To wear your wedding ring to work or not wear it to work is the question, and depending on what you're trying to accomplish, I believe I have the answers. Things are absolutely less Carol Brady and more real life Cougartown in today's business world. If you're a successful, money hungry, healthy man in your 20's, you have the largest net. You have other 20-something year olds to whoa over, and now a new and sometimes fresher audience, the older, powerful, confident cougar pool, married, divorced and single to boot! Advance your career and learn a new skill or two between the sheets.
If your a man, wear the wedding ring. It amplifies stability, value and structure, these are charming and notable characteristics to superiors, do I smell promotion? And also attractive characteristics for social reasons to boost. The idea of a married, committed, family man still does the trick for many women of broken or uneventful marriages. Not to mention single girls in their 20's, hello Steve Phillips.
If you're a woman, leave the ring at home. If you're trying to maintain your position of authority, move up the ranks and demand respect, leaving the ring at home creates the vision that you're 100% committed to the job. Your mind isn't clouded with school lunches, after school practices and rehearsals and maybe even, you've passed up the family dream to make business and success your priority. Assets that will get you ahead in business and can easily become a turn-on for anyone from a social standpoint, man or woman. Who doesn't like a women that's confident, mysterious, and on a track to success.
its a wedding ring, a symbol of commitment and a sign that you are taken, wear it anywhere and it doesnt have any connection to your job etc.
People will do what they like to do even if they have rings or not anyway...
Yes, Sandy, just wrote the post in the forum. Brand spanking new to HubPage, so bear with my etiquette if it's rough around the edges at this point. Essentially my discussion point is bringing happy hour talk, things people think about, or notice in daily life but are afraid to say or talk about out loud. And more importantly, how to get ahead in the dating world, business world in less traditional ways, or maybe I should say, its less about the 'pressed suit and tie' then people realize. My post ignites the simple questions, do people agree, disagree.
I would say the decision to or not to wear your ring to work has more to do with work environment than position, male or female.
In some jobs, such as a mechanic, it is dangerous to wear your ring, as it could get caught and rip your finger off. Others, such as that of a nurse, it is a place it harbor germs and must be removed every time you wash your hands.
If these things are not a concern, then wear the thing with pride!
Wear the ring no matter if you're a man or a woman.
You're actually trying to make it more like the "pressed suit and tie" scenario when you make the wedding ring an issue.
The only time anyone should leave their rings at home is when they have a job like working with machinery where the ring might get caught on something, or where they might lose it during their job.
I don't wear rings, or any jewelry. I never understood the appeal. However, I used to wear a wedding ring and stopped after twice getting it caught. If you have a job where you are working around machinery, you shouldn't wear any rinds and loose clothing or necklaces can also be dangerous.
That said a ring won't do anything for your career or for your love life if you are otherwise unappealing.
Oh, sorry, Ivorwen! I was replying to Oprah Jr. in that last post of mine.
Looks like you and I think the same on it!
Theres another ring out there that could get someone a promotion, but it doesn't go on your finger lol.
A wedding ring is a symbol of your love and commitment to each other. Any men or women should wear it wherever they go. . . in their office, mall, church, or any other place.
I don't agree that only women who doesn't wear a ring can gain respect and authority at work. There are a lot of happily married women who occupies top position in their own field. They should be admired more because they were able to balance their family and career life.
All - Do you think the following high profile married men and women sported their wedding rings in their workplace? Steve Phillips, Bill Clinton, Jamie McCourt, Eliot Spitzer, Kwame Kilpatrick, Mark Sanford, Rick Pitino. Just sayin...
Sounds chauvinistic and almost like you're advocating marital infidelity.
The only good reason to not wear a wedding ring to work is if you work with heavy machinery, hazardous materials, etc.,. If a company denies a woman a promotion because she is married, that is a violation of her civil rights.
I understand the connection OJ was trying to make, however the issue is usually around women hiding pregnancy for as long as they can when they are trying to get a promotion (i.e recent episode of Desperate Housewives). The idea behind this is fear of not getting promoted because with a pregnancy and newborn will mean time off and perhaps a shift in priorities. I have not seen the same thought process with being married. Again I am saying I understand the thought process, not Agreeing with it.
I think it depend upon you. If you feel comfort with it then you can. Since the engagement ring is a symbol of your unity and eternal love so you can wore it.
i have always worn my rings at all times. However there are so many infections, coming in to nursing homes, to clean our hands absolutely thoroughtly and avoid contamination, i no longer have any rings on my fingers
