  1. 1. ACCORDING THE STATE’S CUSTOMS, IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT MEN MARRY AT AGE 30 AND WOMEN AT 20. BECAUSE MEN WERE REQUIRED TO LIVE IN THE COMMUNAL BARRACKS UNTIL AGE 30, COUPLES WHO MARRIED EARLIER WERE FORCED TO LIVE SEPARATELY UNTIL THE HUSBAND TURNED 30. AS FOR SPARTAN WEDDING CUSTOMS, SPARTAN WOMEN DIDN’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT HOW TO WEAR THEIR HAIR FOR THEIR WEDDING,
  2. 2. • because unlike Viking brides who wore their hair long, Spartan brides shave their heads on the night of the "wedding." The bride then dressed in a man's cloak and sandals and was left alone in a dark room. Her husband-to- be visited this room and “captured” her. That’s it. They were married. Later, the groom dropped the bride off at her parents’ house which completed the “ceremony.” • men under 30 were still required to live in the communal housing. So once married, these husbands had to sneak out at night if they wanted to see their wives. Men who delayed marriage were publicly shamed, while those who fathered multiple sons could be rewarded.
