I am still unsure if this was a real wedding or a photo-shoot.

Lots of people were taking pictures as you can see in the picture and I joined in.

Story Title: You May Meet Your Husband Today; 1900s

You guessed correctly that the year this title was first heard of is an exaggeration.

However, there was always someone saying something along those lines each day.

Do not wear torn panties, or you may get in an accident and meet your husband today.

How?

Would he be the doctor at the ER?

Brush your teeth before going to open the gate for your father as you may meet your husband today.

Who?

My neighbor who is sleep walking at 6am as he gets ready for work too.

That is the story of the Nigerian household where one is taught from a tender age that husbands are in high demand at a high price.

The Story: A lighthearted piece that I do hope nobody attempts or is attempting to get a man by all means.
