Marriage and childbearing… An impossible dream?

It is the season of “3a2belkon” in Lebanon… This is what we used to do in the good old days and the 1500 dollars… Today, with the economic collapse taking place in the country and with the madness of the dollar and the prices “that no one is able to guide”, the word “rejoice” has become a heavy burden for you. Its recipients… As for marriage and luxurious parties, they became the preserve of those who were able to reach them…

Chloe Ghaly.. the dress, the suit, and the cost of beauty salons.. even the home equipment and household utensils, their prices range between 150 million and 200 million… This is of course if the “industry is national.” As for the talk about organizing a wedding and spending a honeymoon, it is limited to the wealthy class only.. .
Even those who decide to be satisfied with a normal wedding photo session or a “small wedding under the house” will inevitably face the issue of buying gold, so that the locker becomes one of the biggest wishes!
After marriage, the newlyweds move from the stage of “after you” to the stage of “we will make you a bride or groom”, but even this wish may seem almost impossible in the face of the current reality. The fertility rate also declined in Lebanon, after the responsibility of raising children became a major challenge for married people or even those who are about to get married.
What is happening is not normal… and its effect will be clear in the coming years… As for the wish that things will change, perhaps it is like a dream of “Cinderella with the Prince” that can only be achieved with the occurrence of miracles.
