The trials of translation

Two of our friends are getting married later this month. I was given the order of service just to see what happened during a typical wedding.

I was particularly surprised to see the 11th item on the schedule. I thought that this would only happen after a few months of marriage...

Whilst 'swear' is a correct translation, 'promise' may be more appropriate.

This is payback - I've had people laughing at my Khmer for months.
