Hi mom's

I have a question I need advice on..I asked several friends and everyone has a different answer...so a friend got recenlty engaged nice ring, she was engaged a few years back ( that guy died) but she always wore his engagement ring...now she has a new ring and wears that on her right hand.., I think she should put the old engagement ring away and wear the new one, the new fiancee has not expressed his opinion yet   what do you think??  thanks 

OK once again I will stress thanks for your comments and also just to give you a better idea, true its not my decision of what to do, true its not me,but this is a 'old time friend/like a sister I have her back etc...the prior fiance died...she was a mess,which was understandable, but although engaged she cheated on him as he neared death,now she just got newly engaged to a great guy...I myself think she cant let go of her past and feels quilty due to her cheating.. while she being my friend I think by her not wearing the current ring on the left hand she is still in the past memory how will she move on and be happy ?? I am concerned for her thats all thanks for your reply's...

I agree that the old ring should be put away. It's tragic that she lost her 1st fiancé but it's time to really move on.

She definitely shouldn't be wearing the old one in my opinion. It would seem to me as she hasn't let go. And the new should most definitely be a left hand ring if its a true engagement ring. Wouldn't fly with my man.

 I think that's a discussion for your friend and her DF to have.

I think the old ring should  be put away as well - I married a widower and his ring is put away.

Or have the old ring made into a necklace.  Or sized larger and made a thumb ring or something?

Why is it any of your business? Why do you (or any of the pps above) have opinions on the matter?
