Superstitions

 

 

1. Why is the wedding ring put on the left-hand annular finger?

 

 

Because it is believed that the fourth finger of the left hand has a vena amoris, that is, a love vein running directly to the heart, and that the nuptial sign - being a symbol of union, of love and of faithfulness - is thus joined to the seat of life.

Therefore, this custom is based on a superstition, so believers have one more reason to reject it.
