Should I sell my wedding ring?

I've been divorced for 3 yrs. I could really really use the money, been a rough year and we are scraping by this month. My wedding ring has no sentimental value to me, except for maybe keeping it for my son. I get no support from Ex. Should I sell it? Or is that some kind of taboo.

  • I would sell it. It would have sentimental value if, say, you were widowed instead of divorced. I don't think it's taboo or anything, it's not like you're currently married and wanting to hock it to buy drugs. You're divorced and wanting to sell it because you get no support for your child and you need money, presumably in part to provide support for your son.

    I say, sell it...

  • I think if you need money, sell it.

  • My parents kept theirs. I have my dad's ring and can wear it on my thumb. It has sentimental value to me. It may be the same for your son years from now. It's hard to say!

  • I think it would mean more to your son if you were still married. It didn't work so why hang on to it? If you need the money for whatever reason there is nothing wrong with selling it.

  • sell sell sell!! My ex while still married stole mine and pawned it for his "toys". If I still had it when I was divorced, it sure as hell would have sold it. I kept nothing that was from him or we shared. I sold in garage sales everything!!!!!

  • When my first husband and I split, I sold my ring. I was going to chuck it into the ocean, then thought "he blew our savings on sluts...." so I pawned it instead and took this really good-looking guy I had just met to a fabulous dinner! It worked out great, I am still married to that "good-looking" guy twenty years later!
