The picture is almost devoid of the traditional wedding atmosphere. It shows the moment when a young man, who has just become a husband, is calling for an army service. Perhaps there is a conflict, it is not clear how dangerous it can be for him, what is the probability that he will return to his young wife - all this creates a tense, anxious mood, although the canvas demonstrates a fairly peaceful scene.
