A wealthy Arab businessman has treated 13 couples from the tiny African nation of Djibouti to a free wedding. Why not!?

The couples were chosen from hundreds who replied to an advert seen on TV, radio and in print, offering the all expenses payed mass ceremony.

In order to qulify couples had to “be Djiboutian, be a love match, one of them had to have a job, and had to demonstrate they had enough money to bring up a young family.”

“I am very excited, and I hope to have sons and daughters from my marriage,” Amina Omar Aden, one of the 30 brides all dressed in white gowns, said.

“I am very happy, because it is the 30th anniversary of our country and we are marrying. Ibrahim Loita has helped us so much,” Ibrahim Dhaban Hufane a bridegroom from the Arte region told the BBC.

Dubai businessman Sheikh Ibrahim Said Ahmed Loita paid for clothes, hotel party and accommodation and the dowry of $400 given to each bride and an undisclosed amount to her family.

The mass wedding was even attended by the nations (dictator) President and First Lady.

Hungary regained the world record for simultaneous kissing on Saturday when more than 6400 couples joined lips for a few seconds in the square outside the parliament in Budapest.

Hungary has been engaged in an osculation duel with the Philippines since 2004, when 5327 couples kissed in Manila. Budapest won the record back in 2005, but in February Manila managed 6124 couples.

“The news came a few months ago that Filipinos had overtaken us. We became defiant and said we would take it back again,” said Ferenc Pallagi, the journalist who organised the Kissing Party.

A range of kissing styles were on display in the capital from intimate pecks to shameless slurping.

Couples were asked to kiss for only ten seconds but many could not resist going on for a bit longer as fireworks were set off to celebrate the win.

The square had been cordoned off for months to stop anti-government protests.
