'Ghost bride' sold twice into marriage

Recommended Posts

Still Waters
A woman in China was sold twice into marriage within days, despite both she and the grooms being dead.

The woman, from China's Hebei Province, near Beijing, died over the Lunar Year holiday, according to the Global Times.

But her family decided to sell her for a "ghost marriage", a superstition that sees dead bachelors married off so they can wander the afterlife together.

Despite Mao Tse Tung attempting to stamp out the practice after he and the Communist Party came to power in 1949, the black market for 'corpse brides' continues to thrive today.

No bigamy in the afterlife then. That's good.
