    Neither DH or I wear our rings. Me because I gained weight with my babies and they dont fit right now (I would get them resized, but I am struggling to lose my baby weight right now and it is one more motivator). DH doesnt wear his due to work. He sometimes wears it when we are on holidays, but generally they all stay in my jewelry box. Its not like people dont know we are married, we have a good relationship, and we both know we arent just avoiding tan lines

    had to laugh at that line.

    The friend the radio DJ was talking about was going to bars/parties without her ring and it is a long distance relationship. I am guessing that there was a question of whether she was leaving it off on purpose.

    I asked the question because I was interested to see what others do. I did not want an engagement ring but our rings are Sean's mom's and dad's, his dad died when he was 3. It is a nice set but not something I would have chose. My anniversary ring that I wear now I did choose and I love it.

    I always took mine off to wash up, and thats how I have somehow lost them. I haven't worn my rings for probably close to 18 months now, and I wish I knew where they were

    I used to wear mine every day, but since I lost weight it's gotten too big for my ring finger. I seriously need to get it resized, since I can slide it off way too easily.

    DH wears his every day. And right now, he can't even take it off since he jammed that finger playing basketball last week!

    Maybe have them melted down & made into something else. That way you'd still have the memories & emotions, but a piece of jewelry that you'd want to wear. My mom had her old wedding rings melted down into a nugget & the diamonds set into it. It's gorgeous and she wears it all the time.

    I didn't want an engagement ring. I don't like the paternalistic traditions behind the ritual and I didn't feel the need to indicate to anyone that I was "off the market." My wedding ring is actually three small rings, one each of yellow, pink, and white gold, linked together. I have only rarely taken it off. When I swelled up at the end of my pregnancy with Tiven, I moved it to a different finger, but I never had to move it when pregnant with Weston. A few months after Tiven was born, I told DH that after 20 years together, 10 years of marriage, and our first child, I was ready for some bling. I emailed him a link to the three-stone anniversary ring I wanted. He gave it to me for the Winter Solstice that year. I wear it behind my wedding ring because it's a wee bit loose. DH doesn't always wear his but it's just because he took it off for backpacking or working on the bikes and forgot to put it back on, not that he's out looking for someone else.

    I was the total opposite. Loved everything about that ring and what it symbolized- the excitement, our commitment, his joy and thoughtfulness and consideration in picking it out and sweet proposal...... Ahhhhh, I loved it all still makes me happy thinking about those days and all that went into that ring and I truly treasure it and the memories it symbolizes.

    I agree Melissa. I love my engagement ring because I love the memories of that happy time in our lives, and I love that he went to the trouble to find just the right ring. It's a gorgeous ring, exactly to my tastes. He did a good job figuring out exactly what I like and making it happen.

    I'm just not much of a jewelry person, to be honest. Plus I did the proposing! He brought up the subject the first time, but I did the actual proposal one happy afternoon hanging out looking out over Long Island Sound. We ended up getting married in that same spot.

    That's really sweet that you got married at the same place you got engaged!
