The Egyptians were the first recorded civilization to use the wedding ring. In Egyptian hieroglyphics a circle represented eternity. Once a woman accepted the ring she became the ”property” of the person who gave it to her and she was in a sense ”his.” The first wedding ring could have been made of braided grass or hay (which would have been changed often), ivory, bone, or leather. Eventually, metal was used, but the first wedding bands were crude and lumpy. However, the sentiment remained the same-eternal commitment and love.
”A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person,” said American author Mignon McLaughlin. Although there are pessimists when it comes to the topic of love and marriage, millions of people all over the world make that giant leap to spending and sharing the rest of their lives with one person. Getting married is one of the happiest times in a person’s life. Finding your true love, getting married and wearing a ring to signify your commitment to the other person is a romantic idea and one that has been kept a tradition for decades, even in our neoteric, cynical society.
Other takeaways from the study: a majority of grooms (77 percent) are still proposing on a bended knee, 71 percent seek to attain permission from the lady’s parents, a little more than half (57 percent) of grooms proposed privately – this fact shows a growing number of public proposals – and a growing number of grooms (five percent) are now wearing ”man-gagement rings.” For some, it might seem to be a waste to purchase an expensive wedding ring, but for others they see it quite differently: a symbol of how important that person means to them. Remember, wearing a ring on the fourth finger of your left hand originated from the Romans, who believed the vein from that finger ran to their heart.
