Gattina, in Malay traditional weddings, the bride kisses the husband's hands to show respect. It symbolises the idea that she will always follow what he says. Of course this must be strange to Westerners - and this is not strictly followed here anymore too. Most wives are very independent and share the marriage responsibility equally.

Naida, thanks
