The first step is called the Eui hon, or ‘matchmaking’, this is when both the bride and grooms families discuss the possibility of marriage.Various factors are taken into consideration such as: social status, personality, appearance, academic and/or agricultural (industrial) achievements, as well as material harmony as predicted by a fortuneteller."In general the Eui hon is determined when the bridegroom-side sends a proposal letter of marriage and the bride-side sends a reply letter which permits this marriage." Once the response from the bride is sent back to the groom, if agreed, the groom then sets up a date for the ceremony.Ceremony In ancient times, weddings (Honrye) were held in the bride's yard or house.The groom traveled by horse to the bride's house and after the wedding ceremony took his wife in a palanquin (sedan chair) to his parents' house to live.The court specifically asked the legislative branch to amend the current civil code article 809 paragraph 1 by the end of 1998, and hold further adjudication of this legislation.
Five judges found it unconstitutional and two asked for amendment by the legislative branch, whereas another two opposed the outcome of this decision.Marriage is not for the individual but rather for the desire of the family.If one decides to get married, they must get consent from the whole family.Once the date is set the groom then sends a box to the bride which is known as a Ham. This is given to the bride in dedication to wed only one husband.The wife is expected to keep this paper forever; upon death the papers are buried with the wife as well.
The bride and groom wore formal court costumes for the wedding ceremony.
