Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger?

Posted by Sharath Chandra

 There is a beautiful and convincing explanation given by the Chinese. 
  
  


Thumb represents your --                                       Parents 
Second
 (Index) finger represents your                     Siblings 
Middle
 finger represents your                                 Self 
Fourth
 (Ring) finger represents your                       Life Partner
Last (Little) finger represents your                       Children

Firstly
, open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together -  back to back 
Secondly
, open and hold the remaining three fingers and the thumb - tip to tip
(As shown in the figure Above) 


Now, try to Separate your Thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong (Sorry but its the Truth), 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 own separate lives.   


Now join 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,
 join your Little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse).
You will be surprised to see that you just 
CAN NOT ..,
  

Coz Husband &Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin.. !!  


ISN'T THIS  LOVELY .. ??
