To mark the epic occasion we've taken a look back at some of the raucous behaviour from last year's celebrations. Rio de Janeiro's most famous street party opens today and a sea of Brazilian babes adorned with sequins, feathers and glitter, are set to samba down the streets of the famous city. The vibrant event draws crowds from around the world and is a huge bucket-list must-do for travel enthusiasts. But what really goes on inside the week-long party? We take a look back at 's celebrations to give you an idea of what to expect. Last year's party was alive with colour and funky samba beats as the carnival got underway at the Sambadrome. And although the skies opened just as the all-night extravaganza started, it didn't put a dampener on the thrilling performance. Colourful floats wowed the crowds, but it was the beautiful, scantily-clad women who demanded the audience's attention. From bottom-baring thongs to naked shimmering body paint, the voluptuous babes showed off their famous curves in some of the most outrageous outfits. There was certainly no shortage of skin on show during the most celebrated carnival celebrations in the world — and it's sure to be no different this year.

So although 17, police have been deployed for the carnival, large parts of Rio, like Rocinha or City of God, are virtual no-go zones for both police and tourists. Locals in those areas, dubbed favelas, have to survive in the crossfire of drug gangs and the security forces. To make matters worse for the passionate carnival-going public, Mayor Marcelo Crivella - a bishop in the evangelical mega church founded by his billionaire uncle - has cut subsidies to the annual bash in half. George Damiao, 38, who was taking part in the Imperio Serrano school's parade, said: "The schools had to use every trick to find sponsors at the last minute and make miracles for the parade to happen.

If you marry him, you are committing to accepting him without the church and all that this entails. If she won't reason with your investigation of the church, nope on out and go on your merry way. But realistically, if she is not open minded enough to even listen to someone who has a contrasting view of the church - how will she not continually discount you and your lack of beliefs.

Yes, do sever the relationship. The woman's role is to grow up, marry a worthy priesthood holder, and have a lot of kids. In retrospect, I believe I was being led to my current spouse.
