If you steal a person's shoe, is it a sign of marriage in some cultures?

Now, here's something interesting. I was with my friends playing around, when I took his shoe when he wasn't looking. I took off running and he was chasing after me. Then, one of the teachers told me to give it back to him, I gave it back to him and then she wanted to talk to us both so we went to go talk to her. She alerted me of the dangers of broken glass, thumbtacks, rust nails, and thorns on the campus that she's found and that it would be terrible if my best friend stepped on any one of them. I handed him back the shoe explained our story that it was just playing around all in fun. She then excused us right before saying, "In some other cultures its a sign of marriage to take a person's shoe." its been bugging me now; If you take a person's shoe its a sign of marriage?! That, or she was kidding around with me.

    That is so funny, my husband and I was separated, so his mother passed away, we were at his brother's house for the re pass, he had the balls to bring this tramp with him, it was cold as heck deep winter snow up around your ankles, girl friend pulled off her shoes & put on some socks leaving her shoes in the kids room, I went in the room took one of her shoes & put it in the incinerator. They looked all over for that shoe and couldn't fine it. She had to go home without shoes. I know it have nothing to do with your question but you made me think about it with stealing shoes!
