Any ring feels weird on my funny shaped fingers. Never married, only jewellry I wear is a Crucifix & ear rings. My sister (twice divorced) still wears a wedding ring if she want's a quiet night out without guys or girls hitting on her

I did, but it annoyed me so much I stopped. It hurt. If it was cold out, it'd slide off and hit the floor. In the summer it was a too tight. No watch or anything else either, just gets in the way.

Wore one for about the first 2 yrs we were married, one day at work i was loading a truck that hadstake sides on it. As i jumped down from the side of the truck my ring caught on the stake rack of the truck. I was left hanging with my toes barely touching the ground. Ring was streched out like a large tear drop, finger was cut but not to bad, have not worn it since, will be 50yrs this fall.

It is verboten at my place of employment. I did make ours out of Titanium there, however.

I don't wear rings because they make great resistance heaters and easily de-glove fingers when snagged. My wife had that happen on a CH-3 access panel so she understood. I also mentioned that (as she also knew) the guys with rings got all the play on TDYs while obviously single dudes were usually ignored.
