Prince William Will Not Wear a Wedding Ring – Kate Will, Of Course

The future King of England, Diana’s son William, will not wear a wedding ring after his marriage to Kate Middleton. It’s just a matter of “personal preference,” don’t cha know. No doubt, Kate had no choice, and…she’s okay with it. How’s this for one the most insulting statements ever:

  • I’ve been married for 46 years to my high school sweetheart. We gave each other rings, which I wore faithfully for years until it became too much trouble to take it off when I worked around metal turning machinery. It’s really unsafe for a man who works with his hands to wear any type of a ring. So I slowly got out of the habit over the years of wearing it.

    I asked my wife if she minded that I don’t wear the symbol of her love like some men do. She asked me if I needed my ring to remind me that I’m married. I said, of course not, to which she replied … so what’s the big deal? We don’t need our rings on our fingers to prove our love. Some might … we don’t.

    But she does wear hers when she goes out anywhere in public. So it is a matter of personal preference for many reasons. I don’t like wearing a watch either … but that’s just me.

    • Yeah Carl, but you didn’t ask your young bride to start out that way:-)

        I like to also say that a watch and a wedding band are two different things. Orange and Apples – both fruit, but different tastes, smells, look, etc. A watch tells time, a constant reminder that it is tick-toking away. A wedding band is a symbol of unity that is worn to represent two becoming one. One is a trinket, the other a treasure.

        Exactly! Could William at least wear a wedding ring on his most important day of his life? What an insult to Katherine! What message does this give to women all over the world???

  • Maggie … that is true. I was proud to wear her gift to me. I don’t understand this line though … “It is quite common for men in that strata of society not to wear a traditional wedding band.” Why not? It makes one wonder doesn’t it.

    Interestingly enough, this is not horribly nontraditional. I’m a modern Roman Catholic, and in the 1962 Missal the Marriage Rite only blesses one ring, the woman’s. This is because the Christian understanding of marriage at that time was that men LEAD women into marriage, and she accepted that with his ring. Much like what the modern engagement ring has become- and men don’t wear those!

    Prince William is an Anglican, no? Probably following the same tradition, since they broke off from Catholicism, but kept most of the antiquated traditions.

  • Mine rarely wears his. He usually has it on his key ring. It doesn’t bother me, never did. He doesn’t like rings.
