Medieval Marriage: Ritual, Religion and Superstition

Oh, the lords and ladies! The bonding of lovers has been a golden nugget of interest for society since the beginning of time. It has been the stuff of countless plays and stories, and studied by poets and philosophers and writers. We warmly embrace romanticized versions of courtly love and marriage set in the mythical days of King Arthur. Fictional fantasies, however, may lead us astray from historical facts.

He wasted no time in paying court to her, but her family demanded he marry her if he wanted her charms. Finally, Giovanni gave in and said he'd marry Lusanna. However, Giovanni claimed that his father would disinherit him if he found out his son had gotten married without permission.
