WEDnesday Love: "Beautiful Wedding Bands"

I've noticed that a lot of men AND women don't wear their wedding rings?  What's up with that?  A wedding ring or wedding band is not just a piece of metal, it indicates the wearer is married.

Depending on the local culture, the ring is worn on the base of the right or the left ring finger. The custom of wearing a ring has spread widely beyond its origin in Europe.  Did you know that in the United States, wedding rings were originally worn only by wives, but during the 20th century they became customary in that country for both husbands and wives?  Foolery right?  I agree.. LOL

Historically, the wedding ring was connected to the exchange of valuables at the moment of the wedding rather than a symbol of eternal love and devotion. It is a relic of the times when marriage was a contract between families, not individual lovers.

After marriage, the ring is worn on the hand it had been placed on during the ceremony. By wearing rings on the fourth finger, a married couple symbolically declares their eternal love for each other.

What are your thoughts about wearing a wedding ring and/or band?
