    Bad idea! A ring symbolizes your union with ONE person! Get a new ring for a fresh start in a new marriage! Good luck & blessings to you!

    yes, I think it is wrong. give that ring to your kid or use it to sell to get cash for your new wife maybe buy her a necklace or bracelet now.

    I would not do that. Give that ring to your daughter if you have one, or offer it to a son. Or to a niece if your first wife was close to her.

    Typically Women are really REALLY Squeamish about that kind-o-thing,,!

    So unless the ring worn by your deceased wife was a 'Family' ring like from your Mom or Grandmother or something then DON'T be a DumbA*s! , just put the old ring away or take it to a jeweler & work out a deal for something else...

    Not wrong. I am sure she wants you to be happy. But if you can afford then get another one. You can always sell your deceased wife’s ring to the jewelers and get a different one.

    Unless she's okay with it, yes very much so wrong and inappropriate.

    Myself, I'd rather have no ring than have a ring that was intended for someone else and was bought with them specifically in mind and was their story. That includes ex-partners, deceased partners, grandma's, mom's etc.

    I'm hot high maintenance, I just want something that was for me.

    I personally wouldn’t find it inappropriate. I think it’s a way of healing and I personally would find it even more intimate as it had more sentimental value to you and you were still entrusting it to me. Now, if it had belonged to an ex-wife that would be different but since it is from a lost loved one it’s all up to you. I think if she’s uncomfortable with it maybe look into getting a different ring but I would take it as a sign that you have truly moved on and are looking forward to a life with me. Dont listen to the others, or even me if you disagree. I would go with your gut. If you want to give it to her, do it. It’s only a physical object.

      you kind of contradicted yourself here if it has sentimental value to him which im sure it does then it's not just a physical object.
