The article was excellent. Unfortunately radio and TV shows (reality shows) that promise love, money and power are a joke that insults the intelligence of the human being. It is also one of the reasons why the Western World is decaying.

There is a difference between not being able to get married and not being able to afford an expensive wedding. If Andrus and Siiri do not want to get married before having the means for a wedding luxurious enough for their liking, it is purely their own choice. In Estonia, there is no social stigma attached to people who marry low key, or skip the wedding celebrations altogether.
It would have been right if Siiri and Andrus had won. The judge said Siiri is not feminine enough, is that a reason not winning your dream wedding when you live in a small town where there are no other jobs available and her man has two jobs, parents have animals to take care of and she helps with axing wood etc. I have done that myself to get the house warmed up by that time my parents came home, it was just one of these things that had to be done. It doesn't make anyone less feminine.
