Marriage Customs in Russia

online dating - 3 november 2023

Persons enjoy celebrating their marriage with their family and friends. Depending on where you live, marriage customs can vary greatly, but some people stick to a few tried-and-true elements and add some eccentricities to their rituals.

A few goes through a pomolvka, or commitment interval, before deciding to get married. The man may make many trips to his upcoming girlfriend’s home and parents during this time to try to win her hand in marriage. This dialogue typically has questions and answers and is riddle-like in nature. A ”yes,” ”no,” or ”maybe” could be the response.

The couple must then delay at the registration business until their enrollment moment. It might take up to three months to complete this. They are not permitted to join or see each other during this time. This is done to stop a fugitive union.

The few must defeat a variety of challenges on their way to the registry company, but the couple’s home makes up for them. Testing of power, intelligence, and a variety of different abilities may be included in these. The man must spend a payment if he fails, which is typically coins, candies, or candy bars.

After the civil ceremony the couple goes to a venue where they have a reception. There they are greeted by their guests and the toastmaster, who is known as tamada (tamaa). The toastmaster runs all of the contests during the celebration. He also says several toasts, tells jokes and sings songs. Once he drinks the first shot of champagne or vodka he starts all the guests to shout “Gorko!” which means bitter.
