    Is it normal or strange that my girlfriend wears a ring that her ex got her?

    It is not strange at all, I guess she still has feelings for her ex-boyfriend, why don't you buy her a ring to replace the old one?

    I guess it depends on why she's wearing it. If she likes the ring then it shouldn't be too weird. Like suggested above, maybe you could get a similar one so she can replace it.

    I don't think it's that strange, but if it bothers you or makes you uncomfortable, you could just inquire as to why she still wears it? You could just put a ring on it ;)

    Yeah I’ll speak to her, it’s her choice if she wears it but it’s not like a pair of trainers or some heels it’s jewellery and to me it sentimental. I’ve got a tattoo that matches my ex and it’s clear it annoys her but I’ve said I’ll sort it.

    Hmm. Not strange but it would definitely bother me. My girlfriend had things from her ex-boyfriend. It made me feel uncomfortable. I told her about it. She got rid of it.

    I mean it’s kinda weird and if it makes you feel weird then it’s definitely weird. I could understand if said girlfriends ex passed away or something. That is a logical reason to wear something from an x. But, otherwise I pretty much Think it is weird. Maybe you should get her another one to represent you :)

    Communication. Express your feelings towards the ring, with, or without, a new one. Although I'm sure many would argue, moderate jealousy is healthy and a normal defensive instinct.

    If she wears it to remember him by, yes. If she simply wears it because she likes it then no harm.

    I personally wouldn't wear anything from an ex though but that is just me.

    "I’ve got a tattoo that matches my ex"

    This could be why she's wearing the ring, to relate how she feels whenever she sees the tattoo.
