Why We Wear Wedding Rings On Our 4th Finger

Jan 6, 2016

There are all kinds of weird traditions surrounding marriage. Many couples decide to include the time-honored practices like engagement rings, a white dress, the father-daughter dance and a honeymoon. These usually go off without a hitch, but occasionally one of these romantic moments will go shockingly wrong.

One tradition that's tough to mess up, however, is the rings. Since they form an infinite circle, rings are meant to symbolize the never-ending love that the bride and groom have for each other. Have you ever wondered why wedding rings are worn on the 4th finger, though? Some believe that this practice comes from an ancient Chinese tradition which considers marriage to be an important bond that should never be broken. Don’t believe us? Watch what happens when this woman puts her hands together and tries to separate her ring fingers. This might not be the only reason why we wear wedding rings on our 4th finger, but it's certainly the most poetic.
