Why Wedding Ring is Worn Over 4th Finger

There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese.

Middle Fingers to bend inwards & press together

It is customary for a wedding ring to be worn on the fourth finger of the left hand because there is a vein known as “vena amoris” (vein of love)that runs straight from it to the heart. This direct blood-flow to the heart made the fourth finger the perfect candidate for a wedding ring, as it represents the union of love. It’s an ancient belief which tradition reportedly dates back to 3rd century BC Greece.

Thumb represents your . . . Parents

Second (Index) finger represents your . . . Siblings

Middle finger represents your . . . Self

Fourth (Ring) finger represents your . . . Life Partner &

Last (Little) finger represents your . . . Children

Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers & hold them together – back to back.

Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb – tip to tip
 (As shown in the picture above)

Now, try to separate your Thumbs (representing the parents) . . . they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you forever (Sorry but its the Truth), and have to leave you sooner or later.

Please join your thumbs as before and separate your Index fingers (representing siblings) . . . they will also open, because your brothers & sisters will have their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.

Now join the Index fingers and separate your Little fingers (representing your children) . . . they will open too, because the children also will get married and settle down on their own some day.

Finally, join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse).
You will be surprised to see that you just CANNOT . . . Coz Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives – through thick and thin..!!



May you enjoy your marital bliss!
