I hope you got cash for the ring and used those exact dollar bills to pay for your food, otherwise the money you received was inextricably commingled with the funds already in your bank account like dye in a swimming pool, and the "taint" of that ring will continued to flow into any and every tangible thing upon which you hereafter spend your money.

Thanks for letting us know you masturbated.

Subby, the ring must be taken deep into Mordor and cast back into the fiery chasm from whence it came.

Is it just me or did that entire article sound like a woman wrote it?

Holy freakin' crap are you a teenager?

It's a few grams of gold. You sold it. Move on with your life.

I'm the guy who's got a ring problem. I've got this alexandrite band set in a platinum ring I bought for $30. Who the hell sells a PLATINUM BAND for $30? Someone who got it off a corpse, I bet. What kind of funky shiat happened to that ring. I'll never know. But it's there, in the band, inexorably linked to some strange event, and it will bug me forever. And when I sell it to someone, it will bug them too.

My wedding band was a plain, narrow inexpensive gold one. I just threw it in with some other "scrap" gold I had and sold it all.

Did you see your divorce attorney at the high dollar restaurant? He eats there almost every day.

1. Sell Ring
2. Use money for hookers and blow
3. ???

As we speak, there are children starving around the world and people that will never know freedom because they live under the threat of dictatorship. Brothers will fight brothers because their country fell into despair and civil war. Right now, a woman is deciding if she should pay for electricity or her prescriptions since she cannot afford insurance and doesn't qualify for state aid. We face increasing debt as companies greedily take money but don't provide for their workers because their green god demands more sacrifice. Some veterans are wandering the street since they couldn't come to grips with PTSD and the VA has been delaying with potential treatment.

But, hey, I'm happy that you figured out what to do with the stress of getting rid of your wedding ring. Nothing worse shall come to you

/BTW, you'll remember this night and remember that you paid for it with the symbol of your failed love.
//have fun!

You're not alone.  At the end of the article I went back and double checked the author name.  Must be all the talk about nice clothes and being skinny.

Don't be throwin' crap our way!  If a woman DID write that, and I'm not saying one didn't, she's a farktard.

I unfortunately have been divorced twice.  Acrimoniously. I have new earrings and a very nice right hand ring.

And unless that 'guy's' ring was set with enough diamonds to be mistaken for a pimp or a mafia member, there's no way it bought him dinner at Per Se unless he also blew the chef.

I was thinking "Is your ass still sore?".

Threw my first one in the river, but will sell the current one when the time comes. Live and don't learn, that's me.

Gee, with that kind of clear and rational thinking, it's kind of hard to imagine that a guy like that would be divorced...

When you do sell it be sure to ship it on a fake severed finger just to be sure.

Wow...haven't read that since 10th grade. Made me cry right in the middle of my creative writing class.

I pawned my wedding band AND my engagement ring when my first husband and I split up. Didn't get
much for either one, but oh well. The engagement ring was secondhand anyway - he bought it to give
to the girl he dated before me but they broke up and she gave it back to him.

Ugh.

Mine is at the bottom of a lake.

Felt good to throw it out there.

/wasn't a very expensive ring in the first place.

I lost my second wedding band a few days ago so I"m getting a kick..............

My wedding ring is in my dresser. I haven't looked at it in over a year now, and I don't plan on doing anything with it unless I suddenly go broke.

I've considered getting mine melted into a small pendant that says NEVER AGAIN.

Throw me in with the "thought it was a girl crowd". It must have been a heavy ring if it bought him a bottle of Dom and a high priced dinner.

One of the best song lyrics I've heard in a long, long time
'Down at the bottom of Lake Pontchartrain, there's a love note carved inside a wedding ring.'

ThatDarkFellow: Sell the ring and stop being a biatch. Christ.


This, too. Sack up, dude.
