  • I have always believed that wedding rings were put on the ring finger due to the dated belief that there is a vein that runs from that finger to the heart

  • 1. With this ring I thee wed.
  • 2. Why is the ring finger so sacred in marriage? ? Ever wondered?
  • 3. Let’s put our hands together …
    • Bend the middle fingers.
    • All tips of the fingers should be touching that on the other hand.
    Have you got it as shown here ?
  • 4. Let’s play a game. Simon said, move apart your… … thumbs … index fingers … little fingers Can you do that?
  • 5. You are not the only one. We could all move apart our… … thumbs. … index fingers. … little fingers.
  • 6. But what about the ring fingers ? Can you move them apart ?
  • 7. Till death do us part. That is how a marriage should be. The ring fingers represent a couple in a marriage. The thumbs represent parents who they will leave one day. The index fingers represent their siblings. They too will move to start their own family. How about the little fingers ?
  • 8. Just as you do. The little fingers in your life will leave you one day.
  • 9. It will start with... … a ring on that finger.
  • 10.
    • The email I received:
    • Why wedding ring should put on the fourth finger ?? Pls follow the below step, really god make this a miracle( this is from a Chinese excerpt)   Firstly, show your palm, centre finger bend and put together back to back Secondly, the rest 4 fingers tips to tips Games begin, follow the below arrangement, 5 finger but only 1 pair can split      Try to open your thumb, the thumb represent parents, it can be open cause all human does go thru sick and dead.  Which is our parents will leave us one day Pls close up your thumb, then open your second finger, the finger represent brothers and sisters, they do have their own family which is too they will leave us too Now close up your second finger, open up your little finer, this represent your children.  Sooner or later they too will leave us for they got they own living to live Nevertheless, close up your little finer, try to open your fourth finger which we put our wedding ring, you will be surprise to find that it cannot be open at all.  Because it represent husband and wife, this whole life you will be attach to each other   Real love will stick together ever and forever   Thumb represent parents Second finger represent brothers & sisters Centre finger represent own self Fourth finger represent your partner Last finger represent your children
