Why He Won't Wear His Wedding Ring, By Zodiac Sign

The scariest thoughts of marriage involve the chance that it could one day end in a divorce. So much time, effort, emotion, and money go into the joining of two people.

When a spouse suddenly decides not to wear a wedding ring, it feels significant. A ring is a symbol of love, a sign to the world that a person is taken.

Marriage is expensive. Weddings are expensive, and the bands exchanged between husband and wife aren't cheap, either.

According to the Brides 2018 American Wedding Study, the average cost of a wedding reached just over $44,000. But of course, the ties of marriage extend further than the superficial level of finances.


Couples typically spend years of their lives getting to know each other and falling in love.

They share elements of themselves that they have never shared before. They become completely comfortable with each other, almost as if they are two halves of a whole.

The American Psychological Association reported that 40 to 50 percent of marriages end in divorce. That can be a scary and jarring statistic for many couples. After all, the whole point of marriage is a commitment ‘until death do us part.’

But it doesn’t stop the union from happening. In 2017, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported over 2.24 million marriages in the United States. You can’t control who you love.


Divorces are something that no one really sees coming. Relationships are such fragile and responsive things, that it usually takes many months, or even years, for the conclusion to finally arrive. Sometimes personalities just don’t fit in the ways that they once did.
