It really intrigues a person, what happens after the girl is kidnapped, doesn’t it? Ancient Kyrgyz people were pretty modest in these ceremonies. There is not that much to discuss, but it is worth sharing anyways. So here is how it goes:
After the girl is brought to the young man’s house after kidnapping, she is asked to think about the marriage with him. The elders of the house do their best to convince her. In most cases, the girl can do nothing but agree, because they believed that disagreeing with elders and going back after being kidnapped only brings bad luck and misery in future.
So, after the positive answer, they call moldo – the religious preacher to announce them as “official newlyweds” and the families start the wedding “party”. They call close relatives and friends to give young couple blessings. The new bride remains in the special decorated room for about three days and only after that she starts performing household duties.
