Norwegian weddings today look similar to those of the U. Of course, there are still brides who wear their bunads!
But dating was like a foreign language to me – as it is when I watch American movies and television shows.
I have been contacted by more than one person wanting to date Scandinavian people or even marry one of us. Marrying a Scandinavian Let me answer the last question first: Yes, many of us choose not to get married but that doesn’t mean that we don’t live together or have children in well-established partnerships.
The order of toasts may go as follows: father of the bride, the groom, the bride, maid of honor, bestman, groom’s father, bride’s mother, groom’s mother, grandparents/godparents, friends, and finally the "Thank You for the Meal" speech.
Following dinner, the wedding cake may be cut and the guests can help themselves to the variety of cakes and coffee and an after-dinner drink.
But I know from statistics that more people live together than are married – and that is counting all the old people who got married back when that was still something you did (in Norway it was illegal to live with someone without being married up until 1972 – imagine that! Dating a Scandinavian I’ve always been fascinated by American date movies because it’s like watching some weird rituals in some far-away country I don’t know very much about.
I’ve also lived in several non-Scandinavian countries for longer periods – USA, Greece, Germany and Italy, when I was young and single and thus in the dating segment.
