@Ms. Martian: 

  Late response, but that was a very interesting feature! Sad about the tradition of kidnapping brides, though. 🙁

“She’s a beautiful girl, the most popular in school. It is too bad she didn’t finish school. It makes more sense for her future though. She will be better off married,” said her teachers.

Poor girl.

This is unrelated to the article but something i was a bit suprised by.i moved to mexico and now live here I went dress shopping with some friends, and they asked me “so what budget has orlando (my fiance) given you for the dress?” and i was completely bemused as to why he should have any thoughts on the matter until they added “because of course the groom pays for the brides dress!!”. Not sure if its a country wide thing or just where we live, but i didnt expect it!

@jessitaylor:  in the mexican culture it is (or was) customary for the groom and/or his family to pay for the wedding, including the dress and anything else for the bride. that’s how it was back in the day, but it’s not a “rule” that everybody follows anymore.
