Family pay £20,000 for son's 'ghost wedding' to dead bride
A family paid £20,000 for a dead bride to tie the knot with their son - because they didn't want him to die single.
Sadly he died three years before he was able to get hitched, so his family gave him a "ghost wedding" with an already dead girl, and they married in heaven.
According to China Radio International (CRI), the parents were given a discount as the dead couple were a "good social match".
The odd ritual is said to be a tradition in China where the man's family reside in Shanxi Province.
It's believed to be done so that families don't feel they have committed a sin by a family member dying unmarried.
