When it's "the time"

  1. The Squeeze -- When your wife is in labor and you nicely give her your hand to hold, make sure it's not the hand you wear your wedding ring on.  (Give the fingers on your 'ring hand' a hard squeeze and you'll figure out what I mean.  If you do offer up the wrong hand, don't dare say anything trying to switch it -- it may hurt but she's going through a lot more pain than you are and you'll risk turning that pain to anger.)
