Deciding who to marry, performing a wedding ceremony, and the following family life is unique to each culture.
In Cuba, these aspects are decided mostly by tradition.
Like most young people, Cuban people hope to find a relationship that will not only meet the expectations of their family and community, but also their own expectations and desires.
Cubans have big wedding ceremonies for the bride, groom, and the family.
Cuban marriages are always between one woman and one man.
Years ago in Cuba, it was not uncommon for good friends to arrange marriages between their children.
Marriages and family are important to people in every society in some form or another.
Each culture has set rules to determine who is appropriate to marry and who is not.Many cultures mark the beginning of a marriage with an elaborate ceremony, others have no formal ceremony and may be marked by some kind of gesture such as moving into the home of one's chosen partner.Life after the wedding varies widely from culture to culture, usually with the married couple starting a life together.The choices of partners is limited to those outside the family.Marriage is not allowed between couples who have any known blood relation.On the other hand, if there is more than one child, the first to be married brings the spouse to live with the family.
