Size 8 huh? I guess I'm not the only homebrewer with small fingers.

I got my titanium wedding band on sale for $50 (normally $150). I thought about tungsten because the don't scratch but I hate the weight of them...titanium does get marked up over time (like silver or gold would) but it's feather light and I can't see spending $300 on a wedding ring as an active man. My father lost 3 wedding bands in so far in his 35 years of marriage...it happens when you wear it most of the time and are active. After the second one he stopped buying gold, lol.

I got more attention from the ladies when I wore it than I ever did after taking it off. What is up with you ladies who like to hit on the married men??
Here here! My 6mo daughter also gets me attention from the ladies

Yes we do call it "snowball fighting" haha.

And regarding my small fingers, I actually need a size 7.5 I got an 8 because I take it off when I work on my car and power tools.

I actually like the weight of the tungsten because then I know it's there and I like the polished metal color of it as well, I've never been much of a gold guy myself.

When we went to purchase our bands the salesman said the one I was trying seemed just a tad too tight and he would stretch it up a half size. I promptly lost twenty pounds, these days down almost thirty from my original "ring" weight, and the thing will slide off my finger if I'm washing my hands, waving hard, standing motionless. It's way too loose. I need to get another one, but after ten years of dealing with the issue, I guess I'm just used to it.

Bob lost his wedding ring when we were only married about 6 months. We were taking our recycling and throwing it in the bins, and about two hours later he noticed it missing. So, I tease him all the time that he threw his ring away!

My dad gifted us with his wedding ring. My mom died in 1979, and my dad wore his ring for several years after she died but then he put it away. He gave it to me to give to Bob, and Bob had this one sized a bit smaller so it couldn't fall off, and he's been wearing it for the last 10 years.

I lost my wedding ring the morning after I got married. I was taking bags out to the car for an early flight. It was still dark and a shopping bag handle caught the ring and flung it off my finger into the gravel parking lot. I heard it land but never saw it since there were no lights in the lot. I backed up the car, turned the high beams on and found it after about 5 minutes. I had never worn a ring before so it wasn't the right size. Ended up getting a different ring anyway and storing the old one.

Also try looking on eBay. That is where my wife found my tungsten ring for ~$30.
