Hey, remember Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s reality TV special that also doubles as their wedding? Well, there’s just one slight hiccup in their filming / wedding plans: According to RadarOnline, if you want to get married for a reality TV show in France you have to have been living there for at least 40 days prior. Dammit, won’t somebody think about the ratings?
Radar reviewed the law with the French Embassy in Washington D.C. whom advised: ”All marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place. The mayor can authorize the deputy mayor or a city councilor to perform the ceremony in the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least 40 days preceding the marriage. These requirements can not be waived.”
Well that’s just great. Now what are Kim and Kanye supposed to tell their guests? Specifically the sound and lighting guys. They already RSVP’d months back! They took time off work so that they could come to the wedding, and then work. And what about the bride’s family? They just ran-through the finalized script for the show, and now they’re going to miss that magical moment. France, you are terrible. Just terrible.
