D'oh! Well, perhaps we can think of something else to do for him.

Doesn't anyone else think this is nuts? I mean if I were his wife I'd much rather he kept as many of his body parts as possible over a piece of replaceable metal, wedding ring or not. Isn't it about their life together more than the symbol of it?

Maybe cutting off his finger was a way for him to get out of returning to Iraq. Even if his motivation was to make his wife happy, this might have subconsciously affected his decision.
