Dating and marriage in the elizabethan era
Elizabethan Era marriage normally takes place through the help of a miniature picture given by the man.
The picture is a symbolism of the traits and looks of the girl he wishes to marry.
Ironically, the dowry in marriages in Elizabethan England would benefit the male.
A dowry is a certain amount of cash, property, and goods that bride would bring during the actual ceremony. The husbands were given all the rights to take over their wives thus the girl would became the man's property.
This usually meant waiting at least until they were in their twenties.
