    I don't think she worries that other girls wouldn't know he's married, the whole world knows about it.



  2. 2

    Who cares!?!? It's their decision.. They can do what they want regardless of what you think! Who are you to judge them!



  3. 3

    It's not as though people won't know he's married, but personally if a woman is going to wear a ring AND change her name then maybe he should at least put a ring on his finger.

    My father has never warn one and his father who was an anglican minister never wore one. I wonder if it is an English thing?

    I think that's pretty normal..I actually can't think of any guy I know who actually wears his wedding band, oddly enough..hm…

    …don't let him get away with that kate……

    I personally would be ticked if my husband didn't wear a ring. But I'm an average person. I think everyone and their mom knows that he is married. He doesn't necessarily need the symbolic ring to show it.



  8. 8

    Who cares EVERYONE knows who he is and that he will be married. Beside when has a wedding band stopped any one from cheating it didn't stop his Mother or his father.

    they have a fricken fridge available for purchase with their faces on it- who DOESN'T know they are getting married. a ring is only a ring.



  10. 10

    Either they both should or none of them should

    Derrrr! Something tells me that pretty much every woman prince william meets will know he's married. Unless that is he meets some forest gnome that has the hots for him.



  12. 12

    Only women care about the ring and its usually just to show off.



  13. 13

    I would NOT be happy if my fiance wouldn't want to wear one but this is prince William, everybody knows he's getting married so it's not like women who will hit on him will think he's single.

    my father never wore his ring - he's allergic to all metals…..

    people put to much importance on a ring. if your man (or woman) is gonna stray, doesn't matter if they have that piece of jewelry on or not.

    were in to showing off your jewels! check out www.PrincessDiStyle.com to get your royal on!!

    Most military aviators can't wear their rings when flying and don't wear them at all for work. That could have some bearing on his choice. Not to mention, he's one of the most recognizable figures in England and probably all of the world…I'm sure most people he comes across knows who he is and that he's married (or will be…)

    They are being old fashioned. Back in the day, it was not uncommon for only the wife to wear a wedding band. You used to see in wedding announcements in the paper from time to time a wedding described as a "double ring" if both had wedding rings. Every now and then you will still see announcements make a big point of announcing a double ring wedding, but not so much anymore.

    who cares — no one's business — i don't wear one and don't care what my husband or anyone else thinks about it — and don't give a crap if my husband wants to wear one or not — let's worry about more significant things, like the little 4 year old Japanese girl featured on the homepage of msnbc writing a letter to her mother that starts with "I hope you're alive."

    my father & hubby have never worn their rings. It's not a big deal. I think women who need their men to wear a wedding ring are insecure. Besides everyone knows who he is and that he is married.



  20. 20

    its actually a British custom among the upper class and royalty to only have one ring, usually the bridegroom wears a signet instead, prince andrew, nor prince charles(when he married lady diana) wore wedding bands, and if you look back at british history neither did prince albert, so its not that he wants to have affairs or any silly thing, for them its tradition, why don't you learn how to report news properly before sensationalizing something you don't understand/have no knowledge of



  21. 21

    It's a fairly modern thing in the Uk for men to wear a wedding ring! I can defo see why he dosen't want one! Especailly as he's a royal!



  22. 22

    My husband doesn't have a wedding band. It's mostly because of his line of work; he doesn't want to damage it or lose a finger or anything. It doesn't bother me, either: I know he loves me, and he wouldn't stray. He's just not that type of guy.



  23. 23

    That's their choice, and if she's okay with it then I guess no problem there. I personally would want my husband to wear one. I think it's kinda sexy personally.



  24. 24

    In england its only been in the last century that men have started wearing a wedding band. my dad doesn't.



  25. 25

    I'm all for tradition and I think it is a little bizarre when a man chooses to not wear a wedding band. My fiance doesn't want to wear a ring but he is going to get a tattoo on his ring finger, mainly because he doesn't like jewelry. I've also heard horror stories of rings getting caught on machinery and ripping fingers off. There's plenty of reasons as to why someone may choose to not wear a ring, but for me, it seems strange when a married man has no symbol of his marriage available for all to see. To each his own!



  26. 26

    I am sure the mistresses he takes up with ,after they are married, won't mind if he is not wearing his ring.



  27. 27

    Wedding bands are usually a symbol showing two people are married. Why would they need that when they have a FRIDGE? Hah. This marriage is ridiculous.



  28. 28

    Re: YooMegs – it would make more sense if it's an "English thing," since it's so easy to forget what other cultures practice. but i would wonder why, if the woman gets a ring and it's an exchange of vows, the man wouldn't get one? but whatever, like it's been pointed out in other comments, this is the wedding of the century, so i don't think Kate will be worried about it not being known he's not single anymore lol

    I'm female ““““ married for 17 years and “DO NOT “ wear my wedding ring.
    I like jewelry“` just not on myself!!



  30. 30

    Been married for 10 years, I dont wear a ring neither does my husband



  31. 31

    My Husband doesnt wear his wedding band, he just doesnt like rings.



  32. 32

    The whole world knows he's taken, it's not like anyone is going to mistake him for single just because he doesn't have a ring on. My dad never wore a ring either.

    I kind of want my partner to wear a ring if we get married, because we travel internationally seperately a lot and it would make me feel happy and close to him if I knew we were both wearing rings. I know it sounds silly but all these 'traditions' are a bit silly aren't they?



  33. 33

    Doesn't matter for some couples. I would want my boyfriend to wear one when we get married but he is a correctional officer and they usually dont wear their rings to work. My dad never had a wedding band and my parents have been married for 37 years. Some couples just don't care either way. They know they are married and love each other.



  34. 34

    Question is: will William be the very first Prince of Wales without a mistress? Since his father said he wouldn't be the first POW without a mistress when he ws married to Diana… I think Kate knows what shes getting into.



  35. 35

    I dont think its wrong. My husband has never worn a band. As far as I see it I trust him. I dont need him to wear a ring to PROVE hes married. We are legally married but I dont really need a piece of paper from the government to tell me Im committed to someone either.



  36. 36

    well my hubby and I have been married for almost 11 years now and I can say we have both worn our rings a total of 100 times maybe. He can't wear his to work b/c of safety issues and I am just not a jewelry person. When we go out on dates or someplace very special we do wear them then :) Well if we don't forget lol



  37. 37

    it doesnt matter everyone knows he is married

    It's not like every single person in the free world won't know he's married for christ sakes. Who cares. It's just a ring, just like the legal marraige is just a piece of paper…. it's what you do, how you behave, how you treat your spouse, how you love them and treat them every day that really matters.

    And besides, the only person's opinioin who matters in this is Kate's so…. if she's cool with it, then why the discussion?



  40. 40

    I can see why if it's tradition. But the ring is not about other people knowing your married. It's about the symbol of the unbroken circle, continuous love :)



  41. 41

    I've been noticing that a lot here lately. One that comes to mind is Donald Trump Jr. I find this disturbing because I know how females are, especially gold digging tramps. They'll play dumb and think oh he wasn't wearing a ring, that's fair game. My man will be wearing a ring, that's for damn sure.



  42. 42

    I think everyone will know he's married…..

    Re: BeautifulDisaster311 – The ring is no barrier to some women, and for some, the ring is catnip. Ring or no ring, it's about trust and personal values. A ring is not a good barrier.
