got this in an email try it its fun to see how it really works! EVER WONDERED WHY WEDDING RINGS SHOULD BE ON YOUR FOURTH FINGER AND NOWHERE ELSE? READ AND TRY THIS, YOU WON'T BELIEVE IT Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger? There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese..... The thumb represents your Parents. The second (index) finger represents your Siblings. The middle finger represents you. The fourth (ring) finger represents your Life Partner. The last (little) finger represents your children. First, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together, back to back. Second, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip. (As shown in the figure below): SOrry the pic didnt come thru. 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 separate lives. Now rejoin 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, rejoin your little fingers, and try to separate your ring fingers (representing your spouse). You'll be surprised to see that you just CANNOT, because husband & wife are meant remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!! So clever, those Chinese!!

Wow, i just tried that and it really works! What a lovely story, i think there is some truth in it. I'm getting married on 8th Nov this year after having spent 8 years with my husband-to-be already (through thick & thin!). There's jsut one question i must still ask, why do we wear the ring on our left hand and not on our right...

Thank you for sharing that, Lakota. I had fun trying to do as instructed. And it sure was impossible to separate those fingers. And yes, through thick and thin, for better or for worse, husband and wife should try to do their best to get pass through all of the challenges in their lives. Hmmm.... I guess, I'm stuck with my husband!

Wow that is absolutely amazing sweetheart! It is quite spooky as I was discussing with my eldest a little while ago that we wear the wedding ring on that hand as it represent the route to the heart - I am going to call him from the other room right now and get him to try this one! xxx

And here I always thought it had something to do with the heart. I like this reasoning much much better.

well I think the heart does have a play in it to but this seems simpler huh?
