Unusual Marriages From Around The World


We profile a portion of the world's most surprising wedding customs from France's stomach-agitating La Soupe custom and German plate-crushing to Borneo's post-wedding washroom boycott and China's crying ladies. 


Following their wedding services, some South Korean grooms are exposed to a specific ceremony before they can leave with their new spouses: the beating of their feet. His groomsmen or relatives take off the man of the hour's shoes and tie his lower legs with a rope prior to alternating to beat his feet with a stick or, now and again, a dried fish. Despite the fact that clearly difficult, the custom is over rapidly and intended to be more entertaining than a demonstration of discipline, and evidently – as the man of the hour is regularly tested and addressed during the demonstration – the beating of feet is implied as a trial of the recently married spouse's solidarity and character.
