The young couple received a wedding payment of approximately 575 euros as part of the government's Birth Encouragement Program, an initiative that hoped to spark a baby boom there. Nagorno-Karabakh, a disputed region controlled by Armenians, is internationally recognized as a part of Azerbaijan.

@ovcharova_mariya Have a look at the groom and she’s been told she will now be a baby-machine. Could that explain the gloom. May seem strange to us, but seriously, we don’t know what these people have suffered. Maybe even lost loved ones that should have been at their wedding.
