Thousands of couples attend a mass wedding in South Korea on Monday.

The late Rev. Sun Myung Moon, who founded the Unification Church, started conducting mass weddings in 1961, promising couples who participated that they would have children free of original sin. Moon died in 2012, but his followers, known as “Moonies,” have carried on the tradition. (📸: Chung Sung-Jun/Getty Images)
