On Lao Weddings

(translated from the Lao, sorry)
What is the wedding?
In the glade, a small distance from the small wooden houses spread to a dozen tents. Apparently, all began early in the morning: it was in the midst of merriment, the clone to the apogee. Scores are not the most sober of Lao eyes opened in astonishment at the sight of a foreign guest. Some of the men in the years say thoughtfully:
- American ... 1
Tables are covered with all kinds of Lao food. Salad of papaya, finely-cut roast pork, sticky rice noodles, and of course the «Birlao» and lao-lao 2. A woman of forty years, invited me to the table, behind which sat the nine people: men, women, a pair of young girls. Immediately was awarded glass lao-lao:

- Cheers! - And raised a glass of Lao silence smiles. Moonshine was pleasant to the taste and is easy to perceive. Go around the table slowly run a middle-aged man in the colorful shirt popular cut. The sleeves slightly wrapped wrists and drag gum, people at tables suyut sleeve rolled currency. I have contributed in foreign currency: $ 50 bills.
- This is a club gathering, - commented the man at the table to the left of me - can not be taken in hand, happiness is not.
Talk to me did it in good English. In the 80 years he studied in the Soviet KGB in the school. But now it is - the head of the village, where we gather.
- Where is the bride and groom?
- They are not here. In the bedroom already. And we celebrate and wish them a happy life.
- They left the guests after the marriage?
- Not so ... we do not have registration. Simply, they have decided to be a husband and wife, and was invited to the village for the wedding. Here we have gathered, young pobyli here, we wished them good, and they wanted to retire. It usually happens ... but what else needs a wedding?
Meanwhile, a roadside park Motobike old man. In view of 60 years, and I was sure that he was under 80. Laotyane always looked very young. He otvyazal large bundle from the back seat of a motorcycle. Something big was wrapped in a dark-blue cloth, and firmly pull off a rope.

Because of huge loudspeakers «fossil» columns smack lilis folk motifs.
- I - Manivon, went dancing - has invited me to a girl, continues to bestow his attention.
Lao dance - this is not tango. And do not even slow dance. Men and women stand on one against the other and gently wiggle. At the same time, more people do not dance, but their hands. Hands vyutsya like a snake, something invisible hand of strokes and all of this slowly paced sound, departing from the meter columns. Bass beat on the feet of the sound wave. Manivon smiles. Without understanding the language of Lao dance, dance, I quickly naskuchivaet, and I go back to the table. In the meantime, the woman served the table with new dishes.
The girl has cleared the banana and roll them in the air in front of you hinting at something obscene. She gave me the fruit. I took it, made an appearance that does not understand and did not notice. Gash «Birlao».

In Britain, not necessarily marry!

At times, when sex before marriage was considered immoral, has long passed, more and more young people begin living together already once held in one bed for quite a long time.

A wedding speech is not-why, because together, and so bad off, but you can always pozhenitsya To Be, for example, if the child is born. But even after the birth of a burden many never reach zagsov, believing that there was nothing objectionable in that the parents are not officially registered.

However, as found issledovateli-sotsiologi, few are aware that such alliances are actually worth nothing from a legal standpoint, of course. The fact is that the couple are not formally married, are not eligible for any financial support from the spouse, for example, with alimony, or to joint ownership nor the right of inheritance.

Of course, young people such things usually do not worry. As long as love is strong, any legal disputes and the problem seem to lose money, which will not affect the happy couple. But sometimes feelings pass, and property disputes remain.

British authorities have first to realize that the problem must be resolved such unions. And to legalize them is the only right decision. The British long ago realized that bachelors persuaded of the need for social cell useless. Some youth-general allergy to such activities.

Therefore, the authorities decided to make some changes in legislation, which is designed to improve the lives of more than 2 million undocumented couples. Incidentally, sociologists projected increase to 3.8 million by 2031 year.

Chansellor Lord, who made a proposal for spousal Union, met with harsh criticism from the Anglican Church. The clergy believe that marriage is a sacred institution and the attempt to legitimize bogomerzkoe phenomenon such as the legalization of illegitimate unions, unworthy of the House of Lords.

However, not all agree with the view tserkovniki Anglican. For example, the Rev Simon Stanley, Vicar of St. church. Chad in New York, believes that it is necessary not only to legalize young heterosexual couples, but also all the other "living together": babysitters, nannies, nurses and homosexual couples even if they live under one roof.

As a result, the Legislative Commission approved the bill on unregistered marriages, which are scheduled to complement the Bill of Rights by July of 2007. Presumably, will be developed in a document which will specify the conditions in advance of cohabitation and follow-up, if the couple disintegrate.

Sandra Davis, one of the developers of the new law, is confident that, despite its merkantilnost, innovation will become popular. "At least, they will be ready for the fact that the joint life is not only a romance," she believes.

Meanwhile, Britain has such decision as soon kill two hares. Besides unregistered British couples avoid confusion with the legalization of same-marriages. By leaving the issue of gay venchanii to the discretion of the Anglican Church, in law is not in the power business.

Thousands of single men worldwide have found happiness dating a Russian woman. And on the other end of the scale thousands of single men wouldn't even entertain the idea. There are many reasons why perfectly normal professional single men choose to marry a Russian lady.
Happiness alone is not an end-all product.
Many of the single Russian women are successful already in their home country, and are just looking for a husband from abroad to care for them. They are not in it to scam anyone, they genuinely want to marry a foreign man, and start a new life in another part of the world.

Single men from all over the world choose to start dating a Russian woman because they are something more attractive than they would normally date back home. These women see someone beyond their looks, and are very attracted to the way they're treated as women. This is what excites them about foreign men. You will find most men get a Russian bride who's a lot younger than they are. This comes back to the same quality as before. Older men will generally treat women better so older men have a better chance with Russian women.

These are professionally run events hosted by the Russian bride service, and they have staff in attendance as well.


Institution of marriage changes the division of labor

The age-old stereotype that women do more housework than men has gotten more credibility with a study co-written by Mason sociologist Shannon Davis.

The study of more than 17,000 people in 28 countries found that married men report doing less housework than men who are live-in boyfriends.

This study was published in the Journal of Family Issues by Davis and co-authors Theodore Greenstein and Jennifer Gerteisen Marks of North Carolina State University.

According to Davis, the key finding of the study is that it suggests the institution of marriage changes the division of labor. Couples with an egalitarian view on gender — seeing men and women as equal — are more likely to divide the household chores equally. However, in married relationships, even if an egalitarian viewpoint is present, men still report doing less housework than their wives.

"Marriage as an institution seems to have a traditionalizing effect on couples, even couples who see men and women as equal," says Davis.

While the researchers did not follow cohabitating couples over time to see if their division of housework changed after marriage, their study provides a "snapshot" in time of couples all over the world.

"Our research suggests that couples across many countries are influenced by similar factors when deciding how to divide the housework," she says. "It’s the way the society has defined what being married means, the institution itself, that affects behavior."
