Most women prefer to believe that their husbands never take off their wedding ring unless they are doing dirty chores such as washing the dishes, but a recent survey concluded that happily married men who are in a loving relationship are still drawn to obscuring their marriage status when out without the other half.

The figures show that a surprising number of men said they remove it when not with their spouse or even when simply popping down the pub with friends. The reason? Because “You never know who you might meet”. Admittedly, men in a happy marriage are still on the lookout for a “better” partner or simply a one night stand.

It is shocking to see how little value a matrimonial piece like the wedding ring means to some people” said Bethany Harper, at

"An increasing number of family households have one full time earner due to the lack of jobs, so the time married couples spent apart is worrying”

“Both couples seem to be exhausted from the stresses of looking after the kids and longer hours and it seems that Men are starting to play away looking for part time flings at any opportunity"
