It seems like more women than men wear wedding rings.

24/7 (cept when I'm at the club lookin to score!)

Had a guy who worked for me at previous job tell me he told his wife 'I don't need a ring. I've got a ring around my heart.' Turned out some years later he cheated on her and married someone else. He has a ring on in the new photos.

I never wear mine or any other jewelry for that matter.

The wife wears hers occasionally if we are going out.

I'm quite fond of wearing my wedding band.  It pretty much only comes off if I'm doing something that might damage it.   If I inadvertently leave the house with it off, I spend the whole day repeatedly feeling for it on my finger.

Not married, and hate wearing rings.  Having said that I would probably wear it most of the time out of respect.  Even though it will interfere with my gaming

I wear one and it never comes off my finger, with the exception of when I ride a mountain bike, because I used to weigh more when I got married and now the ring is big on me and all the shaking makes it slide out from under my biking gloves which are half finger gloves.

My left hand weighs .2% more than my right hand, which makes my controller tilt a bit when I hold it and wreaks havoc on any motion control games.  I had to have my steering alignment modified on my car to stop myself from driving in large counter-clockwise circles.

My 30th anniversary is next week and I've worn it the whole time. My finger fattened up around it -- I was a skinny lad 30 years ago. I'd probably have to cut it off if I wanted to remove it. I mean the ring, not the finger, although I suppose either would work.

For people that wear it all time have you gotten a callous under your ring finger? If so how do you deal with it? I have one now and would like it to go away or be able to deal with it.

The only times I take it off is like tonight, where I made burgers and didn't want to get the thing full of meat bits, or sometimes when I play games, as the vibrations of the controller can irritate.  Or if I'm having it cleaned.

Maybe you're wearing the wrong size. Even at my heaviest I never developed a callus.

I wear my wedding ring at most times but with a handful of exceptions.  I do not wear it to the gym, playing softball, boating, swimming, or during any physical activities during which it could be damaged or lost.  I also take it off at the end of the day before bed, always setting it on a ring stand on my bureau next to my watch and phone.

Mine is as well.  I definitely notice if I forget to wear it as my hand feels distinctly lighter without a slab of platinum on it, but I believe tungsten is even heavier.

I'm in the "wear it when I go out and take it off at home" camp. Why? Don't really know, just kind of a forever habit. And have similar exceptions as well when it comes off - at the gym, working on something, the whole damaged / lost / chock full 'o crap thing. Mine isn't heavy but it is a nice yellow gold band with channel set diamonds that go half way 'round... really don't want to effe it up.

Only at home.  If I leave home without it on, I would feel weird.  I've never made it out of the garage without it on.  It's like a part of getting dressed.  Ring, wallet, phone.

I am not in the least surprised by this part.  Pete has a stand just for his ring

personally, I never take mine off unless I'm making something in the kitchen and don't want particles to get gunked in.  in fact, I can't take it off most times, and rarely without some kind of soap.  I've got one of those bands with 3 shades of gold interwoven into the center. 

when I do take it off, it feels odd and the skin underneath is always kind of oddly smooth.
