Wedding bands and engagement rings

What do you married ladies do?
I'm currently wearing my wedding band and my engagement ring, but I've seen a lot of women that just wear the band.

Is it really just personal preference or do you typically change over after x amount of months/years?

Haha I have neither at the moment, but chances are I'd wear both most of the time, perhaps only the band when doing sports activities or anything where I'd be afraid of the engagment ring getting damaged or lost.
Just my 2 cents.

I'm totally not married but my mom is! Haha She got her engagement ring and wedding ring put together so they're basically one ring and she hasn't had an issue in the 25 years they've been married. I think it helps though, that the rings they got were part of some sort of set or something so the engagement ring looks like it should go together like that with the wedding ring.
My grandma on the other hand just wears/wore her wedding ring all the time.

i absolutely love my wedding ring. unfortunately, i spend about 90% of the week at the barn and don't wnat it to get destroyed. i got a plain thin white gold band that i wear pretty much 24-7. when i get a chance to go somewhere that doesn't involve riding boots i get to wear my wedding ring.

My fiancee and I are just getting married next October and due to money being an issue, we are just buying one ring for each of us and having them be both our engagement and wedding ring...I know it sounds strange, but hey, being different is good.

I was married once before for 10 years, and I wore my wedding ring and my engagement ring for the whole ten years doing everything from cleaning the house to training horses to showing. I never took either of them off and I never had an issue with losing the diamond.

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I wear both all the time- well sometimes i take them off when riding or bathing but most of the time i forget where i put them and freak out

So normally i wear both or take both off (if i remember) and put then in my car...

You can have them fused together if you want.
