It's been five months since Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber got married in a small, private ceremony in New York City.
By all accounts, the couple is enjoying married life and have settled nicely into the roles of husband and wife.
But fans have noticed that Justin has yet to embrace one of the most important symbols of his new life.
Yes, the Biebs refuses to rock a wedding ring -- and because the internet is gonna internet, many are taking this as a sign of trouble in paradise.
An insider recently confirmed to In Touch that Justin prefers to go ringless most of the time.
But the source swears it's just a style preference and has nothing to do with his views on marriage or Hailey.
“Justin doesn’t like wearing a wedding ring,’’ says the insider.
“He has a wedding band, he just refuses to put it on."
Not surprisingly, however, Hailey is reportedly less than thrilled about Justin's refusal to rock the band in public.
“Hailey wants her marriage to work. Wearing a ring is symbolic, that’s why she wears one," the source says.
"Not wearing one sends a message too, and that’s not the message Hailey wants out there. ”
We haven't seen a ring generate this much drama since Frodo's encounter with Gollum!
But while it sounds like tensions are running high in the Bieber household a separate source tells Us Weekly that Justin and Hailey are still head-over-heels.
“Hailey is not going to leave Justin and he won’t leave her either. She’s been so supportive of him throughout this process," says the insider.
Apparently, it helps that Hailey is a realist and accepts the challenges that come with being married to one of the most famous musicians on the planet.
“I’m not going to sit here and lie and say it’s all a magical fantasy," she recently told Vogue.
"It’s always going to be hard. It’s a choice.”
We're sure the Biebers face complications in their marriage that most couples could never imagine.
That's one of the reasons we're really hoping the rumors about a Justin and Hailey reality show turn out to be true.
You could say we're nosy, but we prefer the term "inappropriately curious."
