According to a column in "Ripley's Believe It or Not," the Tujia people in China have a unique ceremony in which the prospective bride and her wedding party cry every day for a month before the wedding. They do not say if the tears are happy tears or not; but if they are not, we can only wonder how many days they will cry after the wedding. All marriages will experience times of tears. Some will be sad, and some will be happy. Let's hope the majority are happy tears.
