Maybe you can renew your vows back home or something. It's almost as good as a real wedding, you can still have a cermony in a church and a reception and everything.
Er.... thingy.

As i understand it, getting married in the foreign country is advisable not because of Taiwan's laws, but because it's then easier for the Taiwanese to get a visa to visit the inlaws overseas.

I've heard several stories from a few Yanquis here who claim that getting a visa for the U.S. became much more difficult once they got married to their wives. Isn't this why H tells people to get married in the foreign country, instead of here?

Certainly not the case in Australia yet I cannot vouch for any other country.

I think H used to say this, but it's now common knowledge that it doesn't make an iota of difference, this is acknowledged numerous times throughout the more recent threads.
