AnswerWhile some men can be real jerks and deserve to be divorced this does not include ALL men. It's a myth that it's always the man's fault for a divorce and women can be as much of a problem and sometimes cheat just as much as some men do. Men have feelings too and perhaps some men prefer to wear their wedding ring because they aren't ready to get back in the dating circuit yet because they are upset and need to find out where their life is going.

Or, the ex -spouse was abusive and controlling during the marriage and continuing to wear the ring is a sign of power and continued ( perceived) control.

It can also be a manipulative tool to present an image to others. If the person has a history of being manipulative then there's probably a payoff to him in some way , either socially, or psychologically. It is a statement to others: "see, she is the problem, not me". And it's a statement to his ex-wife : " see , you are still attached to me". It's a subtle form of harrassment.

If men are going through a separation or divorce why do they still refer to their exes as their wives?

A Separation is not a divorce and you are still legally married. "Getting" a divorce, you are still married until the law tells you otherwise and papers are signed. I usually hear "ex wife" or "ex husband" and that just means the couple don't live together and could mean they are just separated or are getting a divorce. Some men may refer to their ex wife as "wife" out of habit.

Reasons to Hire Divorce Attorneys?

Going through a divorce is one of the most emotionally stressful things that a person could ever go through. While the emotional pain and frustration is significant, the amount of legal issues that a couple has to go through can be just a frustrating. Due to the significant amount of legal issues that have to be dealt with, which could range from potential alimony, child support, or separation of assets, it is very important that a person hires a divorce attorney when going through a divorce. The first way that a divorce attorney could help someone going through the divorce process is that the attorney could help consult a person on what to expect during the divorce process. The attorney will sit with a person and explain everything that will be discussed in the divorce process. This will include reasons for separation, how assets will be split, whether or not someone will have to pay alimony or child support, and how custody of any children will take place. The second way that a divorce attorney could help someone going through the divorce process is that the attorney will help defend their client during any negotiation or legal proceedings. When going through a divorce, both parties will request what they believe they are entitled too. Since divorces are typically an emotional event, it could lead to some unfair requests. To ensure that their client receives what they are owed through the divorce, the attorney will negotiate the other party's attorney and defend them in court. The third way that a divorce attorney could help someone going through the divorce process is that the attorney could appeal any judgment made. In most situations, it would be best for all cases to be handled out of court. However, there are several situations when the divorce will need to go through a more formal legal proceeding. If you had to go through a more formal legal proceeding, and did not receive a favorable ruling, the attorney could help you out by appealing the decision. This could include negotiating down how much alimony needs to be spent or increasing the amount of visitation that you will receive.
