Ancient Marriage by Jamie

  2. 2. Ancient Greek MarriageIn Ancient Greek marriage, childbearing (teknopoioia in Greek) wasthe main reason for marriage. If a women doesn’t reproduce with herhusband she is not only allowed but required to marry a differentman.
  3. 3. Ancient Greek Marriage Cont.There were no images on google that actually made sense and/orwere appropriate for a school setting on the subject of Ancient Greekmarriage. Sorry.
  4. 4. Ancient Egyptian MarriageAncient Egyptian marriage was a complete bonding of one’s spiritsand both people, the wife and the husband, were treated well. Mostpeople got married at the age of 14-15 because the life expectancywas so low that you needed to reproduce as soon as possible. Intoday’s society that would be horrendous because they are notadults yet but we also have much longer life expectancy.

  6. 6. Ancient Mesopotamian MarriageIn Ancient Mesopotamia marriage was viewed as a transaction. Thebrides father would give the husband money if the bride messed up. Ithink this is quite sexist towards women because they should havetheir own say in this ordeal. I don’t understand why the men in thisancient society could treat other humans as inferiors. The womenweren’t even considered human, they were items.

  8. 8. Ancient Viking MarriageViking marriage was seen as the bonding of families and their propertyrights. Of course, the male was the head of the house. Vikings werequite masculine orientated. If the men couldn’t do it then it wasimpossible for women to do it as well. As I said with Mesopotamia Icompletely disagree with this custom.

  10. 10. Canadian MarriageCanadian marriage is quite equalized between genders. If anymistreatment happens it is illegal, no matter the authority of theabuser. The only obstacle of having a marriage is that if you are poorthan you may not be able to afford one. Sometimes, all you have todo is arrange it with the government. So maybe it can be free.
