How many times do you have to marry?
« on: September 10, 2018, 07:06:20 PM »
A couple divorced. Wife  remarried. Their daughter got married  and did the wedding with the mother and the new husband.

Then a few years later, the daughter did another wedding with the father to fully complete her wedding.

Is this normal?

That's what happens when mother and father can't get along? I see that happening with my daughters too. The real question is, did her husband pay both parents or how is the bride price distributed in situations like this?

Cot dam reporter, your English is bad today. 

For a moment there, I read that the daughter also got a divorce and did a second marriage with the father. 

A wedding is a party.  You can party as many times as you can afford to.  However, a wedding is more sacred.  If you did a wedding and feel incomplete and needs a second wedding then your first time around is lacking and not legit. 

Make it more complicated by having another wedding with her new step father.  Don't complicate yourself.  Only time I think another wedding is necessary is after a few years, a few kids, the old hag just doesn't put out anymore.  Time to renew your vows to get laid.

That's why you have to understand the cultural connotations more.

Mother collected the bride price at the first wedding.

When the daughter held her wedding through the father, the groom wouldn't pay anymore. The groom insisted that he be credited for his payment to the mother but that he would pay for the cost of the meal. So, the father only hosted the wedding at his place the second time.

That's what happens when mother and father can't get along? I see that happening with my daughters too. The real question is, did her husband pay both parents or how is the bride price distributed in situations like this?

So, it is normal and okay for them to hold two weddings, each with each former parent and then do a third  at an uncle's? After all, the elderly rep must acknowledge the wedding, too, right? :2funny:

These people must be loaded to be throwing wedding receptions left and right.  Thatís a bit excessive, but like previous comments, if they can afford it, have it as many times as they want to. After the third or fourth one, it may become meaningless.  :-\
 I guess itís ok as long as they donít ask their guest to pay $1k like some other post someone posted.   ;D

True. It becomes meaningless as more weddings are held.
