I take it off when I lift weights and shower. I don't want the metal weights scratching the gold, and I'm afraid it will slip off and go down the drain in the shower. Doesn't come off otherwise.

I read an article a little while back about the increasing popularity of silicone rings. Athletes and people with potentially dangerous jobs can wear them without worrying about getting it caught and losing a finger.

My ring goes off and on. I put it on when the wife and I go out which is a couple time a week. The rest of the time its off.

I have two wedding rings, the original and the replacement. About a month after we got married my ring came up missing. Both of us looked all over our new house, cars, etc and couldn't locate it. After about a month I went to the original jeweler and bought a replacement. She was happy I did this and said all kinds of mushy stuff to me. This was in August.

The following March I was notified that our baseball team was going to start practice. I played baseball in high school and college and was now playing for a bush league team. We got paid $20 a game. I got to the field, put my uniform on and walked out to the field. I put my left hand into my glove and in my left ring ringer slot was my wedding ring.

When I got home I showed it to my wife. She said a lot of mushy stuff to me again. She also said wear the replacement and keep the original for a backup. I told her it was a good plan because I might need one for my second wife. She told me that it was not legal for a dead person to get married in the State of KY.

When we returned from our honeymoon I took it off and never wore it again. Several years ago we had it made into a wedding band that my wife now wears with her wedding ring.

I work around too much equipment and loose anything is a disaster waiting to happen. I'd like to (no big hurry) to die with most of my parts still intact.

I've not worn a watch since I left the military in 1970 either.

I wore out one wedding ring working around sand, gravel and dust with gloves on. The inside of a leather glove along with all the dirt and dust made short work of polishing the ring down to a narrow thin band. Took it off before it wore in two.

I had to have it cut of by a doctor about 25 years ago when it got caught on something when I climbed down from a strangers tree stand while deer hunting. Had it rebuilt but it has been slightly larger then the original and I have always wanted it resized a bit smaller.............maybe tomorrow. Other then that it's ALWAYS on my ring finger, but loose sometimes.

I've had it off a couple times in 23 years, mainly just to see if I can get it off. Just did it again while typing this. It still comes off but not easily.

To all co anglers if you draw a young man, I had all of the skin ripped off of my ring finger holding the grab handle. It hurts a lot, never again will I wear it again as a co angler.

Yes I take mine off every night when I get home from work. Put it back on when I leave for work. It's off on weekends unless we are visiting family or attending soctal events. I have a bizarre affliction that I can feel and taste metal on my skin. I can taste pennies in my hand. I was over exposed to lead when I was in my early teens from reloading shotshells, and pouring jigs. Doctors think it's related.
