I was going floating on the Clark Fork with some friends and took off my wedding ring before we left the house. I didn't realize until Tuesday that my ring wasn't on. I always have my ring on, so I had a moment of panic. I quickly remembered where I put my ring, but talk about stressing out really quick. I had no idea how many men lose their wedding rings.

According to a Prudential home insurance survey, 10% of grooms lose their wedding ring within the first three months of getting them. 42% will lose their wedding ring within the first five years of their marriage. Some men are now buying two rings just in case one gets lost.

Have you ever lost your ring? Did you find it? How did you tell your spouse?
