What happens if a marriage in Cambodia isn't consummated?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Does the uncle get the same rights to ensure the bride measures up.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

In Botswana it is common for boys to tell girls, before marrying them, they have to prove they can have a baby. Then when they get pregnant, the boys disappear. So there are a large number of single mothers, often living in poverty.

I assumed the young Khmer girl was married to a young Khmer man, who would have thought the groom was a young Botswanan?
