Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger?

Recently i came across a very nice article giving the explanation about Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger? Presenting the article for you all to read here…

There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese Legend…

Thumb represents your Parents, Second (Index) finger represents your Siblings Middle finger represents your-Self Fourth (Ring) finger represents your Life Partner & the Last (Little) finger represents your children

Firstly, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together-back to back Secondly, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb – tip to tip

Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)…, they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, 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 and 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…. because Husband & Wife have! to remain together all their lives – through thick and thin!!
Please try this out………….. ISN’T THIS A LOVELY THEORY?

  1. I say a corollary to this theory would be that, the remaining majority 15 fingers represent your friends…without whom one wil be a handicap 🙂

  2. Not impressed. Husband & wives when they have childrens they become "Parents". According to this theory, husband and wives are destined to stay with childrens forever, but parents are not destined to stay with childrens forever ? Contracdiction correct ! Besides, As per this theory parents should leave childrens, siblings should leave siblings. Wife is dependent on Husband & Husband is not dependent on wife correct ? Well, the theory may seem convincing, but does not convince me. I do not wear any wedding ring, and if the theory is strong enough then everyone should be wearing a ring in the middle finger for himself / herself, why only for life partners ?
