Human beings have always used their clothes, hairstyles, and jewelry to quickly communicate important information about them to people, including whether or not they are married.

Choosing to show the world one’s marital status is a personal preference that can be driven by many reasons, from displaying one’s love for one’s spouse to avoiding unwanted attention.

From the choice of wedding ring finger to the style of hair styling, cultures and communities around the world all have different ways of signaling that someone is married.
