In Afghanistan, wedding celebrations are a unique opportunity for people to show their hospitality.
But the size and scale of the events has prompted the government to consider a new law aimed at curbing the extravagant feasts that weddings often become - especially given the level of unemployment and poverty in the country.
Officials and other tribal leaders now want to limit the number of guests, as well as the items on the menu, which would instead be drawn up by the municipal authority.

(THANK YOU PRESIDENT BUSH!)
Something similar to what is going on in America maybe? As the average duration of a marriage approaches fifteen minutes weddings become more and more spectacular as if a huge wedding would make up for the lack of commitment.

(Trying to reason with a liberal is like teaching algebra to a tomcat.)
The only thing that government should limit are the AK-wielding morons who fire off a 1,000 rounds, drawing fire on themselves.
