Do you wear your wedding band when you play?

I have a wedding band that’s white gold (nothing to fancy) but I bought a silicone band about a month ago. Its so much more comfortable and really enjoy wearing/playing with it. It doesn’t scratch my racquet and I can play without worrying about damaging it or injuring myself because I’m wearing it. Anyone else wear a silicon band while playing?

I got the Groove life band btw.

Yes, for 26 years to the same person.

In the 3rd year of marriage, my ring fell into the toilet bowl but I did not know it, and my wife was very upset.. We had several guests for the next few days, and they all used the toilet. After they left, I found the ring still there, in a small corner, in spite of all the times the toilet was flushed. From that day, I don't wear the ring.

I don’t know what to say. You must have been thinking about the inner meaning of that for months.

Honestly, I’ve never listened again to the band that played in my wedding.

Any kind of band is a sign of being imprisoned in some way. Humans make dogs wear collars, employers make workers wear badges, events provide plastic bands to identify if you have paid, prisoners wear monitoring devices, etc. You should learn to be free of such things.

Means you are damaged. Is that what you think wedding band signifies? I thought it signified being together for life and signaled that the person was taken. But it has become a joke with divorces and "serial" monogamy in between marriages, and affairs on the side. The bigger problem is that among those who still believe in marriage and wear the rings for a reason, many are of the morally smug type which do not like gay marriages - so their supposed virtue is actually a harmful one to others.

What about a lap-band?

I was married for about 18 years before I started wearing the ring I had blessed. I don't like the feel of jewelry, other men in my family growing up didn't all wear one (hey, for men, some backgrounds don't make rings a big thing), and didn't want to catch my finger and lose it----I get into a lot of projects, etc., and I've always had a queer phobia of losing body parts----probably due to my grandfather telling me about these kinds of things when I was a kid and we did woodworking projects together. It plays on your mind. But when someone close to me started having marriage difficulties, I realized a bit more what a personal blessing my marriage has been and started to wear it. It's solid gold; bought it in a pawn store in Peoria.

Wedding rings, wedding dresses, expensive honeymoons, destination weddings - these are all ruses to keep the wedding industry going. Ordinary people go bankrupt trying to keep up with others.
Our wedding rings were about $86 each. Didn't break the bank back then.

Definitely don't wear a wedding band when lifting.

I’m a lefty and wear my ring on my left hand. I remove it to play because I don’t like the feel of it against my grip.

A wedding is an event, no?

Have you paid?
