Ahh, young love

And I thought arranged marriages were bad. Here's a story (from the New York Post) that gives some insight into Ethiopian mating rituals, namely the kidnapping and forced marriage of the bride to be. In this case however, a few lions seemed to object to the wedding and could not hold their peace.

Here's an interesting stat at the end of the article:
"Kidnapping young girls has long been part of the marriage custom in Ethiopia. The United Nations estimates that more than 70 percent of marriages in Ethiopia are by abduction..."
I'm surprised we don't here more about this type of thing.

Thanks to The American Thinker for the original link
