Wedding rings for men? Strange as it may seem the use of a wedding ring by men was not familiar until lately. Whereas women have worn wedding rings for eons, men have not. The use of rings as a symbol of everlasting love enshrined in marriage can be traced back thousands of years. But not so much for men. It was, in fact, during the Second World War that the use of wedding rings for men became more ordinary.
It became the custom for US soldiers going to war to publicize their marital status by the wearing of wedding rings for men. They were glad to make public their commitment to their wife by the wearing of a public symbol that declared that commitment to all. Given that this habit of wearing men’s wedding bands was rationally new it was all the more creditable that these men were willing to forego the marital obscurity available to them from not wearing a ring and actively chose to make a public statement about their choice.
Wedding rings for men have become ever more common since that time. Nowadays it is perhaps as common for a newly married man to wear a ring as not. This may be due to several factors. The modern man may consider it his duty to select to make the same public marital statement as his wife will. And his wife may well consider it a condition of the marriage that he does so. After all, in these days of equality, if she is prepared to make a statement then should he not do so as well?
