My Husband Doesn’t Wear His Wedding Ring – What To Do

By Mackenzie •  Updated: 11/08/21 •  3 min read

What do you do when your husband does not wear his wedding ring? There are many reasons why a man may decide to not wear his wedding ring. This article will give you some ideas on how to deal with the situation.

Understanding the problem

A man’s marriage is an important part of his life. It is not unusual for a man to feel he needs to give his ring back after the wedding. However, it is important to understand that a wedding ring is not a symbol of possession but rather an expression of love and commitment.

The decision to not wear a wedding ring is not the same as a man cheating on his wife. He may simply feel he needs to wear the ring during certain activities, such as when he goes fishing or hunting. The real problem comes when a man decides that he does not need to wear his wedding ring anymore. This is often due to the fact that he is trying to “be more independent” or “he wants to try something new”. Whatever the reason, this decision may cause some serious problems in your marriage.

The effects of this decision can be devastating

If your husband has decided that he does not need his wedding ring anymore, it will have a huge impact on your marriage. The lack of emotional support from him will make you question whether or not you are doing everything right as a wife and mother. You may feel rejected and resentful towards him for doing this to you and for ignoring your feelings and needs as a wife. He may also start acting differently towards you than he used to. Perhaps even being less loving and affectionate towards you, even though you both still love each other very much.

How to deal with the problem?

There are many ways you can deal with this problem. It may be difficult for you to accept his decision, but remember that it is not your fault. You cannot control his decisions, but you can try to understand why he has made this decision and what the consequences will be for your marriage. Here are some suggestions:

  1. Try to understand his reasons for doing this. You might discover that he is trying to be more independent or trying something new.
  2. Try to accept his decision and focus on the fact that he still loves you very much and will come back to you soon enough once he has had time to think about what he wants in life. Be patient with him and do not force him to wear his ring again just because you want him back into your life again.
  3. Try to be understanding of his decision and respect it. This may be difficult for you, but remember that he has the right to make decisions on his own. If you continue to feel hurt and angry towards him, then this may actually drive him away from you more and cause problems in your marriage.
