Re: What do you wear on your finger ''after''?

[ Edited ]

@sarahpanda This is a very hard week for me. On Sunday the 13th it will be 13 years since my wonderful DH died at age 60. I will never stop wearing my wedding band.

 

I have no problem with people who stop, it's such a personal decision and everyone has their reasons.

@Sooner There's nothing wrong with it. If it's not to your taste (shrug).

One reason why I would never start a thread on these boards. I see nothing wrong with this discussion.

If you find yourself in that unfortunate situation, you will know what feels right to you.

@proudlyfromNJ It's a very typical remark by Sooner. I just shrug her off.

Re: What do you wear on your finger ''after''?

@sarahpanda  My husband passed away a year and a half ago.  I still wear my engagement and wedding rings. At this point I am not ready to take them off. I may wear them the rest of my life.  I may stop wearing them tomorrow. I don't put that kind of pressure on myself.

 

To be honest, I still consider myself married and so I wear my rings.  Plus, I love my rings.  I know that legally I'm not married anymore, but tell that to my heart.


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

It is difficult to know what I would do under such sad circumstances.

 

My knee-jerk thought is I might take my engagement ring off and wear my wedding band and his on a gold chain.

I only see one remark that is not productive.

@Love my grandkids   Just so you don't commemorate the wrong day, Sunday is the 13th, not Monday.
