Written by Peter Crump

So, youíve just got engaged.

Whether you are a man or a woman you have an important decision to make (amongstrepparttar myriad of other decisions) about mens wedding rings. Itís this. Willrepparttar 136273 man in your relationship wear one?

Maybe thatís you, maybe not. But you both need to think about it.

You see itís only sincerepparttar 136274 second world war that modern men have started to publicly display their marital status byrepparttar 136275 wearing of a man wedding ring.

Prior to that it was rare for a man to wear a ring when he married. Men were able to hide their marital status behindrepparttar 136276 tradition that required a woman to wear a wedding ring, but not a man.

However duringrepparttar 136277 war many US soldiers chose to wear mens wedding rings as a public symbol of their marital status whilst away at war and that has started a tradition forrepparttar 136278 modern man. Now itís very common for a man to wear a mens wedding ring, perhapsrepparttar 136279 norm.

So, what decisions need to be made? Wellrepparttar 136280 first is this. Will he wear one? Thatís probablyrepparttar 136281 hardest decision inrepparttar 136282 process.

For a woman thereís no decision. Sheís engaged, she wantsrepparttar 136283 ring. For her she needs an engagement ring as well as a wedding ring, and an expensive engagement ring at that. But for a man itís not so straight forward.

So a very important part ofrepparttar 136284 process is for both of you to talk about it. Do you both have strong feelings aboutrepparttar 136285 man wearing a man wedding ring, either one way orrepparttar 136286 other? Doesrepparttar 136287 woman feel that if she is to publicly display her marital status then itís only fair that he dorepparttar 136288 same? Does he have any reservations about wearing a ring and if so what are they? You both need to talk over your feelings aboutrepparttar 136289 wearing of a man wedding ring. Establishrepparttar 136290 groundwork.

Once and if you have made a decision that he will wear a ring then thatís justrepparttar 136291 start. Itís perfectly possible to buy a his and hers matching wedding ring set. These are rings designed as matching sets for you both so that both your wedding rings go well together. So are you going to look for matching rings, or just buy him a ring and focus on hers separately?

Next you have to decide what type of ring. Thereís a whole world of designs for mens wedding rings out there. An enormous range of styles and materials. A man makes a statement about himself in selectingrepparttar 136292 ring he will wear for his wife, and she is a part of that statement if she is actively involved inrepparttar 136293 decision.

Think about his personality. Is he outgoing or shy? Is he outrageous or conservative? Is he flamboyant? Understated? When he buys clothes what does he select? Does he buy colourful flamboyant ties or ties which fit in withrepparttar 136294 style ofrepparttar 136295 suit? Would he wear clothes which make him stand out fromrepparttar 136296 crowd or does he prefer to meld in?
