“On the night of the wedding, my husband married my little sister.”

There are many such terms in Afghanistan now, which say “come, eat and forget”. The most expensive thing to eat is a hotel meal. In some weddings, however, there is even a meal that is left over and there is no one to eat.
There are wealthy families who can afford an expensive marriage, but those who do not have money can afford it. Wedding salon rentals are very expensive in Afghanistan.
