Yes, the ring is on the right hand which for us is in the wrong hand. In Egypt, the engagement ring is worn on the right hand then on the wedding day is switched to the left hand. Actually the ring we have here is not classed as an engagement ring in Egypt but as a 'special gift'. The engagement ring is the wedding ring so we will both wear what will be our wedding rings on the right hand until our wedding day when we will then have them placed on the left. We bought the rings two days ago and these will be given on our formal party which takes place on Saturday. At this point we are classes as officially engaged by the culture so can hold hands, have our arms around each other in public. Yes it is a very conservative culture.

But wait I was raised with that belief with in that when engaged the ring on the right when it was official it was moved to the left then it was replaced by the wedding band or added to the engagement ring the upgraded bands on the left... so... it was if they were thinking of getting married the ring went on the right when it became official it was transferred to the left hand ect... but some where it got changed between here and there.

I win, I win!

Does this mean I get tickets for two to come to the wedding?

I asked my friends Wife, why would they put the engagement ring on the opposite (right) hand? She wasn't sure, but did say maybe they do that until the couple actually get married, then they switch the ring to the left. I'll have to remember to tell her she was right.

My Wife and I are so happy for you Mark. I think following traditions is awesome, and puts more "weight" on the occasion. It allows you to see how very important this covenant really is.
