This contest is fueled by the following news: A wedding is a solemn ceremony dedicated to the initiation of marriage. Different countries have many legends: signs, songs and rites related to marriage. In some cultures a wedding is followed by religious rites (wedding ceremony in Christianity and etc.). The participants of a wedding ceremony: the main participants of the wedding ceremony are the bridegroom and bride. In the cultures of various countries in the world, a significant role is played by relatives of the groom and bride. The toast-master is the Wedding organizer. In some parts of the world the wedding ceremony is held in the presence of witnesses. The wedding ceremony in many cultures means the ritual moving of the bride from her parents home to the groom's home, the exchange of gifts, wedding feasts etc. Wedding rituals follow the conclusion of marriage. At the early stages of social development, during mother-family formations, weddings were a simple affair. Wedding as a ritualized make-up of marriage got special attention during the patriarchal period when a single marriage (monogamy) and shifting of spouses into bridegroom's house (patriarchal marriage), was practiced. The main idea behind the wedding rituals in many cultures is the bride moving out of her parent's home to grooms home, i.e. a dramatized version of a woman's entry into a new family, a new family line. This event, as a rule, is followed by the exchange of gifts, a festive feast, merry-making and etc. Relatives of the groom and bride and also special ceremonial persons like matchmakers, groomsman and bridesmaids participate in the wedding. The content of these weddings varies. Often a drama is played out, that the bride is forcibly taken away by the bridegroom and his friends and the resistance of her relatives to that and etc., this reflects a period in the history of marriage when the new (in comparison with the previous times) order of patriarchal village and submission of woman to the man and his relatives. During the dissolution of the patriarchal society, when for a woman considered to be a labor power, a certain payment was demanded (Veno among some European people, kalym among Mongolians, Turkic people and others), the "sale" of the bride came up in the staging of wedding rituals and along with that emerged the ritual of looking like she would be a brought bride. Many wedding rituals are associated with religious concepts, have a mystic sense, and are invoked to protect the newly married from "evil spirits", "hoodoo" and etc. Many cultures, where the religious reverence of the hearth and home (patron of home) existed, movement of the bride from one family to another followed by a farewell of woman to the hearth and home of the parents and the dedication to the husband's hearth and home. In weddings of Slavic couples, caucasians and many other people, grain, wheat flour, hops, various nuts etc, are heaped on the just married couple and stand for copiousness, prosperity and so on. Together with this developed ritual emerged a ritual dress code for the bride and groom and the participants of the wedding. Zero gravity, weight and its perception: Weightlessness - also known as zero gravity - is a condition of the body, when it is under the influence of only body forces. For example, under the influence of only gravity - gravitation. Motion under the influence of gravity only is also called free fall. Apart from body forces, if other surface forces act upon the body, for example, a supporting force, then the zero gravity condition arises. Definition: Body weight is a force with which the body acts upon the support. Whatever people perceive as weight is only due to the effect of the supporting force or environment on their bodies. The force acting on various bodies, situated on Earth, is unequal. If a body is conventionally divided into horizontal layers, then it is possible to show that even the pressure from the above-positioned layers shall act upon each layer apart from the forces of downstream supports. The person senses a similar pressure differential as weight.
