Is Prince Harry planning to break royal tradition by wearing a wedding ring?

Prince Harry watches the Women's Six Nations Championship game between England and Wales

Prince Harry spent the weekend watching the women’s Six Nations Championship game between England and Wales. Harry is the patron of the Rugby Football Union now, and has been for over a year – he took over the patronage from the Queen after she scaled down her patronage list at the end of 2016. I’m sorry to say that Meghan Markle didn’t attend the game with Harry. Even though rugby is played here in America, it’s never really taken hold as a much-watch sport, so I would imagine that Meghan has probably never even seen a complete rugby match, nor does she care about rugby all that much. Just wait until she says “soccer” instead of “football,” you guys. The British press well be in full meltdown mode.

Anyway, these photos are nice but at this point, I’m only interested in Harry if he’s escorting Meghan Markle somewhere. There is this somewhat interesting story about Harry though: will he follow in his father and his brother’s footsteps and refuse to wear a wedding band?

Prince Harry may follow in his brother Prince William’s footsteps and choose not to wear a wedding ring after marrying. Harry is set to exchange vows with his fiancée Meghan Markle on Saturday 19 May, so he has until then to decide, but the groom-to-be may opt out of wearing a band. A number of married male royals in his family have chosen not to, including his older brother William and his grandfather Prince Philip. The reason is very simple; it’s a case of personal preference.

William does not like wearing jewellery of any kind, and so decided to remain ringless following his nuptials to Kate in 2011. His decision was actually first announced shortly before his Westminster Abbey wedding ceremony, with a statement from St James’ Palace confirming the news. An aide said: “It was something the couple discussed but Prince William isn’t one for jewellery – he doesn’t even wear a signet ring – and decided he didn’t want to. It really is just down to personal preference. Catherine will wear a ring fashioned from a lump of Welsh gold owned by the Royal Family that has been smelted down.”

Despite being married to the Queen for nearly 70 years, Prince Philip has also never worn a wedding ring. William’s father Prince Charles, meanwhile, does wear one, next to a signet ring on the little finger of his left hand. Harry, however, may choose to wear a wedding ring as a symbol of his love for Meghan. Since meeting his soulmate, the romantic Prince has continued to wear a beaded blue, white and black “love bracelet” that he is believed to have bought with Meghan or received from her; his fiancée also has a matching bracelet.

[From Hello]

I still think it’s shady that William doesn’t wear a wedding band. I get that there’s some sort of tradition with royal men and Charles and Philip don’t wear one either, but still: it’s shady. I will find it shady if Harry goes without a wedding band too. It would be different if William and Harry were doing work with their hands – I would completely understand that, and obviously there are many careers where a wedding ring would be distracting or detrimental (doctors, surgeons, athletes, engineers, etc). But Harry and William are no longer pilots, they are public servants who shake hands and go to dinners and talk to people. There’s no reason to NOT wear a ring other than “being shady.”

    I AM FIRST YEEEE LOL hello handsome ;)

  2. Goats on the Roof says:

    Charles wears a wedding band on his pinky.

  3. Carol Hill says:

    Sorry, Kaiser, but you are wrong here. My father and my husband don’t wear wedding bands. They do not cheat. They are committed to their marriages. They just don’t wear jewelry. No story there.

    • GreenBunny says:

      My husband doesn’t wear a ring and it doesn’t bother me at all. He doesn’t cheat and honestly a wedding ring isn’t going to stop anyone anyway. I work from home and have 3 young kids, so I barely wear my wedding and engagement rings either and it doesn’t bother my husband. If I go somewhere nice I wear them, because they are pretty and I do love them. We’ve been married for 12 years, and there’s so much more that symbolizes our marriage than rings anyway.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Same. I never wear them at home.I like to cook. Last year, I cracked a prong and almost lost the center stone. Any cleaning solution, in the tiniest and most diluted amount, caught under the rings gives me a chemical burn that blisters and makes my finger swell for 2-3 weeks with peeling. Spouse takes his off at work due to performing sterile procedures, and gross hospital germs. Married 23 years. Rings are an afterthought at this point!!!

      • LadyT says:

        The last time I saw my husband’s wedding band was at our wedding reception 35 years ago. Totally faithful in every way. Just isn’t going to wear “jewelry.”

    • Jennyjenjenjenjenn says:

      Agreed. One of my dearest friends doesn’t wear a ring. He genuinely doesn’t like wearing it. He is far from shady. He is so dedicated and sweet to his wife (but low key about it- he often has me buy gifts for her via Amazon etc so she doesn’t notice the order). they are ” hashtagrelationshipgoals” but in no way perfect.

      That being said, I don’t know the Royals personally so I can’t say they are or aren’t “ring people.” But clearly the history of Charles tarnishes the tradition of “no ring.” And the looooong wait for William to commit also adds to the layer of Will’s lack of an obvious ring.

      I think Harry seems like a “ring guy.” But we shall see.

    • Sherry says:

      When my husband and I were first married, he wore a wedding ring, but as time passed and he gained weight, he took it off because he was afraid it would get stuck. I didn’t care. If the only thing keeping him faithful to me is a gold piece of jewelry on his finger, then our marriage has bigger problems.

    • Madame de Stael says:

      I’m eyerolling the idea that it’s shady. As though some woman will think Prince William or Prince Harry isn’t married because they’re not wearing a wedding ring?

      Happily married 34 years even though my husband doesn’t wear a ring and I never changed my last name (maybe I’m shady, too?)

      • Boudica says:

        Happily married 36 years here, never changed my last name and have never worn a wedding ring. My husband was never going to so I decided I wouldn’t either and that didn’t bother him at all. It’s not an issue for us. I know I’m married and do does he. That’s all that matters to us.

    • AtlLady says:

      If William doesn’t wear a ring because he doesn’t care for jewelry, more power to him. Everyone on the freaking planet knows he is married. Is there some sort of ring he will have to wear at his (if it happens) coronation? The sovereign gets loaded down with the orb, the scepter, the crown, gets anointed, does something involving the coronation stone; surely, there is a ring in there somewhere. The coronation of Elizabeth II took place before the vast majority of us were born, so do any of us know? Well, any of us other than the stuffy old guy in the corner of the palace who lives and breathes this stuff.

    • Carmen says:

      My parents were happily married for 35 years until my dad passed away. He absolutely refused to wear a wedding ring. He wouldn’t wear any kind of jewelry. He just didn’t like it.

    • SK says:

      Yeah my dad doesn’t either. They tried: he had 3 rings over the years, but he kept taking them off to do things and losing them. He is always gardening, painting, cycling, hiking, out at quarries being a geologist, etc. Jewelry just doesn’t work for him! He is also completely besotted with my mother and I’ve honestly never seen the slightest bit of shadiness from him. You talk about a supermodel and he gives you a speech about how my mother is superior (to which she rolls her eyes). It’s cute.

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      My husband and I almost never wore one either, except on wedding day.
      We keep them at home and we often forget to wear them outside too.

      I don’t understand the American obsession for ring watch/wear… a ring doesn’t mean you cannot cheat. It’s a ring, not a chastity belt with a key FGS…

    • MoonTheLoon says:

      Brava, well said! I’ve watched enough movies where people get it on with someone else while wearing their rings to disabuse me that a ring stops anyone. I personally don’t wear my rings, save for when we go visit the in-laws. I’m also one of those that despises jewelry (a bit of a germ-phobe) , as well I’m uber-private. Wearing jewelry gives too much info away, in my mind. Hubby, on the other hand, loves his ring. He’s not a jewelry person either, but says it makes him happy. It’s clearly a matter of personal taste.

    • Cidey says:

      Agreed – My husband doesn’t wear one and I couldn’t give a hoot. Neither did my Father. Someone once asked my Mother if it bothered her and she laughed, “If you think your husband has to wear a ring to stay faithful you’ve got bigger issues than a piece of jewelry!” We are both very happily married couples!

    • Nikki says:

      Ummm..I think the entire world knows that William is married. I honestly don’t think he needs to leave off a ring if he wanted to cheat!!! Some people just hate the feeling of jewelry.

    • TyrantDestroyed says:

      I don’t like to wear jewelry and that includes my wedding band and I am not shady. People reads to much into little things like this…

    • oh-dear says:

      I very rarely wear mine. And I don’t cheat. And I’m also not shady.

  4. Hh says:

    I don’t find it shady of William since he doesn’t wear any jewelry. However, Harry has worn both necklaces and bracelets. So, it would seem more shady to me. But hey, as long as their wives don’t have a problem and the men remain faithful, not really that big of a deal.

    ETA: As much as the rings are a symbol to the couple, they are also a symbol to everyone else. If one conducts themselves like they are married, then that’s what counts.

  5. Megan says:

    I don’t have strong feelings about people wearing wedding bands. My husband’s gold wedding band gave him eczema so he had to switch to stainless steel. If that, too, had been an issue, I would much rather he go ringless than have a scaly hand.

  6. minx says:

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with not wearing a ring. Some people don’t like to wear them. And rings come off, they aren’t going to stop someone from cheating.

  7. Eva says:

    What’s shady about William or Harry not wearing a ring? I mean the entire world has seen/will see their wedding pictures, so it’s not like they can go on Tinder and pretend to be single.

  8. Valiantly Varnished says:

    It states in the story that Charles DOES wear a ring. Eh – there’s nothing all that shady about this. Patriarchal? Yes. But it’s not like William is some random guy who can walk into a bar and hit on chicks and get away with it because he’s not wearing his wedding ring. He’s pretty recognizable as the heir to the throne. I have two thoughts on this: 1. Wearing wedding rings is a recent historical phenomenon that has only really been a thing in the last century or so. And lots of cultures don’t exchange rings at all. 2. If Meghan and Kate are “required” to wear rings then tbeir husbands should be as well. Simple as that.

    • Merritt says:

      Are Meghan and Kate required to wear rings or do they just want to do so? Some royal women don’t wear rings. Crown Princess Victoria frequently doesn’t wear hers. Queen Letizia had to stop wearing her original ring because it was part of her sister in law’s scandal.

      • Betsy says:

        I don’t care enough to google, but that sounds shadoy interesting.

      • LAK says:

        Wedding rings are an ancient custom going as far back as Egyptian civilisations. Depending on the culture and circumstance, it appears that women were / are frequently expected to wear a ring to symbolise their marriage. Not so Men, and it depends on the culture and circumstance. In modern times, we tend to expect both to wear a ring.

        There is no law to enforce this expectation. More societal pressure. I think because of the patriarchy still running through our society and the ideas it has created, if MM or Kate decided to skip having a wedding ring like William did, there would be a big ol scandal.

        And there would be a neverending running commentary about what the lack of a ring said about the state of their relationship – see frequent articles when celeb women remove their rings.

  9. Charmed says:

    I think it would be nice for him to wear a wedding ring too, but I don’t understand why it would be ‘shady’ for him not to wear one? Like, he’s not some regular douchebag trying to hit on strangers in bars, most people would recognize him and will know he’s married. The matching bracelet thing is pretty cute already tbh.

  10. Loopy says:

    I don’t think it’s shady because hello who won’t know that they are married. It’s not like they are civilians going to a dodgy bar ringless pretending to be single.

    • perplexed says:

      I agree. Who doesn’t know William isn’t married to someone named Kate and that he has a son named George who is going to be a future King of England?

      Even if he tried to go incognito to a bar, I’m sure the newspapers in England probably have some reporter on his tail who would tell us about his shenanigans.

      If a royal wants to cheat with one of their aristocrat friends, they’re going to do it anyway, ring or no ring. In this case, a ring really has no impact.

  11. Maddy says:

    My husband doesn’t wear his ring and I hardly do either, it doesn’t matter much either way to me, I know we’re married.

  12. Citresse says:

    There were Kings who wore their wedding bands on a small gold chain worn around their necks. Maybe Harry can bring it back hundreds of years later?

  13. MMMMA says:

    If literally the entire world knows they’re married, I don’t see it being shady at all.

  14. Myhairisfullofsecrets says:

    Mr. Secrets lost his hella expensive wedding ring so he doesn’t wear one right now. Just waiting to get a new one. He works with a lot of women in a hospital but I trust him implicitly so I have no worries at all. I also find it absolutely hilarious when I visit him at work and see all the sad/mad/confused faces of the female employees when they realize he’s married. We both get such a kick out of it. 😂

  15. Georgia says:

    I disagree. I don’t find it shady not to wear a ring. I think in this case it really does come down to personal preferences.

  16. Amy Tennant says:

    It’s not necessarily shady for the royal men not to wear them, I think. I mean, any more shady than anything else (side-eye Philip, side-eye Charles). It’s not as if people aren’t going to know they’re married after a wedding that’s been televised all over the world. And anyone who isn’t going to be deterred by that isn’t going to be deterred by the ring.

    That said, it’s lovely if Harry wants to wear one. I think it’s up to everyone’s personal choice these days, but it’s a sweet choice.

  17. LAK says:

    All the royal men wear wedding rings except for William who went as far as not having one made in the first place.

    The rings aren’t obvious to most people because they are worn behind their signet rings unlike regular men who wear them on their fourth finger. Philip stopped wearing ALL his rings after his rings swelled past the point where he could wear his rings comfortably. Charles’s fingers are heading the same way.

    Prince Philip:

    Prince Charles

    Prince Andrew:

    Prince Edward:

  18. KatieBo says:

    It’s not as if anyone isn’t going to KNOW that they’re married.

  19. Guest says:

    The British royal family are so ridiculous with some of their “traditions” especially when you look at other royal families like Sweden,Spain, Denmark, etc.

  20. Lorelai says:

    I hope Harry does wear one, it’s always bothered me that William doesn’t. I don’t necessarily think it means they’re “shady,” but for some reason it’s just a pet peeve of mine. Jon Stewart doesn’t wear one either and it always annoyed me.

    Of course it won’t prevent cheating, but there’s a reason that most married people do wear them. I would be upset if my husband refused to.

    • nicole says:

      I agree, I dont think there is anything shady about it, but I still like my husband wearing his ring, I think its nice that married men wear there rings, thats just my feelings about it.

    • magnoliarose says:

      My husband is the same about our rings. I have an engagement ring that is special, but I only wear it for special occasions. I am not a bling type, so we wear bands that have special meaning. We got new ones recently remade from our old ones for our new beginning, and I wouldn’t dare take it off because it makes me happy when I look at it.
      I like them more now than I did before. There is something old-fashioned and sweet about it.

      • Jaded says:

        I like the significance that you and your Mr. attach to your rings. Mr. Jaded and I aren’t married but for my birthday last year he gave me a beautiful emerald and diamond band that I wear on my ring finger. When we got back together in 2015 (we have a history, we had a relationship back in the late 1970′s but let’s just say it ended badly – fast-forward 35 years and we found each other again) love ensued. I never married and he couldn’t believe that I’d never been given a ring. I was so overwhelmed when he gave it to me I cried. Neither of us sees the need to get married, but I feel like he’s made the equivalent pledge.

      • magnoliarose says:

        Awww Jaded.
        I love stories like yours. It is very romantic and hopeful.
        For me too it is the symbol and it feels right.
        35 years! Wow.
        Sometimes the timing is wrong and in your case 35 years wrong.

        I wish you both well and many great years of togetherness.

  21. KBeth says:

    There is nothing “shady” about not wearing a wedding ring…..especially William,, nobody thinks he’s single, lol.
    Some people just don’t like jewelry, myself included. Rings feel so uncomfortable for some reason.

  22. Aang says:

    I don’t wear any jewelry, like wise for Mr. Aang. I haven’t cheated yet, but I guess there is still time to entice men with my naked ring finger.

  23. HoustonGrl says:

    I prefer a wedding band, but I’m very traditional. I think both Harry and Meghan are very sentimental about this wedding and I wouldn’t be suprised if they checked every marriage box.

  24. Surely Wolfbeak says:

    “He doesn’t even wear a signet ring.” LMFAO Hello Magazine.

  25. naan says:

    Single gal here. First thing I look for is a ring and if I don’t see one on an attractive man then I pay a whole different kind of attention. Like flirting, my best angles. Yeah, that’s how that works. That’s why we have social cues like wedding rings. And that’s why even married special sno flakes who don’t wear rings as a personal preference (eye rollz) are shady. Because they know that even if their spouses don’t. Maybe they like the ego boost? Shady af.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Also a single gal here. I dont think we need to worry about William or Harry hitting on women because they aren’t wearing their rings. They aren’t exactly regular Joe Schmoes.

    • Merritt says:

      I would never rely on the absence of a ring to determine whether someone was single. Unmarried does not mean unattached. Also, some people just don’t like wearing rings.

    • BendyWendy says:

      That’s also why we have social cues like ignoring your advances. I assure you, flirting with my bare fingered spouse goes absolutely no where. To each his or her own.

    • LNG says:

      If the only thing preventing my husband from cheating on me is his wedding ring (like a chastity belt for his finger!!) then we have a problem. I don’t much care if single ladies flirt with him, as we have an adult relationship built on trust. He’s a big boy, he can deal with a stranger flirting with him (and I wouldn’t blame them – he’s hot!)

      The argument is even more ridiculous when applied to William because, as Valiantly notes, virtually no woman who would find herself in his presence would be unaware that he is married.

    • ABC says:

      I’m pretty sure ring or no ring William will do as he likes. Kate as much as admitted it to Chelsey, saying something along the lines of having to turn a blind eye to them cheating. Be nice to think he was faithful but I doubt he is, he has too much opportunity to play away and ‘everyone knowing he’s married’ won’t stop a lot of girls. Kate is well taken care of, and William will do whatever it is he does. It obv works for them both.

    • SilverUnicorn says:

      Lol so you would end up with one of those married men who purposely take it off he he

      Never trust the absence of a ring as proof.
      Hubby and I never wore one. I can tell you that even after knowing he’s/I’m married we had people making their moves on us.
      Many single women/men actually do not care if the object of their desire is taken…. therefore in a marriage the most important part is to love & trust each other. Wedding rings are not magic rings and do no forbid anyone to cheat.

  26. Sonja says:

    My best friend is getting married in June and she also decided that she will not wear a wedding ring. Her future husband will wear his ring. And that is fine with her future husband. She doesn’t like jewellery at all. So she also doesn’t have an engagement ring. She didn’t want one and she told him when they first started talking about their future life together. Don’t buy expensive ring I won’t wear it. And yet, they are really an amazing couple and have been together for a long long time. So in my opinion, this is really a non story. If Harry doesn’t like rings, it is ok to not wear one.

  27. Meh says:

    I am an engaged woman and hate jewelry. My hands tend to swell and shrink depending on how cold I am, and I frequently wash/dirty my hands. Weddung rings aren’t happening lol. I have no problem with people’s preferences, regardless of whether or not I share them.

  28. deadnotsleeping says:

    The husband hasn’t worn his ring in years. I doesn’t bother me in the slightest. I don’t actually wear my wedding rings anymore either. He replaced the originals with something shinier for a big anniversary and that’s all I wear now.

  29. BendyWendy says:

    It’s not shady to not wear a wedding band. I’m without mine 70% of the time and my husband is always without his. It’s not a priority for us. We’re busy, actually being married and raising a bunch of kids and not being worried about jewelry.

  30. Taxi says:

    There’s nothing shady or wrong with not wearing a ring & a man’s choice in this area is no indicator of marital devotion or fidelity. Some people, not just men, have large knuckles, so a ring which they can get on is loose & slides around, distractingly. Some people have such small knuckles & tubular finger shapes that rings don’t stay on or are uncomfortable.
    My husband lost 3 rings in the first year we were married – once while we were swimming in the Carribbean & it slid off his finger & glittered as it sank, another while washing his hands, (it went down the drain, past the J-trap & couldn’t be retrieved even after taking the plumbing apart, & # 3 taking off a ski glove – we did find that one in the snow.
    I told him I’d rather he didn’t wear one at all.

  31. tw says:

    On a side note, I think Harry started taking Propecia. His hair has been looking fuller lately.

  32. Starryfish says:

    Your ring finger isn’t the only way to wear a wedding band, that’s what struck me about William never even having one made. To each their own, but I’d want my husband to wear one in some fashion.

  33. LittlefishMom says:

    That’s actually a tradition?! What the f*ck. That is so wrong on so many levels.

  34. PJ says:

    “he doesn’t even wear a signet ring”(!) May be one of the funniest, most British things I have ever read 😂

  35. TeamAwesome says:

    My husband was pretending with our nephew this weekend that his wedding ring was the ONE true ring. Our nephew, being 3, was in awe and wanted to see it. The hubs told him if he lost it Gandalf would be mad and he needed it back so he could hide it from Gollum. I may have been inwardly freaking out. Both of our rings are family heirlooms, and I love that there’s a history behind them even more than what they mean to us.

  36. Heidi says:

    Just imagine the outcry if Kate had claimed the same right – not even slipping a ring on her finger for the ceremony!

    I can’t help it – if only the wife has to wear a ring, it reminds me of a branded cow. It signals to everyone: “This one is taken!” whereas the husband is still as free as before?

    • A says:

      Right? That’s the part that kind of annoys me. If my husband doesn’t wear one, then I’m not going to bother either. Think of the “”"scandal”"” it would be if Kate took off that ginormous sapphire ring even once.

      At any rate, it’s shady that *William* isn’t wearing a ring. I don’t think its shady in general, to each their own and all. But given what we know of William, it’s never been much of a good look for him imo. That’s just me being petty, most probably, but w/e

    • Darla says:

      YES. This is what I don’t like. Agreed.

    • magnoliarose says:

      It has nothing to with cheating for me either. She wears hers so proudly it just seems lopsided, and I think Kate is the type to like traditional things like that. I hope she doesn’t mind at least.
      As the future monarch, it seems a little odd. Not because of cheating or anything but because of tradition. And she wears hers.

  37. Lainey says:

    This article is full of so many inaccuracies. Philip wore a ring until the swelling in his fingers got so bad he had to remove it. Charles wears one now and did when he was married to Diana too. He didnt take Di’s one off until the day before he married Camilla. He wears one now on hispinky finger alongside his signet ring like a lot of aristo men.
    Will’s ‘doesnt like’ jewellery excuse is odd as he wears a watch and bracelets all the time.

  38. perplexed says:

    There are men who wear rings and still cheat anyway, so I don’t think rings make much of a difference in terms of fidelity.

  39. Twinkies says:

    I’m a woman married to a man and I don’t wear a wedding ring. We bought a matching sterling silver set at a kiosk at the mall just before we got married. His got lost within the first few years. I think mine is too small.

    I don’t wear rings. I have very short, thick fingers and I feel like rings draw attention to my short, thick fingers. I also wash my hands a lot and I was always worried about getting a rash under the ring. I had a set from a family member that I tried to wear for a while. It looked ridiculous.

    Eventually we bought a gemstone ring for me to wear on special occasions. But I rarely remember to wear it. I do wear other jewelry from my spouse on a regular basis. It’s been nearly 20 years and I doubt I will ever wear a traditional set.

  40. themummy says:

    How is it shady that William doesn’t wear a ring? Everyone in the world knows he is married, so it’s not like he’s trying to pull one over on anyone.

  41. Terri says:

    I believe the theory that he and Meghan may already be married. It would make sense as to why this engagement seems to rushed and why she is being allowed to ‘break’ Royal protocols already. Poor Harry is being taken for a tide by this manipulative, lying woman.
    As for William, he is not shady because he doesn’t wear a ring. What nonsense. I bet its killing you Sparkle fans that Kate has Diana’s most precious jewelry sitting on her finger and MM only has two small diamonds.

  42. PrincessK says:

    Does Kate wear a wedding ring? I only see the engagement ring.

    • Harla says:

      Yes she does. Going up her finger it’s her wedding ring, her engagement ring and then a diamond eternity band (that I’ve heard she bought for herself to prevent her engagement ring from sliding off). It’s tough to see her wedding ring because the engagement ring covers it.

  43. maryquitecontrary says:

    I lost my hubs to cancer a few months ago after a 6 year cancer battle and a 30 year love match.

    My husband was a fabricator, a builder of custom motorcycles, a custom automotive painter, a sign painter. He never wore his ring. And that was OK with me. His loyalty to our marriage, our love, and his personal commitment to his own honor and to our family was unquestioned.

    We had our rings tattooed on, but that probably won’t work for these two crazy-in-love kids. :)

    Best wishes to this new couple for a long happy life together!

  44. Anare says:

    No big thing. My hub is not a jewelry guy yet he has faithfully worn his wedding band and now a 25th anniversary ring that I gave him. I am a total jewelry ho but gained a few elbs and my wedding ring didn’t fit for years. Hub didn’t care. I didn’t stray. I’m thinner again now and still rarely wear my own wedding ring bc it’s gold and I prefer silver or white gold. Hub gave me his moms wedding ring which is silver so I usually wear that. It reminds me of my mother and father in law and what a great love they had. ❤️

    This is so stupid. Of course there are non-shady reasons to not wear a wedding ring. Some women who have labour intensive jobs choose not to wear rings. My dad doesn’t like jewellery and doesn’t wear a ring and my parents have been married nearly 30 years. This is a ridiculous fake controversy
