I have been married for four years and "usually" wear my band. However, there are various occassions when both my wife and I do not wear our rings; gym, work, motorcycle riding, yardwork, etc. There are times during which you should definately wear it, especially if you are out with friends, at a social gathering, or a bar without your spouse. Really, it depends on your partner. If your spouse thinks you should always wear it...then it would behoove you to comply.
