where do you place your wedding ring? in your right hand or your left hand? It has been said that Americans place their wedding rings in their left hand. while the British people place their wedding rings in their right hand. Is this true? I place my wedding ring in my right hand. and it is in my middle finger not in my ring finger since my ring is so loose in my ring finger and it fits well in my middle finger. so where do you place your wedding ring? In your left hand or right hand? in your middle finger? or ring finger?

I am married but i don't have a wedding ring... my husband and i don't have the budget for that yet... but then again... i am not really fond of wearing jewelry... i have some but i don't wear them...maybe that is why i doesn't bother me if i don't have a wedding ring...

Hi Rouwel. I haven't marry, haha but I hear my sisters said that guy will be wearing in their left hand while girl will be wearing it in their right hand. And, for we Chinese, it should wear in the fourth finger. Third one if I am not mistake is meaning that a person has enganged.

Mine is in my left ring finger too. you're right, we (Filipinos) wear it in the right ring finger but here in the US it's in the left. my husband wants it in my left finger. He was amazed at first why I transferred my engagement ring to my right ring-finger and that's the time he told me it should be in the left.

My wedding ring is on my left hand. It is on my ring finger. My niece was born without fingers on her left hand so she wears her wedding ring on her right hand ring finger.

I place my wedding ring on my right hand on my finger ring. It is so tight already that I can no longer take it off. Which only means i already gain weight since I got married six years ago. lol But I and my husband are not really taking off our rings.

In my country , boys often place their rings in the left hand and girls' in their right hands.If you place it in your middle finger ,that means you are falling in love .If it 's in your forefinger, that means you are singer and looking for a new partner.

We Pakistani use our right hand for every sacred activity. We eat, drink, also use our right hand when we shake hand with some one. Wedding ring is a symbol or token of love. Thus we prefer to wear it in ring finger of our right hand.

I wear my wedding and engagement rings on my left ring finger. On my right hand, however, I wear my husband's wedding ring on my middle finger. He almost tore his finger off at work one day by getting his ring caught, so I wear it for him now as he will no longer wear it.
