Do you wear your engagement ring or wedding band to bed?

Personally - I can't fall asleep with it on! But my husband wears his band 24/7 Smiley heart

    I only take my ring off when I shower, or am going to be doing something with my hands that might get my ring super dirty

    Actually I can relate to both sides of this one, when we 1st got engaged I never took my ring off. After loosing a diamond out of my ring and noticing that it was always dirty I stoped wearing it to bed. Now it’s just normal for me to take it off and put it on the dresser before bed, and my fiancé does the same (he has a wooden band and a silver band). Whether that will change once his silicon ring arrives I’m not sure as he won’t even have to take it off for work anymore.

    I never take mine off! I know I should sometimes but then I worry I’ll forget it somewhere or lose it. My cat has a thing for jewelry and I don’t feel like having to pay for a vet to pull something else out of her bowls lol!

    I only remove mine when going tubing at the cottage or assisting with surgery at work, otherwise I feel so naked without it

    Yes, I only take it off when moisturizing or making something that involves kneading.

    I remove mine when I go to sleep and when I have to do chores/errands that are more hands on.

    I part time at a ski rental shop and made the mistake of not taking it off, i thought I chipped the diamond... My heart stopped, never again!

    Yes.
    it only gets removed before washing hair, applying moisturizer, going to the gym/swimming, having my nails done and making meatballs by hand.

    I sleep with mine on, I never take it off unless I have to clean it. Maybe see if you can get silicone bands made, there suppose to be really good, not slide around, you can get them engraved and there less expensive so you can have fewer worries about losing them. You can wear your real ring to events or date nights out with your husband.

    I sleep with mine on. I actually don’t feel it, because I am used to wearing jewelry 24/7.

    I only wear my rings when I'm out. My hands get warm really quickly and then it gets uncomfortable, so I where them to work or when I leave the house, but anytime I'm home, I take it off and keep it in it's dish where it's safe.

    I wear mine to bed. I only take it off to shower, do my hair, and do the dishes or cook messy hands-on food.

    I never take mine off. I have never seen my mother take hers off—even to sleep or shower, so I have always planned to wear mine 24/7, so that’s what I do.

    I tried sleeping with mine on when we first got engaged; I found my finger was swollen in the morning. I now take it off and put it on a little silver bunny ring holder next to my bed every night!

    I take mine off to sleep as I move around so much and my fingers swell. I usually take it off once I get home at the end of the day as well.

    I'd never be able to fall asleep with it on. Plus, my fingers swell at night, so it wouldn't be fun dealing with that in the morning. If I'm home, my ring is usually off and put away. I don't wear it while cooking/cleaning, etc.

    I take it off when I'm in the shower but thats it. I have a fear of it falling down the drain.

    I wear it when I go out but usually when I am home I don't wear it. I never wear mine to work. I work with way to many chemicals and would never want to chance getting an acid or something on it. Sadly it probably spends more time in the box then on my finger.

    Seems to be a common theme! I take mine off only to shower, cook, use hand cream, or do dishes. Definitely leave it on to sleep. I also leave it off to blow dry my hair since my hair always gets caught in the setting.

    I wear mine most of the time, minus when I’m washing dishes and cream. I love my ring, and would hate to see it full of guk or cream.

    I take mine off, I wear it when I go out. I don't wear mine to work because there are way too many spots where I could lose it/it get dirty, etc.
