And even thought we only spent a couple of weeks together I learned so much about the Brazilian culture, the women and the dating etiquette.
Since it is a quite new and very well accepted habit between Brazilians, it has been trivialized, specially young Brazilian couples.
For being such a new habit among couples, there are no “rules” about when this type of ring should be given.
Wearing the wedding ring after the death of the partner is also optional and varies according to the person.
There are widows that start to wear their late husband's wedding band with their own rings, on the ring finger of the left hand.
Sometimes, like mentioned above, the wedding bands are the engagement rings, just worn in the ring finger of the left hand instead of the right hand.
