    Congrats!!!!
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

      Shouldn't be any different wearing a wedding ring for someone with tetraplegia vs. AB. As far as putting the ring on your bride, I was at a great wedding where the groom had a C4 injury, and he practiced ahead of time with his brother (best man) to put her ring in his mouth at the right time, and then slide it on with it lips. Very sexy, and very cool! Congrats!

        Been married to NL for almost 50 years. After my injury, I didn't feel comfortable wearing my wedding ring because in rehab we were told that jewelry of any kind, i.e., watches, bracelets, necklaces, rings might catch on wheelchair parts and cause injury.

        I treasure my wedding ring, but a wedding ring doesn't the marriage make.

          Best wishes for a long, happy marriage. I have been wearing my wedding ring for 51+ years now. It has never been a problem. I have never heard of a wheeler who had a problem wearing a ring of any kind. Our wedding was limited to a $500 budget and took place in our university chapel. The chaplain took charge of the rings. I had him place my wife's ring in the palm of my hand and guided her finger into it with the other. When the tip of her finger was in the ring I tilted my hand while she raised her fingers upward. The ring slid down a bit and I was able to push it on the rest of the way with my index finger. I have kept my fingers from contracting so my hands are open.

            I don't wear one. Rings tend to be uncomfortable for me.

              I always wear my ring; never had a problem. After 45+ years, I simply don't remember how we got the ring in place.

                    Do you mean when you are around your wife or when you're out in public alone??... Kidding. I got married last Summer and haven't had any problems wearing mine. I also have a college ring on my other hand so sometimes I roll around the house knocking my rings on my handrims with each push just to make some noise and wake up my lazy dog. The wedding band I was married with is white gold over silver. I only wear that for special occasions. I beat it up really quick. So like fuentejps, I wear tungsten. They are cheap on Amazon so you don't have to worry about buying another if something happens to it. I tried titanium, but that didn't last much longer than the white gold/silver one. A lot of people have told me that the tungsten is a bad idea in case something happens to the finger, as doctors can't cut it off. But that is a bunch of crap. You can youtube videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jT9xsw_ElhE) and they'll show you that with a few taps of a hammer the right way it will crack open.

                    Congrats!

                      Very many congratulations!


                      Although' "she who must be obeyed" and I have been together for 22 years we've never tied the knot so I'm afraid I can't help re. the ring, in the UK only about half of married men wear a ring, I don't know why not, probably to save time removing it when picking up other women...

                        Congratulations! You wear your wedding ring like most married men do, through your nose.

                          Congratulations! Lots of good responses and cheerful advice here. I'm not a guy but I've been married for 32 years, had C5 incomplete injury for 46 years,
                          wore my ring on my fourth finger left hand until ten years ago when I started having mild AD (autonomic dysreflexia) symptoms especially at end of day from
                          ordinary pressure on my skin, anything slightly binding like elastic or jewelry, including my wedding ring. Likely due to aging. Enjoy wearing your ring but if you ever experience AD symptoms, remove it right away. Now I wear my ring on a necklace, but it was fine on my finger for decades before it wasn't. See how it goes,
                          'there is always a way' to find a work around. Best wishes for your life together.

                            Thanks everyone! I'm concerned of it causing a wound. No worries there?

                            I've missed this place. Now that I'm not sitting at a PC for hours to search(iPhone) around I don't seem to find my way here too often. Plus there was a lot of drama, and I kind of remember being disenchanted a bit with the place after Adi_Chicago(I think that was his name) was kicked off of here. I know there was just cause.
