TOPIC: Should Adventists wear wedding rings?

Should Adventists wear wedding rings? 2 years 10 months ago #42919

I know that lots of people in the church wear wedding rings, but other people are against it. I'm pretty sure my parents do, or else it's because it doesn't fit them anymore :P . I just wanted to see what everyone else thinks :)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

I like to call them "jewelry" and I don't think they're acceptable. I think Paul said something about jewelry or "outwardly adornment" and I agree that women should not put all that stuff on their bodies.

Should Adventists wear wedding rings? 2 years 9 months ago #43847

My mom wears a plain silver wedding band, as a symbol that she's married. Most people today, when they see a ring on the left fourth finger, or "ring finger", take it as a sign that that person is married. One time my mom lost her ring gardening, and while she was in a grocery store a man started talking to her, while glancing at her left hand several times. When he saw that she wasn't wearing a wedding ring, he asked her out. She had to explain that she was married, and it was kind of awkward. I think that as long as it's a simple band, then it's okay to wear a wedding ring. But it doesn't need to have a bunch of gemstones on it or anything or be showy.

This is just my personal opinion, and I respect everyone else's. :)

I don't see a problem with it, or even engagement rings. I would wear one. ;) It's different than wearing jewelry to me, because it symbolizes that you're 'taken'. You aren't wearing it for adornment, you're wearing it to tell other guys that you're already claimed so they'll leave you alone. (Yes, I'm a girl)

There is absolutely NO problem with wedding rings! It is a reminder of the promise you have made to your lover. In the Bible it doesn't say Don't you dare wear jewellery because all jewellery is bad" Don't over load yourself with jewellery but you are allowed to have a ring...

As a symbol of their faithfulness, not as jewelry. A simple ring is okay for me, not a whole diamond mine.

I believe that wedding rings represent whether you're married or not. It's a public demonstration of your vows to one another. It's not immodest to wear a wedding ring, it's a symbol, the same way baptism is a symbol of your commitment to Christ. It doesn't have to be big and fancy, it can just be small and simple.
I totally respect it if you don't think people should wear wedding rings, I just think otherwise :)

Exactly!! I was with a friend in Old Navy, and for some reason we started looking at the rings and stuff, and we were just like, "When i get engaged, he can just buy me a cheap ring like this, he doesn't have to spend thousands of dollars on it!" :P

Once I was listening to this story on Pathway of the Pioneers (talking about the beginning of Seventh-day Adventism) and Ellen White's daughter in law was asking her if it was okay to wear a wedding ring 'cause she was going to be traveling around with Willie (Sister White's son) doing ministry stuff and she didn't want people to think that they were unmarried and doing... you know..stuff, and Sister White said it was okay to make sure that others knew that they were married. A wedding ring isn't (suppose to be) a large rock on your finger for you to show off to everyone to let them know that you've got a rich husband. Its so that others know that you're taken (like what everyone else was saying).

I agree with many ppl that accept wedding rings. They are symbols, and usually they are quite invisible, unless someone is looking at it. The point that defines this ring contorversy are the beliefs or principles, or preferences of the wearer. I don't believe that other people should influence weds into not wearing these rings. And many times when we hear the word ring, we think of two things, jewelry, and or symbol of one's marriege. What do earings show? Or necklaces. Fine you can have some exceptions, mmahhshsaiuhrlfliasdk..........ahhhhhhhhhhh! Sorry, I'm talking to much. The point is, it depends on the person. But wedding rings are also a sovenir you can take with you. I am for wearing wedding rings, and respect other people's opinions.
So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give you praise
Lord, let me praise you
For the grace by which I'm saved
Lord, let me sing

- Chorus of "Let me sing" by Andrew Peterson

No, of course that's nothing wrong with it. It's a symbol of your commitment and love to that special person in your life.

There's a difference between jewelry and a wedding ring. Wedding rings are to show that your married and aren't trying to be flirted with.

There is Absolutely nothing wrong with wearing wedding rings! True that you don't want some big rock just to show off, but when i get married, i want to have two or more Diamonds as long as there not HUGE!! but i want some thing that's not to expensive but not so cheap that's its rubbish. so i think that there's nothing wrong with wedding rings :lol:

no matter what u think of yourself
no matter what your past is like

All over the NAD, there are stories of married Adventist women who don't wear rings being flirted with at work because the men flirting with them don't know about their beliefs. The story always ends with the man being embarrassed.

The Bible does mention an adornment, and our church teaches against it, but our church ignores the fact that culture defines what an adornment is. By definition, men shouldn't wear ties ever, because a tie has no other purpose than decoration. However, in Western culture, wearing a tie is almost required in formal and professional settings. In Western culture, people respect the wearing of rings as a sign that the ring's wearer is married, and therefore, they (should) respect the marriage.

Pagan origin is not enough to abandon something. When the SDA church was first founded, its members not only believed full organization would make the church Babylon, as other organized groups had fallen away, but refused to say the days of the week, and instead called Sunday "First-day", Monday "Second day", and so on and so forth. Eventually, these members realized they were standing guard over nothing.

Paul had no problem eating food dedicated to idols, because he knew that no other god had power, and he knew who he served. In the same way, me saying Tuesday does not make me a worshipper of Mars, and the married deaconess isn't a pagan prostitute just because she wears a wedding ring.
Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the needy and oppressed.
-Proverbs 31:6

Ellen White said: "Some have had a burden in regard to the wearing of a marriage ring, feeling that the wives of our ministers should conform to this custom. All this is unnecessary. Let the ministers’ wives have the golden link which binds their souls to Jesus Christ, a pure and holy character, the true love and meekness and godliness that are the fruit borne upon the Christian tree, and their influence will be secure anywhere. The fact that a disregard of the custom occasions remark is no good reason for adopting it. Americans can make their position understood by plainly stating that the custom is not regarded as obligatory in our country. We need not wear the sign, for we are not untrue to our marriage vow, and the wearing of the ring would be no evidence that we were true. I feel deeply over this leavening process which seems to be going on among us, in the conformity to custom and fashion. Not one penny should be spent for a circlet of gold to testify that we are married. In countries where the custom is imperative, we have no burden to condemn those who have their marriage ring; let them wear it if they can do so conscientiously; but let not our missionaries feel that the wearing of the ring will increase their influence one jot or tittle. If they are Christians, it will be manifest in their Christlikeness of character, in their words, in their works, in the home, in association with others; it will be evinced by their patience and long-suffering and kindliness. They will manifest the spirit of the Master, they will possess His beauty of character, His loveliness of disposition, His sympathetic heart. – {1TT 601.1}"

And if you say that you need it to "show" your taken:

First, act like you are married. Don't talk to guys all laughing and smiley and acting like you are single.
Second, dress like a married woman. No miniskirts and all the other rubbish women like to wear.this makes you more seductive to guys.

If you do these things and try to follow God's will, then He will protect you, and will keep the creepy guys away from you.

I like the wedding ring not just as a symbol for being married to other but to ones self. I imagine if you got into a huge fight with your lover and left the house the weight of that wedding ring with continually remind you that you still Love your Man and need to go back and fix what is wrong.
