Japanese Wedding Ceremony

  • Today I will go to my friend’s party associated with his marriage.


    (I will be careful not to drink too much.)

    Recently in Japan, about half of married couples don’t hold a wedding ceremony.

    The main reason is because it costs too much money or it’s difficult to prepare for it.

    Also, from the same reasons, couples that hold a small wedding ceremony with only their relatives have increased.

    My friend and his partner belong to such a couple — today’s party is just a party with their friends to celebrate their marriage, which is not a wedding ceremony.

    Maybe you should consider a wedding ceremony, because I found several interesting information: about 90% of couples who held a wedding ceremony were satisfied it; about 30% of couples who didn’t held a wedding ceremony divorced; almost all women have a longing for a wedding ceremony.
