Wedding Ring - Stupid But Very Interesting

This is very interesting! Why should the wedding ring be worn on the  fourth finger? 
 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  & the 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 figurebelow): 
Now, try to separate your thumbs (representing the parents)..., they will open, because your parents are not destined to live with you lifelong, 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 CANNOT....., because Husband & Wife have to remain together all their lives - through thick and thin!!
