Dating and marriage customs in sweden Sexy teacher and student chat
In Sweden, equality is highly cherished and emotions are looked down upon.
As a result, foreigners often have a hard time finding love because they are unable to get potential Swedish love interests to open up.
Apparently they have trouble getting into the rules of the Swedish dating game.
One of the most common places to find a partner is at a nightclub (or a mutual friend’s party), which may seem pretty obvious.
Apparently, it goes way back to the Roman times, and was either done to help the couple be fertile or to banish evil spirits. Wow, I was lucky I didn’t pick out a red dress for the Swedish wedding, cause I didn’t know about this.
One for the engagement, one for the marriage, and then one for when the couple becomes parents. It’s not only the groom that gets to kiss the bride in Sweden.
Apparently, if the groom ever leaves the room, then the bride is open to receive kisses (usually on the cheek) from anybody who is willing.
I knew some Swedish wedding traditions from my own experiences, and I decided to look up what other traditions I may have missed. In fact, when Crown Princess Victoria got married and wanted her father, King Carl, to walk her down the aisle, there was a bit of an uproar (if you think about it, it is kinda sexist).
While my American fiancé isn’t down with all the traditions, I am going to steal this one a bit. She has a silver coin in her left shoe and a gold coin in her right shoe (or perhaps vise versa), given by her parents.
It seems that if a woman wears red to a wedding in Sweden, it means she slept with the groom.
