• Why Vietnamese bride suit yourself bogus wedding
Imagine you're at a wedding - there are a lot of guests and relatives have gathered from across the country, celebrations two days in a row. There are suspicions that the bride is pregnant, but it's not as scary as she happily and lovingly looks at her fiancé. And what, if in fact it does not make any wedding, and the groom - a fake. Like his parents, and his relatives, and his friends. And they saw each other for the first time only the day before the celebration.
Fictitious wedding recently become a real business in Vietnam. Here, the "rent a husband" - this is not the Assistant Welfare Officer in the house, there is really a possibility to rent a husband for weddings, family reunions and even divorce. And this is not just a whim girls who want to wear a beautiful dress and was done on "a major holiday." For local girls such a wedding is often the lesser evil in their situation.
According to local tradition, if the woman gives birth to a child while unmarried, she is destined to become an outcast. This girl's relatives often send anywhere in the village, where nobody knows, only she would not disgrace the family. Or she comes to have an abortion. In such circumstances, it is not surprising that it was in Vietnam, the highest rate of abortion in Asia (!), According to statistics, every woman of reproductive age in Vietnam commits to 2, 5 abortions for their lives. About 40 percent of all pregnancies in this country are cut off with the help of abortion.
"The local women have access to contraception, but they continue to come to the clinic for abortions. They come 3-4 times - and this in spite of the fact every time they explain about Rizk associated with this operation, "- says Nguyen Duc, director of the Institute for Reproductive Medicine. At some point, the situation was so serious that the ratio of worn-out and births to terminate a pregnancy was 1: 1.
I used to have become pregnant unmarried girls had a choice either to have an abortion, or to go to the other end of the country where there is no one who knew her. But now there is another option - to play a fake wedding. In marriage agencies have candidates for any request: for wealthy clients, and for the poor. The cost of this depends on the groom's volume of services provided: either it is just to be at the wedding, or for a year to appear periodically and at family celebrations, access to the people and events that support our neighbors illusion of family life. A similar set of services could cost the bride's family at US $ 4,500.
With the bride groom first met the day before the wedding. It comes with a "parent", which are also, like him, are actors. They learn a history together each other's names, invent a common history, which will be announced at a wedding. A celebration is planned in such a way that "the signing of the marriage contract" on their wedding day, which, of course, and does not, have passed without witnesses. The only document which is signed by the bride - a marriage contract with the Agency for the provision of services and payment for them.
Such marriage agencies are constantly faced with criticism, however, they will appeal the fact that it's not their whim to arrange such ostentatious weddings, and society itself compels girls to such decisions. Families of girls are willing to do anything to save face in the eyes of society. If they do not, they are simply expelled or izzhivut of their community. Moreover, many women argue that the option of bogus weddings is currently the only option that allows the girls to save their child and stay without outcasts themselves. Children who were born under the guise of such marriages, already several years old, and their mother's claim that if there were no shell weddings, these children also would not be.
