Why Is It That Some Married Couples Hardly Wear Their Rings Nowadays? by jaelz(m): 12:55pm On Mar 26
So I was hosting an uncle of mine and we were discussing about why he wasn't wearing his ring, to my utmost surprise he said he wears his ring any day his wife wears hers. I was shocked though but my mind drifted back to me so many of my friends and relations who also do not wear their rings again even despite being married.

Back in the days I know you only take off your ring when you want to flirt abi play away matches, but these days it's almost as if they take off their wedding rings immediately after those church weddings.

So my question is why?

And you think ring stops them? Ladies are actually okay with dating men that live with their wives, they only have issues with those that live with their mothers.






@OP most married people wear their rings.

Hmnn... I think the question should be When did the wearing of a ring symbolize a sign of love? Who sold this to us as being the right thing to do?
Adam and Eve had no ring, I can't remember if it's anywhere in the Bible, Quran, or even traditional religion? Let's wake up guys, we need to start questioning somethings.

We get stuck to ourselves and the heart knows where it belongs, every other thing becomes secondary. Another point is weight gain, if the finger becomes fatter, the ring becomes tight on it.

Please y'all married men should be wearing your rings religiously. Infact, glue it to your finger. That's how I was codedly eyeing one cute brother in my unit who makes a habit of calling me for follow-up, only for him to show up with a ring the next Sunday.

I didn't even bother analysing whether the ring looks like a wedding band, or it's on the wedding finger, I simply stopped eyeing him.

Two more Sundays have passed and he's not been wearing the ring, but what's my business... I'm not looking his way anymore. sad

Okay this thread is on front page now and people have started quoting me. LOL. Please, that post was made weeks ago. The brother-in-the-Lord isn't married... our unit pastor was teasing him last Sunday to go get married.
That post was just bant... no romantic interest, biko.

It's not about symbolising love. You don't need to wear a symbol of love... let the love be between you and your spouse. It's about letting other people know you're unavailable.

It's only age-advanced people I automatically consider married whether or not they have a wedding band on.

Young couples should wear their rings religiously.

I think a large proportion is because of added weight which makes it a pain to the finger.

The ring is a symbol to the partner and not anyone else. To the world, it makes no difference just like a class ring.

Just a ring. Nothing more. Wedding ring won't stop adultery. Some guys get off on married women while some babes are on the lookout for sugar daddies.

If it's fake gold or substandard gold. Most of the so called gold in our market are substandard and people don't check labels before buying. They dont even know what to look out for.

Real gold or diamond are very costly.

Some, It depends on their career paths.. A lot of couple may have lost their wedding rings due to the nature of their jobs.... There are some production factories that does not permit any kind of bands to avoid mistakes example some food factories.. finding a ring in a cocacola bottle, bottle of beer, sardine cans etc by mistake kills a company's reputation ... the constant putting it on and removing during shift could be annoying... so I guess that's one angle to look at it...besides, marriage is a thing of the heart...there are also the super religious ones that doesn't use wedding band as symbol of union. they use the bible.

Wearing ring is the ideas white sold to us, and wearing ring doesn't mean the man or woman won't cheat. Some people like dating people that are in marriage because they know where they both stand in their illicit affairs. The following are reason or reasons why couple may not be wearing their wedding ring

Weight gain is major factor
Skin allergy to mental etc

Lastly is faith what i mean by faith is their denominations some churches don't do wedding ring
