Here's why we wear our wedding ring on the left hand

There is something romantic and joyous about that moment the person you've pledged to spend the rest of life with puts a ring on your left ring finger on your left hand.  

Gazing and staring at all of the sparkles everyday for the rest of your married life, has it ever occurred to you why the ring is always placed on that finger? 

Two theories exist that in the 16th century before more of the human anatomy was known, it was believed a vein ran between the fourth finger on the left hand and the heart and the second, a Chinese belief that marriage is the strongest bond and the most important bond of all. 

Take a look at the video below and test the strength of the ring fingers of both hands and decide for yourself.
