Marriages can be tricky. But no one can possibly imagine just how complicated this marriage of a Mexican mayor will be.
This Mexican mayor chose to marry a female crocodile. The reptile seen in the video is quite young, but is considered a princess in regional customs. The marriage is supposed to boost catches of fish, shrimp, and other seafood along the Pacific coast, reported Sky News.
Before the ceremony commenced, the soon-to-be bride and groom, along with the marriage party, walked through the southern Mexican town of San Pedro Huamelula seeking the blessings of the town’s elders. It was supposed to be a joyful parade which is strongly hoped will bring good fortune on the town. In fact, the mayor publicly announced his desire to marry the crocodile to help the town.
“It’s my wish to marry the young princess,” Mayor Joel Vasquez Rojas said as the pair tied the knot. He then “danced” with his new wife in his arms. They were immediately joined by the town folk who are now confident that the marriage will garner them good catches from the sea.
