Russian service BBC told the stories of those who play the wedding on credit. Then they become bankrupt.

And talking to journalists is “difficult” and “embarrassing” for them.

The Russian service of the BBC published a material by Olesya Gerasimenko about the reasons why Russians marry on credit, and the consequences to which this leads. Most often they declare bankruptcy. There are several illustrative stories in the text, briefly about one of them.

From the BBC publication

As noted by Gerasimenko, most often people who have taken credit for the wedding and are faced with adverse consequences refuse to talk to journalists. They explain that they are “hard” and “ashamed.”
