I guess I didn't put on the FML that I am a male. My wife told me that she wants me to wear my ring (except during work, which is Aviation and we're not allowed). I told her I wasn't comfortable wearing it in the ocean, and she said I had to anyway. After losing my ring, my wife bought snorkel equipment and I spent an hour diving for it until the sun set. My wife and I have been married for 5 years, and we both got a laugh out of it, and we purchased another ring the next day in a Hawaiian market that now has a story and more meaning than the first ring.

I'm so sorry OP! That's awful.

It's of no use now, the ocean has it. The same way Bangok had that guy from Hangover 3.

Wow 35. You're so smart. Too bad pop culture knowledge means squat.

Sorry OP, that's terrible; but that was a very bad decision. Why would you take your ring off in the ocean; Couldn't you wait until you were on land where it would be safe?

I'm married and I take my rings off all the time. When I sleep, when I shower, when I'm cleaning, and yes, when I swim. It's a piece of jewelry I intend to wear for my whole life; I want to keep it in good condition. And it's not like you magically become divorced the second you slip it off your finger.

I only take my ring off for work, showers and cleaning because I don't want to break it. I've already lost two stones in the three years I've had it from hitting it against counters, I don't want to lose anymore.

It depends on the ring, my engagement ring has stones that I don't want losing and that get caught on things very easily so I take it off to shower because it could easily get caught in my hair and pulled out when I'm washing it. I think if it was just a plain band, there wouldn't be so much of an issue and I'd probably keep it on all the time. But yeah, plenty of married people take off their rings in order to prevent damage. Doesn't mean they're less committed.

After losing the first stone in mine, my husband and I put both our wedding rings in my jewelry case. We have substitute rings, just two $30 plain gold bands, that basically say "hey, sorry, I'm unavailable" and we wear our original rings when we go to dinner and whatnot.
