A huge Nigeria mass wedding actually had over 1,000 couples married at the same time. On Dec. 20, Yahoo shared about this hug wedding that took place. Islamic religious authorities married 1,111 couples at the same time.
There has been a rise in people that are having children that are not married yet and also there has been an increase in divorce. Deputy Gov. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje feels like things are getting bad in their area and they want to put a stop to all of this going on. Adultery and prostitution is on the rise and they do not want things to get out of hand.
This was also a great way for people who can't afford a big wedding. This way they still got to get married, but it did not cost them a fortune to do it. It was nice that over 1,000 couples were able to get married at the exact same time in a huge Nigeria mass wedding.
