If you are thinking of getting married in foreign countries, which speak languages that you cannot understand you must read article.
The Celebrant and employees of ViluBeach and Spa resort in the Maldives used their native language, known as Dhivehi to viciously insult an oblivious couple during their renew vow wedding ceremony.
While the Islamic-style ceremony sounds legitimate to an English ear, a translation of the marriage vows reveals the celebrant, an employee named Hussein Didi, had other intentions.
The staffs of luxury resort, where room rates start from $1335 per person per night, have reportedly been sacked after the video emerged online.
I don’t understand the language but below is the translation of the dialect from the video link: http://news.ninemsn.com.au/world/8114601
"You are swine. The children that you bear from this marriage will all be bastard swine," Didi says, according to the.
"Your marriage is not a valid one. You are not the kind of people who can have a valid marriage.
"One of you is an infidel. The other too is an infidel and, we have reason to believe, an atheist who does not even believe in an infidel religion."
He is holding a document in his hand that shows text referring to "staff employment", suggesting it has nothing to do with marriage laws in the Maldives.
The couple are surrounded by close to 15 employees from the resort, none of whom attempt to stop the ceremony.
Didi reportedly continues insulting the English-speaking couple, who have not been identified, for nearly 15 minutes.
At one point the bride bends down to plant a coconut tree and a man is heard saying "can see her breasts".
Didi replies: "She is wearing something ... because my beard has gone grey watching those things. I have seen so many of them now that I don’t even want to look any more when I see them".
Police in the Maldives are investigating the incident, which has reportedly horrified the country's tourism authorities.
In a statement, the resort's management expressed "deep concern and regret" over the insulting ceremony
