There are many who plan some kind of joke when a couple they know have sealed their marriage plans. Friends of a couple who are to be married in August set up a billboard with a picture of the intended groom announcing his forthcoming marriage.
The billboard was set up as a joke for the planned bachelor party in Triq Ħaż-Żabbar, Fgura, one of the main roads of the locality.
The young man not only took a picture of himself with the billboard to show that he had taken the joke, but also posed there with his intended bride. However, he is not the only one to take pictures because others have stopped and taken pictures with him. Perhaps others will take a lead from this and in future some may decide to set up a billboard with a marriage proposal.
