Dialogue 情景对话2
J: What was your wedding ceremony like, Abigail?
ABIGAIL,你的婚礼办得怎么样啊?
A: My husband and I got married in a registry office with just two friends there as witnesses. But then we had three parties to celebrate.
我和我丈夫就在两个证婚人的陪同下登记结婚了,但是后来我们举行了三个庆祝晚会。

唔,由于我和我丈夫来自两个不同的国家,我们居住在第三个国家,我们就决定在每个国家都举办一次庆祝晚会。花费也没有那么多.
J: Were your parents upset that they weren’t there to see you get married?

A: I would have liked them to be there, but they couldn’t afford to fly out to see us, and we couldn’t afford to fly out to see them, so they understood.

J: Did your husband’s family get to meet your family?
你丈夫的家人见过你的家人吗?

我丈夫的父母在我们结婚的我的市中心飞去见过我的家人,因此这个很好。一些人花费昂贵在奢侈的婚礼招待会上,但是我们一致同意婚礼晚会应该少花钱而多关注家人。
