When should I take my ring off?

Just wondering when you took your wedding rings off after a divorce? Was it when you seperated? When the divorce went through? Does anyone still wear theirs "for the sake of the kids"?

I've been seperated nearly 2 years now, hoping to get divorced in a few months. I would like to meet someone else which isn't gonna happen if I'm still wearing my ring, but as I'm a single mum and her dad doesn't ever come to see her I don't want my neighbours talking... maybe I worry more than I should?

What are your views?

I took mine off the day I left him. I didn't want my children to think there was any chance it would work out. Crap, I had to leave immediately and I moved 1400 miles away to keep my kids safe. Kids deal better when they know the facts and things aren't sugar coated.

i first moved ring to other hand hun, i still felt and was married but it was a transition. i took mine off when decree nici came in the post, sent kids off got a chineese had few glasss of wine looked through pics cried and then at the end i sad goodbye and took the ring off and put it in my jewelery box and 6 yrs later it is still there. it is and always will be a part of my life so i wont get rid of it, i dont get it out or even think of it or him, but i know it is there. x
do not even think about what anyone else thinks it is your life.
but it is time to move on, put it on the other hand huni and take that first step a hard but important one. x
