In fact, the main difference from weddings in the West used to be the rather low divorce rate – but not anymore. Separations are now nowhere near as scarce, and, due to a recent change in the law regarding a partner’s pension payments, the numbers look set to soar.
However, when a marriage goes into meltdown, it obviously makes no difference where the couple met, or made their home. And the way this man (or indeed woman) recklessly dumped the big day bouquet and album by the roadside,
the partnership presumably hit rock bottom at a rapid, and utterly irreconcilable, rate.
