My husband and I also don't wear rings often. We'll still wear them for special occasions where I would also be wearing a nice necklace, bracelet, earrings, or whatever. I'm not a jewelry wearer and work around kids all day every day, so having a diamond ring on isn't really conducive. Keith also works a job where the ring could get damaged so he leaves his behind. We're not trying to hide our marital status at all, we just only wear jewelry when we feel like it.

I just have two questions re terminology used in this thread: what do "dtf" and "10&4's" mean?

Well, no idea on the second but the first is "Down to fuck"

Personally I've found the easiest way to let my man know that is to just tell him.

I sometimes take my rings off for work (and then have to remember where the heck I put them!) No point in taking them off to meet people as anyone I am likely to meet will, in all likelihood, be introduced to me by my husband in the first place (he's the social one).

If MrS wants to take his off then he is SOL - he had it tattooed on years ago after he kept trying to lose his original one

"Down to fuck?!!" Wow, this is the lexicon nowadays? Whaever happened to a simple "available?" Man, do I feel old.

10&4s is a shift work, where you work four days at ten hours per day (40 hour week, but only four days). Current bf has that shift.

In my org, we call them 'four-tens'. As opposed to nine-eight-eighties, which is nine hours per days for eight days, and the ninth day is the day off. A nightmare in time keeping is what that is.

My wife and I both always wear our wedding rings. There is only one time my wife had taken her ring off and that was at a special ceremony for her boyfriend that a lot of his friends and family were attending. It was primarily to keep friends from asking questions, as his family knows she is married.

Other than that, prior to meeting someone new, they are well aware we are married ahead of time, and more often than not, when meeting someone, they meet us both together first.
