Research about Divorce Regrets
Hilary Stichbury is a freelance writer who researched an article for Canvas Magazine on people who divorce and then go on to regret their decision. According to Hilary:
"I hope this story will be helpful to that (undoubtedly small) group of women who still love their husbands but don’t see a way forward, and can maybe look for other support rather than ending the marriage. The story will include a side bar on ways to keep a marriage healthy."
During her research, she reached out to readers at WomansDivorce.com for input on her story. Now you can read the results of her research on the phenomenon of divorce regret.

Worthy Review - If you've made the decision to move on and sell your wedding ring, you can either sell it locally or online. Local options often include pawn shops and some local jewelers.
