why is the wedding ring worn on the fourth finger? There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese..... 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!!

Why the wedding ring is worn on the fourth finger: The Chinese give a beautiful explanation to this.    The thumb represents your parents.  The index finger represents your siblings.  The middle finger represents yourself.  The ring finger represents your life partner.  The little finger/pinky represents your children.  Hold your hands together like the picture. Join your middle fingers back-to-back, and the remaining fingers tip-to-tip.    Now, try to separate your thumbs. They will separate because your parents are not destined to live with you forever. Rejoin your thumbs and separate your index fingers. They will separate because your siblings will have their own families and lead their own lives. Rejoin your index fingers and separate your little fingers/pinkies. They will separate because your children will grow up, get married, and settle down. Rejoin your little fingers/pinkies and try to separate your ring finger. They will not be able to separate because your life partner is meant to be with you throughout your entire life, through thick and thin.

this is great. Minnesotan's only know one way to put up the middle finger, and good for us they don't know which one it is so they put up all five in a mitten. hehe {Minnesota Middle Finger}

Why your wedding ring goes on the 4th finger. Cute for the back of the program. Make sure to tell your photographer. I bet they'll catch a few guests trying it before the ceremony. So cool.... And weird! Gave me chills! :)
