Never say amen to a prayer in a language you don’t understand

Being humiliated is never fun especially when millions are watching you being mocked while you renew your wedding vows, but I couldn’t help smiling at this sad episode.

Maybe it’s a European thing… a western thing, but why do you folks get off on other peoples ‘traditions’ that is so far removed from your culture? Why enter into something you are clueless about?

You would think going for romantic sunset walks on a Maldive island beach or sunset sailing was enough, but this Swiss couple went steps further and bought some sort of marriage renewal vow package for something like £1000 and then got tore up by the ‘officials’ conducting the ‘ceremony’. I’ve never understood people who need to renew their vows. Aren’t vows meant to last forever or at least until you can’t stand the person you are married to anymore?

The unwitting couple were told “You are swine, the children that you bear from this marriage will all be bastard swine. Your marriage is not a valid one. You are not the kind of people who can have a valid marriage. One of you is an infidel. The other, too, is an infidel and, we have reason to believe, an atheist, who does not even believe in an infidel religion.”

Right now bosses at the Vilu Reef Beach and Spa resort, are working over time in damage control and even the government are getting diplomats to have a face to face meeting with the couple to smooth things over.

Oh and if you have to convince yourself that you guys are still in love, find a damn place closer to home or at least where y’all share common laws and language.
