I admit, I am not a follower of the Royal Wedding, but this was on the news while I was at the gym yesterday, so I was something of a captive audience.
According to various media publications, Prince William says he will not be wearing a wedding ring after the wedding. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/01/prince-william-wedding-ring_n_843451.html
This story was followed by a whole bunch of negative comments, including one charming women who stated, “When I got married my husband did not want to wear a ring, so being a reasonable person, I gave him a choice, either wear the ring or get a tattoo on his forehead that said, ‘I’m married’ – Ha, he has been wearing his ring for 15 years now!”
Personally, I don’t think this is a big deal. He is Prince William – about 99% of the English speaking world will know he is married. But I may be biased. My father never wore a ring either. What do you all think?
