My Wife Understands Your's Will to Just Show Her This

Figured this goes along with tools a safety so here goes:


Well I severed 20 years in the Air Force and always had to take my wedding ring off at work. Did sheet metal work so it was dangerous to wear it. I lost 2 of them over the years. I've been wearing my ring constantly for the past 10 years trying not to loose another one. I love my wife and wear it out of respect for our marriage. I have had welding slag get under it more than once (That Hurts) but it healed. I was on a ladder today and had a hand full of wenches and stuff. On the way down I caught my ring on one of the rungs.......... Show this to you wife if she gets mad at you if you don't wear yours.

My wife said not to wear it at work anymore.

About 6 months after I got married i saw a cowboy get his finger smashed between a gate and a fence by a feisty horse. The smashed/broken fingers were bad enuff,but the damage caused by the pinched wedding ring has stuck with me for years. I still dont wear mine.

To me, whereas I understand the sentimental reasons behind the rings, if one takes it off for a good reason, then the other should understand. The love should be strong enough that a ring does not matter. This sounds like a security issue with oneself.

Haven't had mine on in over 9 years for that reason. The old lady understands and doesn't want anything bad like that to happen.

Can't wear mine at work either, it's a safety rule. Leave it in the truck when I get there then put it on when I get off.

Mine got me hit by 220volts when I was young and new to my trade. Never wore one again.

When I was in 4th grade, I was helping my dad build a house and watched him hook his ring on a nail climbing down off a framed wall. He was hanging by his finger until I could get a ladder over there. I will forever know what a finger looks like when you turn it inside out. He doesn't wear his any more!

Wore mine for the first year and it got crushed when a box fell on my hand. It has been 10 years since I had mine on. Partly I can't stand to wear jewelry/watches/necklaces/etc and partly to not rip my finger off. My wife understands!

Well, I have been married over 40 years. But, I haven't wore a ring in over 35 years. Didn't completely smash it. But bent it to the point, had to cut it off with side cutters. Haven't worn any ring since then.

For me it's a personal conviction,I have worn mine everyday since my wife put it on me.I have had it glowing red more than a few times and let my finger heal with it still on. if I have a fear of it getting caught on something I'll wear gloves. I can understand why you all have your reasons for not wearing yours though.
My buddy Josh had a ring tattooed on so he would still have one on no matter what.

Your commitment to your wife is what matters ring or no ring.

Re: My Wife Understands Your's Will to Just Show Her This

I have work my ring maybe 20 times since we got married 4.5 years ago.. I just don't like wearing a ring period, but I will wear it on certain occasions. No way id wear it at work or in the garage, I don't want that kind of risk.

I basicly only wear mine if im "dressed nice" any other time im prone to start working on something so probably about 10% of the day most of the time, but since I have been going to school she shows a little more interest on school days.

Wow, ya'll are making me feel lucky, been married almost 8 years, don't take mine off...only everyonce in awhile doing certain jobs where it kinda digs into my hand. I got a titanium one when I got married, so its pretty tough. Down side is you can't get it resized and my finger is slowly wrapping around it like a tree around a barbed wire fence

I smashed mine once and almost broke the two fingers on either side, that's when I stopped wearing mine. I did get mine tattoed on just to stop the complaints of not wearing one! lol

If you need a ladder to work on your rig you might want to re-think your suspension.

Mine is tungsten carbide. Ain't no dike.......or ......wire cutters gonna get mine off. Lol

I was pullin a tcase in the driveway one time and when it slipped off the output shaft It got off balance. I bounced it off my gut and down to the concrete as smooth as I could. The tcase landed on my ring. Saved my finger, I'm pretty sure.
