On Saturday, my former counterpart (she left the office to work at a bank) got married to her long time boyfriend. Under Communism, the central government tried to replace the role of the church. In attempts to do this, wedding ceremonies take place at the municipal building. As far as I know, the ceremony its self is really short (signing papers) but the party afterwards is the big deal. Unfortunately, I wasnt’ invited to the wedding since she and groom have large extended families and there wasn’t enough room. However, I went to the municipality to congratulateĀ  her and the groom and to wish them the best of luck.
