Wearing A Wedding Ring Is More Important Than You Would Think. Here’s Why!


For many generations now, wearing your wedding ring is the common ritual practised by almost all societies around the world. If you look through the pages of history, you will find that this concept of wearing the wedding ring has not evolved in recent times. Instead, it has been prevailing for many years.

However, have you ever wondered what is the reason behind this?

And why does this ring hold so much significance?

Here are a few reasons why it can be important you wear your wedding ring:

1. Showcase of commitment and availability

Having a ring on your finger or not is a strong indicator to people on your availability and how committed you are to your partner.

Basically the fact that you are wearing your ring is a sign to other people. That you are committed in your marriage and it is important to you. It is also very important to your spouse to show you are not scared to show you are taken and committed to them when you are apart. It builds trust in the marriage and should prevent others getting confused on your marital status.

2. Shows responsibility to your partner

A wedding is an act of connecting to another person on all levels. The moment the wedding vows are exchanged, there is a promise that your other half will be considered in all your undertakings.

The ring on your finger will remind you that your actions from now on are impacting another person as well as yourself. This will remind you in times when you must choose between two or more options, that you must consider your partner and how your choices will impact them.

3. Symbolizes respect towards your partner

Your wedding ring can also act as a trigger for you to think about the decisions you choose to make keeping your partner in mind. With your wedding ring on your finger, there comes an added responsibility, and that responsibility is to keep your partners respect in mind.

You must understand that you are no longer single and that your actions can affect not only you but also your loved one too and therefore you must think twice before making certain decisions and ask yourself: “Am I being respectful to my partner by taking this decision?”

Respect is crucial not only in marriage but in any relationship, keeping your partner in mind at all times will ensure that your relationship/marriage is a stable one, and also a quiet way of expressing the importance of your partner in your life.

4. Defends from infidelity

A key reason as to why you should wear your wedding ring at all times is to avoid or block out any unwanted attention. Infidelity is one of the biggest reasons behind marriages ending in divorce, and it is something that a lot of married couples are in doubt of even though they may not admit to it.

Having your wedding ring on can prevent such unwanted consequences from occurring as it clearly sends a message to anyone that you may interact with daily, that you are in a committed relationship. It is also said that the most common cause of infidelity is often emotional disconnection from your partner or feeling unappreciated or unloved.

These feelings cannot be completely avoided as every married couple faces their ups and downs, yet you can still do your part by wearing your wedding ring every day in honour of your partner and to prove that you are and always will be attached, committed and respectful to your partner as discussed above.

5. Gives children a secure impression of marriage

If you are a parent and want to show your children the true essence and importance of marriage, you are going to wear your ring at all times. To demonstrate to them that your marriage matters. Showing children that marriage can be a beautiful experience will make them strive to create trustful and beautiful relationships in the future.

Although a healthy marriage is much more than a ring. The ring itself is a representation of it. It will give children the chance to talk about it and the marriage that it represents.

6. Reasons to not wear a wedding ring are never good for marriage.

Of course, there are those people who cannot by any means wear rings. Or are restricted by their line of work from wearing rings. They could be allergic to metals.

Any other excuse for not wearing a ring can be either a matter of preference or a reason that does not support marriage. There is no downside of wearing your ring. When you are truly committed to your partner and consider them in everything that you do.

Wearing your ring is one of the surest and simplest of ways to show your marriage stability, partner, and the trust between you. Do you think that wearing a wedding ring is really that important to a sustainable and stable marriage?
