Should I continue to wear my wedding ring after my divorce?

My wife recently divorced me, so my question is what is the standard thought regarding one’s wedding ring, do you continue to wear it?

Dear friend,

I suggest that you continue to wear it since in God’s eyes, you are still married and are not free to date. If it is possible to have the marriage annulled, once it has been declared null, you would be truly single. You are in our prayers.
