American Sign Language: "believe"

The sign for "believe" is a combination of the signs THINK + MARRY.
Memory aid: The thoughts that you have married are your beliefs.



I do this sign with an index finger and then modified "C" handshapes.  But some (many) people start the sign with their dominant hand in a loose "C" or "B"-handshape.  I don't do that because I like to avoid confusion with the sign for "HUSBAND." I like to clearly show the "THINK" part of the sign by starting with a "1"-handshape.
