Getting Fat for Marriage

We all have heard about marriage makeovers; where couples undergo physical makeover starting from 3 to 6 months before the big day.
In some cases this might get start well before one year from the wedding.
Couples undergo this makeover to reduce their weight to look great during their wedding day.
This so true to the rest of the world except for a community in Nigeria.
Here the girl has to gain at least 30 pounds in order to get acknowledged by the community, that she is ready for the marriage. For this makeover she will be taken to a separate place where all the girls will be given special massage treatment and high carbohydrate content food. Only her parents are allowed to visit during this period.
