Traditional Marriage

As fans of Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention, we know that the medieval canon is filled with folk songs about daughters of noblemen marrying kitchen boys. Sometimes everyone realizes that the boy must have been noble all along, so they make him a Lord first and then let him marry her. Other times it's to everyone's shame and they end up killing the boy and giving his heart to the young Lady. I sure miss the old traditions of marriage.
