It turns out marrying a local girl is just too expensive, for some.
Not only does the groom have to buy the bride lavish jewelry for her wedding day, he must also purchase an elaborate wedding gown, and pay for a ceremony-- complete with entertainment-- and an evening meal for hundreds of relatives.
Now the government has set up a special marriage fund, to help bridegrooms cover the costs.
So far more than ten-thousand couples have tied the knot in cost-effective, but traditional, group wedding ceremonies.
