Are you a Widow/widower and do you still wear your wedding ring?

As some of you may know from my posts, my husband had Cancer. Sadly he lost his battle at the beginning of the month. My sister thinks it's odd that I'm still wearing my rings, but for me it's too soon to remove them. The question is, do you still wear yours, if not when did you stop wearing them.

i think that you should wear them for as long as you want to, i have never lost anyone in that way but i think that when someone has been such a huge part of your life for so long then you have to let go of things and move forward in your own time you only lost them recently so give your self a brake, ignore everyone else and move through the greaving prosess at your own pace.

wise words! Thank you Kat. I think you're right, I'll know when and if it's the right time to stop wearing them.

I am not personally a widow but my mother and mother in law are. My mother lost her husband June of 2007 and yes she still wears her wedding ring. She even has his wedding ring around her neck. She tells everyone it is part of her. My mother in law lost her husband to cancer Dec 2008 and she is also still wearing her wedding ring and also states it will never come off. Annmac I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I havw seen what these two have been going through and I know it is not easy at all. If there were anything I could do for you I would. Please dont give up faith and know he loves you. Take care and GOD BLESS!!!!
