I just Googled it...wearing it on the right hand normally means that your spouse has passed away (widower).

"Back in the day"... A wedding ring on the right hand, for either sex, meant "divorced and looking". However that could have changed over the past 20 years.

If he is right handed, maybe he likes the feel of the ring when spanking the monkey? If he is left handed, maybe he doesn't like the feel of the ring when spaking the monkey?

I would buy that one except that my little Jewish friend that I work with is the one that asked me what it meant.

The spouse passed away thing might make sense but he's very young. Hrm...

I think I've heard both the 'divorced' and the 'spouse is deceased' explanations before. I really can't see a divorced man, in this day and age, wearing a wedding band at all since women people would still be turned away by it before he even got a chance to know them.

Why not just ask him?

I've always known it to mean being a widower. Back in the 70s, my dad wore his that way when my mother passed, as did my grandmother (mom's side) after my grandfather passed away.

Wearing the wedding ring on the right hand was quite common in Eastern Europe when I was there a few years back. The young lady that I had for an intreputer told me that the cusom was changing since the young people felt that that left hand was closer to the heart. I think that it is still very common in Europe. Is the guy in question from the US?

I hardly know him - just in passing, really.

I always thought divorced people just stopped wearing the ring all together.

I don't know about the Jewish thing Rob. It looks like that quote is really only referring to the woman, not the man.
