When we get married and someone labels us with a ring to tell the entire world that you are already taken sometimes we think that’s all. There are good reasons why we wear that ring. First of all wearing your ring in public shows the world that you value your spouse and the covenant of your marriage.
When you meet someone new for the first time, and they will often make assumptions about your character and your “availability” based on the presence or absence of a ring.
There is this lady who has had affairs with a lot of married men, and she says the reason she even talked to them in the first place was because no one wore a wedding ring. Later, after she had slept with them, they would tell her they were married. She tried asking them why they didn’t wear their rings and they all gave the same explanation:
They don’t like jewelry. All those married women out there whose husbands aren’t wearing rings should be worried. It’s never an innocent choice. Secondly even those who appear in the public wearing them are not the righteous type because they find some private time, remove them and misbehave.
Psychologist Gladeana McMahon said that a lot of men may not want to feel that they are ‘owned’, or look like anyone’s possession, and may feel this is the message given out by a wedding ring.
They wear it to make you happy but deep at the bottom of their hearts, they hate it. That’s why some of them secretly remove these rings to enjoy that freedom they want. The fact that he leaves home with it does not mean that he spends the day wearing it. In this case if you think that the ring will bar him from adultery, you just joking.
Many men don’t need the emotional commitment to symbolic objects like keepsakes, love letters and the like that most women have. For men who want to marry, the action of getting married is what is important and not the object representing it.
Women, on the other hand, show their feelings more and they talk openly about them and think there is no problem showing them in public. This is why most women want permanent proof of their commitment in marriage.
That’s why today’s married women would no doubt laugh at the idea that their wedding ring symbolizes that they are their husband’s ‘property’; instead, they view it with pride as a sign of an important commitment. It is now this very commitment we are questioning whether or not it exists.
The mere fact that there are women out there specifically looking for married men to date them is enough to tell that a ring, to some extent, may not keep your man safe. It is more than a ring; it is someone’s commitment at heart.
