A2 level. Momentos de la pareja

Updated: Jul 12, 2020

In this post we are going to learn about wedding celebration in Latin American countries and some common verbs when you are dating someone. Let's practice with this dialogue.

Guadalupe: ¿Quieres is conmigo está tarde? Mi hermana Clara y su novio, Simón, se van a casar.

Charlie: ¿Hoy?

Guadalupe: Sí, la ceremonia no dura mucho tiempo. Estoy segura de que tenemos suficiente tiempo para ir al museo.

Charlie: Pero tus padres están en Nueva York, ¿no? ¿No van a asistir a la boda?

Guadalupe: ¡Claro que sí! Regresan el jueves antes de la boda.

Charlie: Pero... la boda es hoy, ¿verdad?

Guadalupe: Sí, pero es la ceremonia civil, nada más.

Charlie: Entoncés, ¿la boda es el domingo? ¡No entiendo!

Let's discuss...

1. Why does Charlie seem so surprised that Guadalupe's sister is getting married today without her parents being present?

2. Why are Clara and Simón having two different wedding ceremonies?

Let's understand

In Latin American countries, many couples participate in two ceremonies. For most, the civil ceremony is a formality, similar to getting a marriage license. The religious ceremony is the important one for the family and the one after which all the festivities occur. Although the civil ceremony is fully legal and binding, family and friends often don't consider the couple married until after the ceremony in church.
