So women over 35 ish, why aren't you wearing your wedding rings?

I am excluding men because men who don't wear their bands either don't because they work with their hands (voltage etc.) or work their hands on other women anyway.

Young generation I am excluding because I think younger people probably are more likely to do the open relationship thing so who cares about a ring then.

But I see you older women not wearing rings. I know you're not cat collectors, not spinsters.

I know you're not available.

So what gives?

How many times have you had to tell me you're married to hold me at bay?

I have even forced a woman or two to start wearing that ring again just to kryptonite me.

I want real answers here because this is a very disingenuous thing to do.

Several things come to mine:

For some it's the same reason as the men, working with something messy that get's stuck in rings,
or they want to mess with men.

Some it's a weight thing. The older you get you can have huge fluctuations in weight and how a ring sits on your fingers

Some older women just tire of wearing jewelry

btw. I don't think a ring is a deterrent for some men, if anything the opposite

I'm always puttering around with something. Cooking, gardening, smallish house repairs. Rings get caught on everything.
You start forgetting where you put it, or you put it in your jewelry stash, and forget to put it back on...
lose a small bit of weight, and the thing starts falling off...

I used to wear a lot of rings when I was younger, and worked assembly line, now they're all put away. Certain jobs, your pockets are full of your rings.

My husband doesn't wear his either...they get in the way at work.

Many reason:
- my hands are in the dirt constantly (gardening), and I like to do hard labour work
- eczema that likes to form in that moist hidden area that the ring covers
- fluid retention some days
- hang it up at night and simply forget to put it on
- I've had it repaired three times and it's just a hassle to worry about it all the time
- at this age, someone look at me like that??? Ha, ha, ha!
- I used to wear it as a badge of honour, now I feel like I'm like a branded cow
- and once or twice, I have been beyond furious with my husband (even though I still love him).

It's dangerous when you work with horses.

I worked construction all of my life. When I got married 40 years ago it was for good, the ring stays on. Note: it doesn’t protect against Cougars.

35'ish is old?

I had to pick a number. Do you want me to say I chase after 65+ seniors in the bingo hall?

I'm 43 and not married, but if I were, I would wear my wedding ring. I always wore my wedding ring when I was married.

Awesome that you consider a woman over 35 as an "older" woman, btw.

That kind of still doesn't explain the horse-ring deal and now I want to know. How is it dangerous to wear a ring around horses, whether they be dangerous or not?

I don't wear mine because it slips off too easily... But I really don't like rings anyway. They hurt when doing too many things.

I always wear it for special occasions.

It isn't always a deterrent though... Some men seem to think it's a challenge. You sound like one of the good guys.

Thanks for being that guy

I'm answering for my wife. She is allergic to gold, it stains her fingers. She is a hairstylist and jewelry gets caught in customers hair. She outgrew it about 20 years back.

As for myself, I work with my hands, and I outgrew it about 25 years ago. Our 29th anniversary is in a couple months, neither of us is worried about the other cheating. I was an over the road truck driver for 20 years. We both had ample time to cheat, but we don't live that way.

I don't hit on women. I hit a bottle of booze.

As for the pants..
