    Man, who am I to tell someone who lost their loved one to take of their ring. No way!

    Definitely not. They can keep it on until they feel like they're ready for another possible relationship. It that answer is never, then so be it.

    How rude Jacob. It sounds like you've never lost someone you love. You never just "get over it."

    Elena honey, you do what ever your heart tells you to and don't ask these social misfits for their opinion.

    I was being sarcastic.
    Both of the options provided seem ludicrous to me. "Time to take it off" is downright horrible, and "wait till you're ready" seems to imply that, at some point, you're supposed to be over your lost partner. The question and both of the answers provided seem to indicate that people think "getting over it" is required at some point, which it isn't. That's what I was mocking.
    I'd like to say "learn to detect sarcasm," but I really can't. I have no doubt that many people would echo my comment straight-faced, in all caps, and mean it, and that's simultaneously sad and hilarious.

    No not at all. I'm not even upset. Just sees really stupid to bother with a question you thought was stupid. I see stupid questions, I just pass them by.

    Perhaps these blazingly intelligent questions you answered were more to your intellectual level.

    I kept my ring on after my husband died until my fingers got to thick to wear it any longer. It always made me feel connected to him.

    This just means you miss him so there is nothing wrong with that. I think you're old enough to make your own decisions and not ask others what to do.

    You can wear it til the day you die. Unless you are marrying someone else, you don't ever have to take it off.

    If you want to wear the ring forever then do it the first reason is simply because it your ring, your finger, and your life thus you can do whatever you feel, the second is it would be more surprising, to me at least, if someone was to abandon the ring soon after the death of their spouse. Take your time as long as you want and take it off when you feel ready, the only way it would be wrong is if you are still wearing it 5 minutes before you remarry.

    I used to work with a wonderful woman whose husband passed away some time ago. She still wears her ring and tells people she's married.

    Some people remain true to their deceased spouse even after death. That's perfectly honorable.
