Today's Annoying Wedding Fact

According to tradition in some countries (derived from Roman belief), the wedding ring is worn on the left ring finger because the vein in the left ring finger, referred to as the vena amoris, was believed to be directly connected to the heart, a symbol of love.

I just always wondered why the left hand

It could also be that in a lot of western lore the left side was connected to the emotional. This was later legitimized by modern science as the right hemisphere of the brain, which controls the left side of the body, also deals with the intuitive and emotional.

This is also why a LOT of artists are left-handed.

So, the left hand really is the lovey hand.
