Why it pays to learn the language (even if it is from an obscure island)

Ah, to renew your wedding vows, and at the gorgeous Vilu Reef Beach and Spa resort in the Maldives to boot.

Evidently this Western couple didn’t understand the obscure island language:

‘You are swine. The children that you bear from this marriage will all be b****** swine. ‘Your marriage is not a valid one. You are not the kind of people who can have a valid marriage…One of you is an infidel. The other, too, is an infidel and, we have reason to believe, an atheist, who does not even believe in an infidel religion.’  Here (Daily Mail).

Note: Maldives is the lowest level island on earth; in fact, it’s saving its tourist money, its only income, to buy land in India and Australia for the day the island descends beneath the waves. This is why the government there is so concerned about this incident; they don’t want tourism to diminish. Here.
