Bizarre Marriage rituals! (pics)
There are number of diverse cultural practices around the world when it comes to marriage. We just listed some of the most bizarre, at least to a westerner’s eye, form around the globe:
1. East Africa
In some East African tribes girls stitch everything but a small opening to urinate. This is to prevent sex before marriage!
4. New Guinea
A tribe in New Guinea allows children to have sex at the age of 6 to 8, while the age of boys is determined between 10 to 12. They can have sex before marriage, but are not allowed to eat together before the tie the knot!
5. Cook Islands
In Mangala (Cook Islands) boys have sex at the age of 13 with elder women so that they can be taught the act of sex. These women teach the younger boys how to pleasure their female partners by prolonging the sexual act. Who said only the US had Mrs. Robinsons….
7. Sambian Tribe
Young men in the Sambian tribe of New Guinea are kept away from women. They have to swallow the semen of the tribe’s mightiest warriors. This practice is considered a vital part of their initiation into manhood!
