though, just because.

I voted for hubby. I hardly ever wear my ring because it doesn't fit well anymore. More often than not, though, I do have my engagement ring on. He doesn't seem to mind.

I cant wear my ring or any jewelry at work. My wife takes off all of her rings ect. @ night and occasionally forgets them. The rings are not too important to us. We are both secure and trust each other. In our ceremony the minister actually forgot the whole ring exchange and we both did in the moment as well and as we were walking back together we were like hey lol

I would not be mad, but at the same time I have never taken off my ring.

I have to vote other. If he was leaving it off and leaving the house every night at 10pm or other unusual things I'd question him for sure. If it was one event, no biggie. It depends on the circumstances.

This is coming from a guy that has lost a couple of wedding rings, one while working a normal job and the other while I was in Iraq, I wouldn't care. To me a ring is just a piece of jewelry, your bond with each other is what's important. But if you start noticing other things, than you might want to get concerned then.

I assumed "went out" means to a club or socializing. In that situation I would be mad.

My girlfriend gave me an engagement ring for Christmas, and I still keep forgetting to wear it. I take it off before I go to sleep because my mom's finger has kind of "grown around" the ring, and my grandma had to be cremated with hers. I feel badly when I forget. I hope it doesn't make her mad!

It also depends on the job she has. I mean, I'm an EMT, so jewelery is kind of out of the question.

Same here. It would definitely not be a turn on though.

I wouldn't be mad as long as it was a genuine accident. If it became habit, I'd start to get irritated.

I never wear my ring at home. I always wear it out in public. But when dealing with the kids and the dishes and the laundry and and and.... I just find it more comfortable not to wear it.

I would be mad if it was intentional. If it were an accident, that's fine. For example, my mother always removes her wedding ring when she does the dishes. She usually lounges around the house after that so she often forgets to put it back on, and occasionally she forgets to put it back on before going out.

There is definitely a difference between intentionally taking it off, and forgetting to put it on. My mom can't wear hers anymore since it broke(it's a shame). Now that I think about it, that's probably why our neighbor flirts with her a lot.

But just because someone isn't wearing their ring, doesn't mean they're not going to be faithful.

I would love to wear my ring all of the time but have take it off for work. My work requires me to be constantly washing my hands. It gets moist and gross, macerating the skin beneath it. Infection risk... and I don't want to have to take it off at work and risk losing it.
