The quote at the top of the page is unattributed. Why? If it's quoting something, it should say what it's quoting.
"In fact, in many Asian cultures (including Japanese culture), traditional weddings are very long, very elaborate and (even compared to the most excessive American weddings) very expensive—on another note, it can also be very uncomfortable for the bride (for reasons mentioned below)."
I'm missing something here. What is "very uncomfortable for the bride" referring to here? Is it a missing reference, or just one that I'm stupidly overlooking?
EDIT: And why am I seeing backslashes inserted in my post?
Should it be noted (possibly as a hot tip) that Japan isn't the only place where the wedding serves no legal purpose and is at best a religious function and at least a really big party? I don't know about other places, but this is true in the US. Just as in Japan, the wedding is a party, the ceremony religious, but the gummint doesn't think you're married until you fill out the paperwork or demonstrate that, functionally, you're married by living together for years and years. I believe the same is true for the British and the other societies they've spawned, and suspect it for much of Europe.
