Are you married or single? Well, In both situations you can also relate to this but as you’re married, you’re already screwed. You decided to do this. You picked one human and decided to only do the bang-bang with them for the rest of your life. Everything considered, however, your wedding day is typically pretty fun right? There’s parties, celebrations. Typically you get to eat a lot of good food. So for the one day, you can pretend everything is going to turn out okay. But not if your parents insist that you and can’t go to the toilet for 3 days. LOL
You heard it right!! Here’s some countries that insist on embarrassing the shit out of a couple on their wedding day. And they have to follow them. Its better to be single, NO?
