Superstition leads to strange wedding traditions.

Recently Mexican mayor Joel Vasquez Rojas married a crocodile. Rojas said, "It's my wish to marry the young princess." Caught on Camera reports, "He then danced with his new wife in his arms before guests joined in."

The reptile wears a white dress in this video. The YouTube summary says, "The reptile is a princess, according to local tradition, and it is hoped the nuptials will boost catches of fish, shrimp and other seafood along the Pacific coast."

Another strange wedding was held recently in South Africa.

Sanele Masilela, a 9-year-old boy, remarried 62-year-old Helen Shabangu last week as her husband watched.

The boy's mother Patience Masilela told reporters, "By doing this we made the ancestors happy. If we hadn’t done what my son had asked then something bad would have happened in the family."

The London Mirror reported, "Both families claim the wedding is simply another 'ritual' after Sanele was told by his dead ancestors to wed last year and his parents forked out £500 for the bride and another £1,000 for the ceremony."
