So my question is what do your husbands/H2Bs do for wedding rings? Do they have them and wear them? Have them and don't wear them? Or simply not have one? Might seem an odd question but my H2B doesn't want a wedding ring because it's unsafe in his job to wear one. Which I totally understand - but I would still like him to have one but just take it off whilst he's at work. I get quite upset at the thought of him not having one, I feel like it's really important to me to wear a ring and I don't understand why it's not important to him. Also, what happens during the ceremony where you're meant to exchange rings if only I were to have one? Does it mean I don't get to say the same words (with this ring..with my body..etc) to him as he would get to say to me?

My husband wears his, but when we were discussing it he was determined not to wear one and like you I got a bit upset. We agreed to have the rings for Ceremony and he said he would take it off after the wedding, but he never has and really loves it. His job is equally dangerous to wear it but he either takes it of for a short time or tapes it up, it titanium so it's hard wearing and not expensive. It took the actual wedding day for my husband to realise the significance of his ring so maybe get the rings just for the ceremony and day and go from there.
