Résumé :

"Getting hitched by an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas. Sleeping on Limburger cheese on a Scottish wedding night. From Arabic weddings to Zulu weddings, Marriage Customs of the World takes readers on a tour of customs and ceremonies associated with marriage that cross cultures and continents. More than 200 A-Z entries, peppered with dozens of photographs, reveal both striking similarities and dramatic variations among marriage rites and rituals." "Spanning countries, cultures, religions, and rituals, Marriage Customs of the World traces the evolution and current practices of wedding ceremonies, dispels myths concerning the origins of contemporary customs, and examines changes in attitudes and legislation. From arranged marriages to the huppah, readers will discover how weddings confirm the establishment of new family units, provide financial assistance for couples, bring them good fortune, and give formal recognition to unions the church or state might not."--Jacket.
