Wedding rings

I have a dumb guy question. Is the engagement ring used also as the wedding ring? Or, are they 2 seperate rings?

Usually it's two separate rings. We opted out for custom made, heirloom quality, gold bands. We both wanted rings that are rugged, but beautiful and suit our lifestyle. Here's a picture, maybe. If not, check the photo gallery. I don't know how well it will turn out, but it's 2 horses running across a pasture with mountains in the background.

My wife and I do not wear rings. I gave here my Moms ring and it is put up for safe keeping. I do not even own a ring with my line of work to dangerouse. We both know we are married to each other together or apart. Mark H.

good propoganda put out by the diamond industry to utilize the enhanced emotions of young couples. Kind of like the loan industry and its 28% of gross income for a house payment. Lemmings are lead over a cliff so easy

You don't get off that easy, you'll have to buy 2 rings.

A supplemental question: am I the only female in the Universe who doesn't like engagement rings? All I wear is a gold band.

donna in w.v    Posted 03-09-2004 at 16:08:12       [Reply]  [Send Email]
me too! all i wanted was a wedding ring. diamonds are not my style. actually i wear very little jewelry. wedding ring,cross, and small gold post earring cuz my ears are pierced.

Donna and Melanie, You are both my kinda girls. Marci and I both have just plain gold wedding bands. She doesn't like much jewelry either and I'm glad. She would just as soon have a new rifle scope or a fishing pole and I can pick those kind of things out much easier then jewelry.
I couldn't wear my ring with my old job so I kept it on my key ring, but now it's on my finger till the finger comes off.

What a cool anniversary gift!!
Who is that guy standing next to it?
I just searched for a picture of that 57 candy apple chevy pickup. Only one I could find had that guy leaning on it. your hubby?? :-)

Well, I guess if I was offered my birthstone, an emerald (but JUST an emerald; diamonds to me are oogly) as an engagement ring, I might wear it, but I don't think the two-ring system is much more than a waste of moola. I'd be too paranoid to wear the dang thing. Might lose it, or something. :) :) :)

rhouston    Posted 03-09-2004 at 12:43:32       [Reply]  [No Email]
if it's the diamonds you don't like my wife is right there with you. She told me not to buy her diamonds as they are a "cheap common stone made to seem rare by DeBeers" she has lots of rings but no engagement ring.

one other question for the guys. How many wear their wedding band ?

Dieselrider    Posted 03-09-2004 at 18:21:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
I wear mine all the time now. I wasn't allowed to when i worked in a factory and it was a real pain to take off each day. So it stayed on my keychain but, the day after I left that job the ring went on and it's staying on.

Willy-N    Posted 03-09-2004 at 16:45:02       [Reply]  [No Email]
I have never wore a ring in probley 35 years! Never have owned a wedding ring either even with a ex wife. First one got one but it did not make a differeance to her. Present wife dose not want one nor will wear one. We do not need a ring to be true to each other. If there is a problem developing outside the home I just say I am happily married. Mark H.

I wore mine on the day of our wedding. I took it off the next day and haven't worn it for 16 years. My wife only wears hers to work and out to fancy dinners.

I usually wear mine...recently had it resized...*super sized," so now I can take it off if I'm around power tools that make me nervous. the question re: engagement rings...they can be gold-soldered to the wedding band to make them look like one ring. Depends upon the design.

Michael M    Posted 03-09-2004 at 16:05:39       [Reply]  [No Email]
I wear mine, though I sometimes take it off for safety sake. For a number of reasons though, I am usually wearing work gloves. When I am going to town, I always have it on, and so does my wife.
She didn't want an engagement ring either, but now wears a number of my family's heirloom jewels.

I wear mine, there have been times I regretted it,it conducts 12V DC really well,leaves nice burn all around your finger.
I work around and with lots of women, most married, some single, some married but acting single. It is good practice to wear it. Not wearing it sends out wrong signal even at my age. Besides, the married ones (the good ones) let me know real quick I forgot something.:^)

I wear mine. even if I take it off it's still there

Gene SC    Posted 03-09-2004 at 14:33:25       [Reply]  [No Email]
Well said Rhouston! I wear mine always.

Ron,Ar    Posted 03-09-2004 at 13:43:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
I forgot to mention that I have worn several out over the last 30 years. My wife always makes sure I have one:^)
I don't need a ring to know I am married either.

Snuff    Posted 03-09-2004 at 12:40:18       [Reply]  [Send Email]
Well what happens to the engagement ring after the wedding? I don't see 2 rings on a married womens finger. I only see the wedding ring.
