If you want to marry a Korean girl, it’s very tough at first, because their culture is totally different from Canadian or American culture. Korean girls won’t allow you to interact with their family till you assure to marry them.
When you have stepped out and popped the question and need to consider the wedding preparations and requirements, it’s better to purchase jewelry and other expensive materials from your home country. The cost of jewels is nearly 50% higher than in Canada. The average cost for marriage is 11 million Won. You have to prepare the legal documents and registration. For getting settled into a home and getting it furnished the total cost may 70 million won (Korean currency-which is equals to 86,000$). 40 million should be paid by the groom and 30 million by the bride; seems like the stronger gender pays more.
