    OK... i have a question. Why do some married men wear their ring on their right hand on the 4th finger? I dont get it. I thought they were supposed to wear it on the left. duh.

    please explain this to me

    No idea never seen anyone do this. Can't wait to hear if there is a reason.

    i guess its supposed to mean "im involved with someone" but its wedding ring

    so maybe "im married but fighting"???

    I've noticed that some European men tend to wear theirs on their right hand. As to why [​IMG]

    heres some scary other reponses i found..

    "There are some men that do this for many reasons:
    1 getting a divorce
    2 because he's a liar and a cheater
    3 not married anymore
    4 just to wear a ring
    5 maybe from another country as well
    The best to know if a man is married look for the tan-line on the finger that's a big give away..."

    and


    "I would guess that it makes the wife happier thinking at least he wears it and it gives him the option to appear single to other women."

    and

    "Sounds lke he pulled off his ring and put it on that hand so he did not appear married. Watch out for those low-lifes!!"

    When I married my German husband in Germany 35 years ago it was common there to wear the "wedding" band on the left 4th finger when engaged, switching it over to the right hand when you got married. I think diamond engagement rings have become more popular since then, but the wedding ring is, I think, still worn on the right. I am talking only of Germany here; I can't say how it is in other European countries. My wedding ring is on my right hand - after so many years I couldn't change it if I wanted ... it won't come off [​IMG]. DH's was also on the right, but he removed it before it got too tight.

    In the Greek Orthodox church, engaged couples wear their rings on their left hands and married couples wear their rings on their right hands.
