Special Trivia: The Wedding Ring & Ring Finger Connection

Dear Online Diary,

According to ancient Chinese excerpt, our fingers represent certain people in our lives:

The THUMB represents our parents.
The INDEX (second) finger represents our siblings.
The MIDDLE (third) finger represents ourselves.
The RING (fourth) finger represents our life partner; and
The PINKIE (fifth) finger represents our (future) children.

Now, do you want to know why wedding ring should be worn on the fourth finger, thus, calling it the Ring finger? Let’s discover the answer by simply following the activity below. This should be fun and interesting.

Starting Position:
Open your palms (face to face), bend the middle fingers and hold them together – back to back. Once achieved, open and hold the remaining fingers – tip to tip, as shown on the image below:

{The correct position of the fingers as shown by H2B}

Try to separate your Thumbs (representing our parents). Can we separate the fingers?

Yes. This symbolizes that our parents will somehow leave us, one way or another, because they are not destined to stay with us forever.

Join the Thumbs just like on the starting position and separate your Index fingers (representing our siblings). Can we separate the fingers?

Yes, we can separate the fingers because our brothers and sisters will build their own families and will have to lead their own separate lives.

Join the Index fingers and separate your Pinkies (representing our future children). Can we separate the fingers?

Yes, they can be separated, too. It’s because our future children will get married, leave us and settle down someday.

Final Trial:
Join your little fingers, and try to separate your Ring fingers (representing your spouse). Can you do it? Can you separate the fingers?

It maybe a little surprising but we just CANNOT separate the two fingers. It’s because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick or thin, for better or for worst, in good times and bad.

-- o0o --
It's fun, isn't it? In addition, let this be a reminder (specially to those who are a little lost) that our friends can bring us happiness today. It's true, but what about tomorrow, or the next day, or when we were seasoned and old? Can our friends and acquaintances stay with us?

Well, not everyone. Let’s not forget that in the end, only our spouse can stick with us, just because REAL, BLESSED LOVE will stick together, forever and ever.

I can only hope that everyone will realize this very important lesson before it can be too late. Seriously.

May God touch your heart, your mind and your life not only today but forever and ever . Amen. =)
