In Afghanistan, holding a marriage ceremony is expensive. In a normal wedding party, the groom's family has to invite hundreds of guests from both groom and bride families which normally costs at least 10,000 to 20,000 U.S. dollars.

The Taliban-run administration has called on people to avoid wasting money on marriages.■
