the last one i'm not too sure of - that the 10 virgins were all supposed to be "brides". sounds to me like they were part of a ceremony welcoming the groom, for a procession. and 5 of them got locked out of the reception, if not the wedding ceremony. i am not really up on eastern weddings tho, so i am far from certain.
