Why Do Most Married Men Don't Wear Their Rings?

Dear Ask The Black Man,

Why is that married men don’t wear their wedding rings? This occurs especially with men in high profile positions. Would you please explain?


Ask The Black Man:

Hello Delta,

I feel you are making a really broad generalization here. So many married men wear their rings with pride. If there are some that don’t then maybe there could be understanding between he and his spouse as to why he doesn’t. There are probably some that just don’t maybe for selfish reasons. Who Knows? Even if that's the case you can’t let one bad apple spoil the bunch.

In regards to high profile married men not wearing their rings, the last time I looked the highest profile man in the United States, President Barack Obama, wears his wedding ring. Again, you can’t make a judgment on all men.

I feel in our society the “ring” has more of significance to a woman then a man. Women pick out their dream ring and put a lot of meaning in the ring they more than men do. Perhaps if there was a mutual feeling with this than it may be different. Also, some men don’t like to wear rings in general.

Lastly, my question to you is: Is it the ring that makes the marriage or is it the actual communion between the two people?

That’s my 99 Cents Worth.
