There’s a funny thing about love–it’s just blooming all the time. Nothing stops it. That’s one of those things that lets you know the human race is worth fighting for. Either that or we’re nuts.

This is a group wedding of 150 couples in Beit Lahiya, Gaza. The little girls accompany the grooms who are sitting separate from their brides. Group weddings are performed all over the world for couples who can’t afford their own extravaganza. This one was funded by al-Basheer Society for Relief & Development.

We wish them long & happy lives together. May they & their children live to see a democratic secular state in Palestine.
