In the worst-case scenario, the man would leave the girl after he impregnated her.

Being in love can make people do the strangest things.

It just goes to show that animals aren’t the only ones capable of exhibiting bizarre courting behavior—not by a long shot.

Meanwhile, the unmarried girls—far from being squeamish—are usually eagerly watching the action.

To ensure they get the best view, the girls are placed on a foot-powered Ferris wheel (you read that right) that stops turning only when all the men have finished fighting—a process that takes several hours.

They then give the rice, rolled in a handkerchief, to the suitors who serenaded them.

If the man wants to find out if he has landed a girl, he must unwrap the handkerchief and sift through the rice.

That signifies her intention to wait for the man—provided he gives her more gifts.

Unthinkable for most prudish fathers is the thought of their precious daughter having to spend the night alone with a suitor.

If he finds two red chopsticks, then good news: It means the girl likes him back.
