What was a Soviet wedding like? How much was it different from what we see today and from what contemporary couples arrange on such an occasion? The first we notice are faces of people. Just look at them.
Lady with blue dress in first picture looks like my grandmother. I am not joking
The above pics represent the Stalinist retreat to conservatism and tradition from the progressive 1920s which (unofficially) advocated free love and/or communal lifestyles (as per Marxist/anarchist/socialist theory).
I hadn’t thought of that, but you’re right, (r)evolutionist. One of the things that anti-Communists berated the Soviets for was free love – apparently the agitprop trains weren’t just for showing movies
When the USSR failed to establish socialism, it failed to revolutionize the family and the status of women. The return to traditional, patriarchal norms was the result.
Good point! I like your contributions on this blog!
Thank you, Comrade.
I’ve seen more fun at a funeral.
No duck lips on those faces.
Putin’s wedding photo also a bit same like these…
I saw sylvester stalone is 6-th picture, in rigth side
Hey c’mon, they look like thry’re having fun… mostly anyway. A charming evocation of a bygone era which they, at least, had survived.
Wtf is up with those three freaks in #6??? What happened to their faces?
I have the same one of my parents))
Must have been very memorable to have part of your wedding celebration at an oil field.
Is it Leonardo DiCaprio on last photo?
