Neither my husband nor I wear our wedding bands - or rings of any sort at this point in time.
I always mention my status as poly and married up front. While some people are perfectly comfortable and interested in poly, within that pool there are those that are searching for a primary partner or someone to marry or something that they feel I can't offer them since I am already wed in the legal sense, share finances, etc. with someone.
