my boyfriend still wears his wedding ring

He is a widower. His wife died two years ago and we have been dating 5 months. He still wears his wedding ring, has her picture in his wallet, car, and by his bed and has her ashes in his bedroom.
He says he's ready to move on but I think the ring is a big sign he isn't. The one time we had sex it was at his house and with her picture staring at us I felt so disrespectful.
I may call it off but check up on him in a few months

Oh wow. Thats a tough one. It doesn't sound like he's ready yet either. Good luck in whatever you decide to do.

oh thats tough. I think he will always love his wife but it doesnt mean that he cant love you. I think you should talk to him about it. Maybe he could move her pictures? I dont know that I would be bothered by the ring. I can see both sides of this really. Not sure what to say.

Yup def not ready.

But my husband has pic of his first wife in our home and he is a widower as well. Even if you continue to date him he will always love her. Nothing will change that. And chances he will always keep her pictures. That is something you will have to come to terms with if you do decide one day you wanting to go back. And the ring would not bother me.

It doesn't sound like he's ready to move on yet. I would sit down and explain your feelings about it.
