Fake Bride Kidnappings
In some parts of Eurasia and Eastern Europe it is common practice to perform bride kidnappings, where a young man and his friends and relatives will quite literally abduct a bride for him. Now in Romania it has become chic to stage these events as a "fun" and "romantic" alternative to the traditional wedding ceremony the rest of us in the civilized world practice. Someone is going to get shot by a heroic and vigilant onlooker one of these days, and I will laugh.
