Usually, wedding celebration means fun and laughter, dancing and merriment. But, the picture is a little different in Congo, where the groom and the bride are not allowed to smile during the entire wedding ceremony. Moreover, we also came across the fact that weddings in Congo are very elaborate, i.e., they last for about half a day. The purpose of this custom is to test the seriousness of the couple’s decision to get married. Huh…now this is some real serious affair.
