8.8.08 9000 Estimated to Marry In China

Weird Asia News

It's a numbers thing you may not understand.

In China, the number 8 is considered lucky. So it is no accident that the Olympics would start on this day, so why not have a mass wedding of Olympic proportions. These couples are just superstitious they are following a long held belief that the number 8 brings prosperity, wealth, and good fortune. Looking at the statistics, prosperity, wealth, and good fortune are important components to a healthy marriage. Bad finances is the number 1 cause of matrimonial issues, Romance Without Finance Is a Nuisance.

So I think the Chinese have it right. Enjoy this custom even if your are not marrying today. Have 8 bridesmaids, wear a silver 8 charm inside your dress, carry 8 roses, you get the idea, enjoy this custom even if it's not your own. But keep it real, marriage is work and you should not be blinded by the hype. The word marriage is just a few letters away from mirage and you don't want to be have some kind of optical phenomenon. Go into your nuptials honestly, open, and with love, your path to prosperity, wealth, and good fortune will be a easy.
Now I'm going out to play lotto, just in case.
