We also carry on some of the same traditions in today's society.

In the middle ages marriages were done by arrangement.

Marriage is a serious commitment, one that isn't taken lightly for most people.

The family of the girl who was to be married gives a dowry,or donation, to the boy she is to marry.

The dowry goes with her at the time of the marriage and stays with the boy forever (Renolds).

The arrangement of marriage was done by the children's parents.

In the Middle Ages children were married at a young age.

To marry for love without land or chattels could assure nothing but a life of penury. Not all young people, however, had marriages arranged for them.

Some were from poor families who had nothing to negotiate and hence would either not marry or marry whom they pleased.

After the marriage was arranged a wedding notice was posted on the door of the church.

The notice was put up to ensure that there were no grounds for prohibiting the marriage.

In the Medieval Times, however, marriage was quite different.
