I am going to my past times. In my family there are somany weddings that i have attended. The weddings are of sisters of my father. I noted that most of brides relative cries. Her mother, sisters etc... Only ladies cry. When i asked about the secret of cry, i got the answer that it is because of her feelings to leave home and his parents. But after the marriage within two or three days she is here with her husband. And stay here for three or four days. And after that they visit here atleast three times a month. After that four month before the time of first delivery she is here and her husband visits daily. In short she was always here after the marriage also. Then my question is that for what purpose she and her relatives cry saying that they feel the sadness of leaving home and parents. I think it just like a genetic problem or genetic behaviour......

Women are more sensitive than men. So basically, in gatherings or in celebration like this, most women shed tears or go emotional. Hey, there's nothing wrong with crying. Women shed tears, mostly on weddings, because they were mostly happy for the one getting married. Just what they always say, "tears of joy". I believe that it's not a genetic problem or genetic behavior. They shed tears for the thought that they feel that there would be a great changes in their lives. In addition, maybe they witness how the two, who's getting married, really made it through. Just put it this way, they cry because they have raised a fine man or woman, and they were proud of the two getting married.

Hi wildflower! Yes, I agree with what you have said. Parents are really emotional during weddings. They get to realized that their children have grown up already and that it is already time for them to leave their family... It is really a tears of joy.

Ladies are made of water and we are easy to cry when we feel happy,sad or moved.I think the bride shed their tears on the wedding day,because they are happy to find the right guy to marry,they are a little bit agitated to say goodbye to their past life and welcome a new life,they are full of thankness to their parents...There are all kinds of feelings at that moment and tears are shet naturally.

Bride cries on the day of marriage because she has to leave her people with whom she lived till then and shared all her happiness and sorrows and had their support. Now she cannot see them daily and do not know when she can see them and spend time with them. More over the new place , new people, how they will be with her, she does not know. So apprehensions will be there for her.

Women cry when they are emotional, which can be either Happy or Sad.So when a woman cries it might mean shes going to have a Baby or that she's about to divorce her husband!

Its is only outburst of emotions by both the sides as bride is going to switchoever to another house and about to start another life. human attachment especially with womans is not easy to comeout so emotion outburst is natural. agree with u that its happen even she is here within two or three days but then also think of so much attachment from starting, away within day or two or within month.

I think women cry more thanmen simply because men are taught by society that they shouldn't cry. Who has never heard parents or others say to a little boy that he shouldn't cry if he wanted to be a man? Society looks at this as a weakness and a man has to be tough and needs to hide their feelings. This is so wrong and I am sure many men suffer from this. It's not easy to hide your emotions when you are hurt and want to cry. Now for the brides who cry, I agree, I think they cry because they are the ones who are leaving the love of their parents and family members. All what they were used to from when they were a child. Yo made me laugh when you said it's a genetic problem lol well it might be that also, who knows? Take care firumon.

I think, when you are already in that situation, you get to remember a lot of things. About all the things that you have been through in the past, and during the wedding, you will realized that your life will change. You will have more responsibilities, maybe that's reason why women cries during their weddings.

Yes i agree with you. When we think in the place of theirs may be we also cry. I think its quite natural. In the case of parents its very much affected. Thank you my dear joice86. Continue responding my dear friend.......
