This morning I had an interesting talk with my father about traditional weddings. A few weeks back we talked about how we're not going to have "Dinh Hon / Le An Hoi" because of the timeframe that my father will be in Vietnam. While I was doing my research how to obtain Visa's for my fiancee I found that Consulate officiers are harder now due to all the fake marriages around. My father said that we're not going to have Dinh Hon becuase of the limited time he is in Vietnam to attend. It's important for parents to attend wedding so only wedding is nessescary. I then told him about the VIsas process. He said that its not important because we're truthful so nothing going to happen. If Huong fail we'll just keep trying again and soon she'll be over here with me.
Thats not the important conversation. I found from my dad that real Vietnamese Traditional wedding takes 3 years before wedding. Before wedding its the Le Dinh Hon and after that its 3 years slave labor over at the brides house every 2-3 days doing various work around the house (exclude cooking and cleaning)
Now that's what I call serious love! hahaha that long of a wait would kill me….
