I think it's a good sign also. My H stopped wearing his in 2007. I didn't realize that he was letting people think we were divorced back then. I thought we were happy but he had gained some weight so it was uncomfortable on his finger.
Fast forward to now - after we started our R, I told him part of my requirement was new rings. I can't stand to even look at the old ones. He agreed. We both have new rings now. He wears his proudly!
