Has anyone else noticed that Trump does not wear a wedding ring?....

Just saw that tonight while I was watching MSNBC. My Dad didn't wear one, he worked around and with machinery. When he got married he was in the Marines, and that was the way it was.

But in 2016, it's less likely for a man not to wear a band. What does this say about Trump, particularly in light of what we have seen and heard today.

Maybe he thinks if he doesn't have a wedding band, that he's not really married & he can do or say anything he wants to in regard to women.

1. If we go to the photos, and look at him on his

wedding day, and now, I'd guess he outgrew the thing.

The fingers are short, and chubbier than they were a decade or so ago....

5. Eh. I don't wear one either and I work on a computer. Been married 39 years . . .

Just don't like the feel of rings on my fingers.

7. Neither do I or Mr. Retrograde

And we've been married 42+ years. I lost mine about a year after we got married, and haven't felt the need to replace it. I'm with you - I do a lot of hand work and don't like the feel of rings.

Donald Trump is still the most embarrassing candidate from a major party this country has ever seen, though - ring or not.

8. Definitely. But there's plenty of issues of substance on which to hold him to account . . .

a wedding ring -- no matter how illustrative of trust and partnership -- is not one of them.

Could you guess the genesis of the wedding ring?
Mesopotamian cyclinder seals were altered by Egyptians
into the shape of a ring with the sacred horned beetle,
or scarab, carved on top and some personal design
incised on the undersurface. So, if a ring was reversed
it would serve very nicely as a seal of ownership;
and a man who placed one on his wife’s hand
signified that he was entrusting to her custody
all of his possessions. In other words, it symbolizes
not bondage as we commonly suppose,
but absolute trust.

9. Remember he's got tiny little hands. It keeps falling off?
