The one thing every human society has in common is marriage. However some societies have gross, confusing, terrifying, or any mixture of the three wedding traditions. Have a read of these strange wedding traditions…
Although weddings are usually accompanied by tears, brides and females of the Tujia people in China take matters to a whole new level. Starting one whole month in advance the bride starts to cry for 1 hour everyday. Ten days into the ordeal the mother joins in, and then ten days later the grandmother does the same. By the end of the month every female in the family is crying alongside the bride. Why? Well, it’s actually supposed to be an expression of joy as the women weep in different tones, kind of like a song…a very salty, wet song.
