How did the 4th finger become associated with love, commitment & marriage?

Post  Martijn (admin) on Thu May 05, 2011 3:40 pm



The ring finger has been associated with the wearing of rings in married men and women since the Roman times. This tradition appears to origin in the early belief that a nerve, vein or artery runs directly from the 4th digit to the heart, and therefore it became judged to be the seat of the emotions.

However, medical science today does not present any anatomical evidence that confirms this early belief. Nevertheless, there are other explanations why the ring finger became associated with marriage - including some new ideas that are confirmed by various studies!

haha - I must be deficient in vitamins or something because I found it very hard to stick just my ring finger up like the couple have done in the photo ! lol!
Is it just me or is it hard to do?
