My DH doesn't wear a ring unless it's a special occasion or we're going out on the weekend. He's a tradie, so wearing a ring during the work just isn't practical.
He lost the ring about 9 months after we got married and didn't replace it. It turned up about a year later.. But, yeah, he didn't replace it when it was lost, so if it hadn't have turned up I think he'd still not have one now.
I think you're probably reading too much into the ring thing because you have some other issues to work through. I don't think guys look into symbolism as much as we do

It IS a problem if taking it off is out of character. Only you know how often he used to wear it etc etc. In MY relationship it would be highly suspect if my hubby stopped wearing his as I know it is important to him that he does wear it iykwim.
For other people it may not be anything unusual.. I have a friend who used to hardly ever wear her wedding ring because of her profession she had to remove them so as to not damage her ring, for her relationship it was fine. Etc etc

As said above the problem goes a lot further than not wearing a wedding ring.
My cousin never found a ring he loved so had one for the ceremony but doesn't actually own a wedding band

After my husband lost his second wedding ring we accepted they just weren't his thing. He lost them because he was constantly taking them off, and he was taking them off because they annoyed him. I really couldn't care less.
I wouldn't assume that the ring is in any way related to your other issues, but it sounds like you could benefit from some help. It doesn't have to be expensive, I would start with my GP and take it from there .

I can understand where your coming from about him not wanting to wear the ring. what does he do for a job? my hubby is a boiler maker and it is dangerous for him to wear it to work and even wearing it on a necklace is a hazard as it dangles down while welding and then when you stand up it can burn his neck. He puts his ring on friday afternoon after work and takes it off sunday night. it did bother me to start with but realistically i don't want him to wear it because i'd rather he didn't get hurt.

I too think that counselling about your other relationship issues would be worthwhile!!
As for the weeding ring, for me personally, it wouldn't bother me. In fact neither DH or I wear our wedding rings. Ever. For DH it is a safety issue at work (sparky). For me, I just don't like wearing rings.

If DP ever proposed and we got married I know he wouldn't wear his ring. But he works in the building industry and it's just too dangerous to have a ring on (plus it would get ruined). I would suggest to him a chain and have it on there and he's said he would, but I wouldn't read too much into a ring, but if you have deeper issues might be time to address them.

I know if I ever marry my partner won't wear his ring. He doesn't wear jewellery now, so he won't start just because he's married, and he's not supposed to wear one to work anyway (electrician). I'd probably spend a lot of time not wearing mine too if I get a job in the industry I'm currently studying for. You're simply not allowed to.
I don't think the ring itself is an issue. I think you feel there are major problems due to sex though... but are there? Is he really that worried about it, or are you just assuming there are? Definitely work through SOMETHING with a psych...
