Re: need some female insight, my wife stopped wearing her ring
I can only imagine how hurtful it must be that she has taken her ring off, but if she is feeling hurt ir betrayed by you and from what it sounds needs her space, then taking the ring off could just be a symbol of that space she needs. I know that sometimes when my husband and I are fighting or even more so lately when things have gotten really bad, that my rings make me feel a little claustrophobic. Have you ever thought that maybe she took them off to have a shower or wash her hair and completely forgot to put them back on and now that she has moved out she cant? Or that she is actually doing it to hurt you a little because she feels that you hurt her.
I dont believe in the games, but sometimes its a reality check...
Dont be so hard on yourself either...you seem like a great guy that really loves your wife. You are entitled to feel off sometimes and cannot always be expected to bring your A game - and she also needs to support you through that. Im guessing that something happened in her life that she really needed you for and by not being there you have hurt her, but you need to know that you did the best you could at the time. That might not have been what was enough for her or what you would normally have been capable of but sometimes thats ok.
Spend some time on yourself, understanding why you felt like you did for the last 12 months, before you start trying to prove anything to her. Its only after you have done that, that you will be able to show her your love and feelings for her, and actually be able to act on them.
