My husband took mine along with any other jewellery I had. The best thing is he still denies doing it. This included jewellery the children had bought me.

I took mine off shortly after He left but kept my engagement ring on but swapped hands - if you know my story you will know where it made an indentation !
.I bought the rings ,even my engagement ring !He took his off ages ago saying it was loose ,but I think it was for another reason ! I kept his and mine and will save them to pay towards the divorce - poetic justice !
I have decided to have my diamond set in a new band as it still reminded me of Him.

Divorced a year now and I still have the wedding ring given to me. He never wanted one, I suppose to keep options open for him.

Now the dust is settling, I think I will sell it and put the money towards something special for me. Just wasting it on the legal fees I think would not be worthwhile. So something for me, maybe towards my self-development or a spa weekend.

I do very occassionally wear it on the other hand for special occasions as it has lost all it''s symboilism but I won''t miss it when it''s sold.

Best advice is to hold on to it until you can choose more wisely without the pain.

My engagement and wedding ring came off the moment I learn''t of stbx affair. I have kept it though and have considered changing its setting, but one day it would be nice for my daughter to inherit her first diamonds.

Moved mine to the other hand as it is a nice ring and the fact that it was my wedding ring doesn''t bother me in the slightest.

Funny thing is kids suddenly noticed months later that it was on my right hand and asked me about it. They have never noticed that their Mother hasn''t worn a ring at all for a long time or think it strange that we live in different houses!

me n my x split on good terms and we had young kids. So I wore mine adhoc for a couple of years. I took it off when the Petition landed on my mat and was gutted. so my mum and my daughter bought me a beautiful dress ring that I worn ever since.
