I may be a minority here, but there are plenty of times when I go out without my wedding rings on. I can't wear my rings to the gym without doing serious damage to them. Dead lifting with that super rough bar would scratch my rings to high heaven. I get really nervous about leaving them in the car, so I leave them at home. Post gym I sometimes run to the grocery store or to get coffee.
I don't feel weird about not wearing my rings. I don't feel more or less married without them on either. There is this constant thread on blogs and especially Instagram about never leaving the house without your wedding rings on. (This is particularly present in military spouse Instagram accounts.) I don't really care if people judge me for not wearing them, but I was wondering if I am alone in this.
Don't get me wrong, I adore my wedding and engagement ring. I just don't feel naked or weird if I am not wearing them.
