    • Mesopotamia (Marriage) In the ancient Mesopotamia, many modern customs such as wedding can be traced back then. In Mesopotamia, girls after puberty are considered able to be married. The groom and the bride need to make a legal marriage contract first, then the wedding can be held. At the wedding, presents would be exchanged, a huge feast would be held and all the groom’s relatives will be invited. The husband also need to pay the wife and her family a price such as lambs and cows in order to marry her. However, if the groom died during these processes, the bride will have to marry the groom’s closest relative even the groom’s father. After the feast, the bride would be considered to be a part of the groom’s family. During the marriage, the wife would stay home and her job is usually to grind grains, teach and take care of her children, make food, prepare beverages especially beer. The husband's job would be to work and support his family money. T
    • Mesopotamia (Divorce)  During the time of Mesopotamia, divorce is acceptable, but the wife doesn’t have a lot of control of it because she can only suggest it to her father or his husband then it’s up to them to decide. Once the husband and the wife’s father has reached an agreement, the wife’s father will return all the gifts from the husband, except the ones that have been consumed. After that, the wife and the husband are divorced.

    • Egyptian Marriage  Very similar Mesopotamians’ marriage custom. The bride has little freedom of choosing her husband until 26th dynasty. Most people took relationships of monogamy except a few monarchies who married multiple concubines. The common age for being married is after sexual adulthood because having children plays a huge part of the Egyptian relationship. The sexual adulthood is usually 12-13 for girls and 15-16 for boys. Soon, a price for marrying a woman became a part of the Egyptian’s custom. This price can be from farm animal to huge bars of gold. Unlike some parts of Greek, most Egyptians don’t care about their mate’s nation but their social class.
    • Egyptian Divorce  There were many cases of divorce during the ancient Egypt and the two main reasons for divorcing and the following. Firstly, when a wife or concubine committed adultery which is having sex with another man, divorce would be acceptable. Secondly, if a female partner was proved to have inability of giving birth to a child, divorce is also acceptable in this case.

    • Canadian Marriage  In order to have the rights to be married, Canadians have to be over 18 years old. Comparing to the ancient civilizations, Canadian female has much more freedom of choosing their mate.
    • Canadian Divorce  In order to be properly divorced in Canada, there are about ten procedures to go through. Personally, I think the most important process is choosing the children’s future responsible parent because the children can easily be hurt during this process.

    • Roman Marriage  Rome is known for its strictness and therefore, there are less freedom for the intended couples. So basically, the marriages are planned by parents and there will be a gift for the male’s family sent y the female’s family. In the modern days, Christian weddings are directed by Christian priests. In the ancient Rome, everybody has to believe in the Rome gods but the priests do no direct the wedding, instead, a set of rituals was followed.
    • Greece Divorce  Divorces in Rome are very convenient, the male just need to pay back the present that the female’s family has given him at the wedding. However, the payback requires money not the gift it self.
