Very Unfortunate English and Cambodian Couple, No one Come to Their Wedding

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Such dumb shit. He isn't Chinese. There'd be no issue if she just married some drunken bumpkin from that backwards village.

A wedding without the herds of annoying guests? Sounds like the perfect wedding to be honest...

I hate to be pushy here but exactly when is it to "be continued?"

That marriage prakhas is so transparently xenophobic above and beyond the greasing of bureaucratic palms.

I think people the world over make too much of such formal ceremonies and rituals. It's so much show and little substance.

"It's so much show and little substance." An excellent description of the lavish frivolity The Khmer excel at. If it looks good it is good.

What exactly did he do that was "illegal" to be refused approval?

Looks under 50 or whatever the law is. Do they have some inane yearly salary criteria imposed on the foreign groom, too, so that if he's between jobs then they won't approve the wedding?

Yeah, you need to make $2500 and over. Still, it's hypocritical of them given that half the "jungle weddings" out there are "shams" the paperwork isn't done so they technically aren't legally binding, but they make a big deal out of it because he's a foreigner... Seems like an article aimed at instilling fear towards the "evil foreigners".
