A Final Goodbye

Once the divorce is final, your wedding ring will probably end up in the bottom of a jewelry box or drawer. It actually may end up at the bottom of a lake, if you’re still angry. You could dispose of it without thought, or you could rid yourself of it in a more cathartic manner.

As divorce becomes more common, people are finding unusual ways to deal with the end of a marriage. Divorce parties are popular, as are vacations and makeovers. But keeping that ring on your finger won’t help you move on—so how about putting it in the ground? Wedding ring coffins are the newest product aimed at those going through a split. These tiny replicas of full-sized coffins have just enough room for your ring, and perhaps another small memento of the relationship.

Rituals are an important part of the healing process, and burying your wedding ring—whether alone or as part of a larger celebration—could provide much needed closure after the papers have been signed. [Atlanta Journal Constitution]
