 Wedding ring finger placement explanation

 

Good evening everyone. I came across this article and thought it was pretty cool and well worth sharing. I had never heard this before but I think it is wonderful.

I tried the experiment and couldn't do it with the ring finger either. Try it for yourself. Hope you enjoy the article as much as I did.

My mom always told me what the Roman's say... it's the finger that sends the blood straight to your heart therefore the "closest" to your heart.  I'm going with that.

Peggy-I thought it was as well

Randy-Neither will I

Alexandra-You are most welcome.

Tammy-I liked that one as well. They are both good I thought. I think I had heard the Roman one at one time.

I think I had read this before and it is interesting. Once again I tried to do the finger thing still can't do it.

Now the Chinese moving the hands around for the life partner finger story I had never heard before. That vein going to the heart one I have heard a lot and almost everyone says that Roman one is a myth. Cool things you find all the time Sharon.

Well the explanation of this is really very interesting. As why do we wear a wedding ring or our Engagement Ring on forth finger, the reason behind this is people says the nervous of forth finger goes directly to your heart so that makes your relation strong and everlasting.

Gertrude-Tammy also said that so it may be true. Some people may believe one or the other.  Thank you for reading and commenting. Have a great week.
