    Why should the wedding ring be worn on the fourth finger?

    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 figure below):

    Click the image to open in full size.

    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!!

          that's sweet! I heard that the wedding is worn on the 4th finger because it was once believed to be closer to the heart.

          It was once believed that a vein of blood ran directly from the third finger on the left hand to the heart. The vein was called vena amoris, or the vein of love, and early writings on matrimonial procedure suggested that it would be
          appropriated for one's wedding ring to be worn on that special finger.
