The Significance of Wedding Bands

The Significance of Wedding Bands

Wedding bands/rings are considered a sacred piece of jewelry that signifies the holy union of a man, a woman and their God. The exchange of wedding rings is an expression of  sacred vows  of love and loyalty between couples, and this tradition has existed since ancient times and would never ever be outdated. 

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate. Mark 10:6-9  NIV

However, the design of wedding rings is becoming more modern and sophisticated nowadays.  There is a range of designs and styles for wedding rings which allows the couples to make their choice. Your choice of your wedding rings is an expression of your style, personality and values. Time-honored wedding rings are circular while some modern designs are angular, yet the symbolism remains the same— a token of commitment and unity and a seal of an everlasting love and faithfulness.

Wedding rings or wedding bands are extremely significant because it is a physical evidence of an abstract concept – your union, love and loyalty to each other for the rest of your life.  Wearing your wedding rings or wedding bands is a public confession that you are no longer available without saying a word. Your wedding ring confirms that you belong to someone special by the virtue of marriage, and that someone relies and counts on you.

Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral. Hebrews 13:4 NIV

Married life isn’t a bed of roses, it has ups and downs, highs and lows, yet wedding rings remind you of your responsibility and accountability to one another. Wearing your wedding ring is a sign of respect to your partner and your marriage.

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.  For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.  Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?  And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 KJV
