The wedding ceremony in Belgium remind some usual celebration. Wedding in Belgium is not as colorful as wedding in Serbia, that is for sure. People have official registration and move to the restaurant. If the family is religious, before the restaurant family goes to the church and gets blessing for the future common life. There is nothing really special in the restaurant, where people are eating, drinking, dancing. The thing is that many marriages are conducted in Belgium by people who are often over 40 and this is not a crazy wild party full of youth. This definitely influences the way how the celebration is held.
Peculiar thing of Belgian wedding is traditions that could be even cruel even though it is quite conservative European country. For example, it turns out, that among the Flemish youth are common stupid jokes. For example, during the wedding they remove the wheels from the car and hide it somewhere and newlyweds can’t get anywhere. Or they can put the entire staircase to the dwelling with glasses of water close to each other and newlyweds could not get to their floor after the banquet for few hours. Imagine how much time you need to get rid of glasses with water and how pissed you will be if you are just married and get such a “surprise”. Or friends cut down the main switch in the basement and grease the steps with something slippery. One guy died after his own wedding when he went to turn on the light and broke his neck.
How are Belgian women as wives?
Again, it all depends on the particular woman, but you can think of it from the angle of equality, femininity and emancipation. Belgian women are not bad housewives, but you have to be ready to share all the house duties with your wife. Every Belgian woman leaves herself a place for personal development and personal space- a good news is that you are going to get your own one if you didn’t have, but you have to be ready not interfere your wife to be alone when she needs it. Life with Belgian wife is interesting, you both share responsibilities and duties and both enjoy your time – together and by your own when it is devoted to something that only you or your wife like.
