Dating and marriage practices in greece Chatsexin
Usually the couple buys a pair of rings, each one to be worn on the ring finger of the right hand.These rings may be worn again after marriage too, or substituted by wedding bands.In some countries, such as in the United Kingdom, it is a new trend to melt the old marriage bands and create brand new rings.In Brazil it is not a spread habit, though; divorced people simply just stop wearing their wedding bands.Since it is a quite new and very well accepted habit between Brazilians, it has been trivialized, specially young Brazilian couples.For being such a new habit among couples, there are no “rules” about when this type of ring should be given.The first bride to wear an engagement ring as a sign of love and lasting union was Mary of Burgundy, who was gifted a diamond ring by her husband, the Archduke Maximilian of Austria, in 1477. From couples dating to weddings, there is a complex – and sometimes confusing – etiquette when it comes to what kind of ring to wear, what it will be made of and in what finger you should wear it on.
In this article we will explain a bit more about the Brazilian habits in this subject.
Sometimes, like mentioned above, the wedding bands are the engagement rings, just worn in the ring finger of the left hand instead of the right hand.
However, sometimes a new pair of rings is bought especially to the marriage, and then the engagement rings can be worn with the official marriage rings on the very same finger.
The only difference is that, in the case of Brazil, they are worn on the ring finger of the left hand.
Sometimes, only the bride-to-be receives an engagement ring, which can be a diamond ring, the symbol of everlasting love, like in the tradition in the U. However, this situation is not very common in Brazil – and not very safe either.
