Why wedding rings are worn in the fourth finger?
Talking about engagement rings have you ever wondered why a husband or a wife always wears their wedding band or engagement ring on one particular finger and why not the other ones?
In most religions and cultures, the fourth finger of your left hand is considered the ring finger. Engagement or wedding ceremonies in some religions consist of both the bride and groom exchanging rings to confirm the engagement/ wedding.
People in almost every religion have a firm belief that the fourth finger of the left hand is the ideal finger for both the bride and groom. Why? Well, it is because they believe that there is a vein that connects directly from the finger to the heart. When the bride and groom wear the rings on the designated finger, the rings connect them by heart. This helps them create a bond that is near to their heart, which lasts long and their love becomes stronger. Sometimes, the hand varies from culture to culture but the finger stays the same. Wearing a ring on this specific finger symbolizes that you are committed and are planning to get married soon. It doesn't necessarily have to be an engagement ring, you can exchange the rings on your wedding too, to seal the rituals and wedding completely.
