How do you know your marriage will last? Is divorce looming in your future? Will you continue to love each other or will you get tired of each other?
There are many superstitions and beliefs around the world about things that are considered bad luck before a wedding.
Here are some of them.
1. Rain on the wedding day
Rain is usually associated with tears in many cultures, while some cultures see it as a good thing. For those who see it as a bad omen, they say the rain that falls represents the tears the woman will cry during her marriage.
2. Seeing the bride in her wedding dress before the ceremony
It is bad luck for the groom to see the bride in her wedding dress before the wedding day. This is because, in the olden days, there were arranged marriages. Most times, the groom doesn’t see the bride before the wedding day. Why? Because if he sees her, he might change his mind and run away.

3. Dropping the wedding rings
