Since ancient times, marriages have been symbolized by the wearing of rings. Conventionally, the woman’s ring is presented as a betrothal gift by a man while he proposes marriage or directly after she accepts his marriage proposal. It represents their love and a commitment to future marriage. If you really think about it, why wouldn’t the man wear an engagement ring also? Yet, I bet if you ask 10 random men, most of them would say they would never wear an engagement ring. Most of their reasoning would probably be based on the idea that it is a tradition for the woman, not the man.
