I took mine off a couple months or so before I finally built up the courage to walk out. He never even noticed.

I took mine off probably within an hour of finding out about his girlfriend. It wasn't the first time he'd cheated and the marriage was pretty much over by the end.

I'm now wearing a ruby ring on my left ring finger. It's the ring that my dad used to ask my mom to marry him, and ruby is my daughter's birthstone. That is my only finger it fits on and for some reason, I'd procrastinated on getting it resized... somehow that gives me a huge sense of comfort now.

I took mine off Jan 1. A couple hours past midnight.
It's been a bit over 2 mos since we sep. I thought the beginning of the new year was symbolic.

I took mine off and left it on the kitchen table with a note when I walked out the door. It was just my everyday band, my diamond I kept and gave to my daughter in law just this year. It was freeing for me. For awhile I wore a heavy silver love knot ring on that hand to remind myself that I love me and I am worth buying myself a ring for.
