It's National Wedding Month (in the states, but we can celebrate too!) So, of course, the reason why you get married is to officially commit and be bonded to the person you love. Forever and ever. Now, have you ever wondered, 'How did that start?' Who said 'Hey, you two are together but it only becomes official once we have a big ceremony with all your friends and family!' Who? And why? I have searched Google high and low and came up with so many different answers. But the most common and earliest record show to unify and show respect for a higher being. Through time getting married had different meanings. For love, for wealth, or for power.
