Rue des Epouses, Fribourg, Switzerland

This narrow street is named "spouse lane" because it lead married couples from the civil registry at the town hall to their marriage service in the gothic cathedral. The archway sign above the road says (in French and Swiss German) "Congratulations! Take pleasure, groom, you good man, for by the end of tomorrow, your woman will be wearing the trousers for sure".
