The wedding ring is a symbol of unity and togetherness and for some, it is very hard to separate with that little band of gold. It can just as difficult to slide that ring off the finger as it is to be away from the partner after having spent so many years together.
People value possessions, they are like treasure-chests of memories related to special occasions and special emotions. The wedding ring is more than just a ring, it transcends its material being. For example some people lose their wedding ring and will do anything, will go to any lengths to find them like diving through dumpsters.
For some people, the thought of ever removing a wedding ring never crosses their mind. But a wife and grandmother from West Virginia had to remove hers for the first time in 48 because of a stay in hospital recently. There was clearly a heavy emotional attachment to the ring for the woman, and being forced to removed it had caused her some distress.

Sliding the ring back onto the finger of his wife, he proposed again to her, sending all the family members in the room into tears. After 48 years together, there was nothing about to split these two up!
