BETROTHAL AND MARRIAGE IN GREECE. [Newspaper Article] — The Urana Independent and Clear Hills Standard — 4 April 1913

BETROTHAL AND MARRIAGE GREECE. In Greece the responsibilities of married life are assumed at a much earlier age than with us; a Greek girl is considered to be of marriageable age at fifteen, but may be wedded at twelve. Similarly it is permissible for youths to marry at the age of four teen. Matches are generally arranged by the parents. Brothers frequently make large sacrifices and remain themselves unmarried in order to pro vide their sisters with dowries and start tliom in life. A dowerless girl has slight chances of matrimony, al though in Greece there is a superflu-, ity of men. Betrothal no less than marriage is celebrated by a religious service. En gagements are usually very short, and betrothals and weddings are often celebrated in private houses, and not infrequently together. Man and maid stand together before the temporary altar, by which is the priest. On it lie tlie holy Gospels. The bridegroom I is attended by a friend whom we should call the "best man," but who in Gre...
