Wedding and Ring


The first wedding bands date back to the Roman Empire 100 AD. They were made of iron and meant as a promise to marry and rather promise rings. The Romans associated iron with “bonds”.

From 200 AD fashion changed to rings made of gold decorated with precious stones and pearls. For the first time rings were considered as a proof of love. In many European countries the wedding ring is worn on the base of the left ring finger.

Wedding Marriage

A wedding is a ceremony where the groom and the bride are united in marriage.
The word “marriage” derives from the Middle English “marriage” which first appears in 1250 – 1300 AD. This in turn is derived from the Old French word marier (to marry) and ultimately Latin maritare meaning to provide with a husband or wife and maritari meaning to get married.

Wedding and Love

Marriage is a truly ancient institution that predates recorded history. But early arranged marriages were seen as strategic alliances between families and aiming at controlled access to inheritance of agricultural land with the youngsters often having no say in the matter.  And of course, love had nothing to do with it.
But with the changes from kingdoms to democracies and agricultural to market economies the notion of marriage started to transform. For example, it became less important for young people to have their partner’s permission to wait to give them an inheritance or to work on their land. It became possible to marry whom they wanted.
By about 200 years ago, the notion of love matches gained traction. But mutual attraction in marriage wasn’t important until about a century ago.

Wedding and Polterabend

The list of wedding traditions and rituals around the world is endless....  In Germany the “Polterabend” is very common. The word itself derives from the verb “poltern” (making a lot of noise) and the noun Abend (evening). It is not the same as a bachelor party, which is common in many other countries.  At the “Polterabend” the couple celebrates together with their friends and family, breaking porcelain.  According to superstition this is meant to bring good luck into their marriage. Whereas at a bachelor party the groom and the bride go out separately and celebrate with their friends the last day of their so-called freedom.
