My husband had never really liked jewelry. He was married for 17 years before me. He did not wear his ring, because of work. However; two years after his divorce, we met. Two years later, we were married. He was actually excited about wearing a wedding band, with me! Which made me so happy!! There’s only been one job site that actually had a rule that the workers NOT wear any rings, watches, bracelets or necklaces. ( he’s an iron worker/ welder. We travel all over.) This was in upstate NY. He told me about it and said he took it off right b4 entering the gate and it went back on as soon as he left the gate! He could’ve gone on and never said a word! But when we put our rings on, we vowed to never take them off. That was a tradition my parents, rest their souls, started. And I’m so glad we honored that! It’s a symbol that we love and are loved and committed, for life with another. And that’s what my parents did to the day they died ... together! That’s how the rings should be done. Period. And if he cannot wear one, there should be something equal to that!!!!
