The Ring Finger

30 03 2011

Today we live in world where the number of divorces and number of past wives or husbands are increasing. I am saddened to hear that people have lost love and decided to separate. I feel today’s society has forgotten the meaning of a relationship and, more importantly, marriage.

I saw this Chinese saying about why, when married, we wear a wedding on the right on the ring finger.

  1. The thumb represents your parents. Now try separating them apart, and they’ll easily open. They easily separate because you are not destined to live with your parents forever. Now join the two thumbs back together.
  2. Next, separate your index fingers and they will open too because these fingers represent your siblings, and they’ll also lead their own lives in the future.
  3. The middle fingers represent yourself.
  4. Next separate your pinky(little) fingers. These fingers with open as well because, they represent your kids, who will also have a different life from yours, eventually.
  5. Lastly, try opening your ring fingers. You can’t right, this is because the ring finger represents both you & your spouse & no matter what you’ll remain together for the rest of your life.

Search for someone who you can plan the rest of your life with. That’s why we say “Till death do us part” and not “I’ll love you till I get bored.” Love, especially in marriage, is sacred. The wedding band we will end up wearing is more than showing you are taken but to express your love and commitment to your significant other.

Love this post! So very true! So much of my own friends have more than one kid and theyre not together with their spouse. Im glad i found a man who believes in the ‘old fashion’ way of marriage 🙂 i believe ‘divorce is not an option’ 🙂
