How Would Your Wedding Have Looked 100 years Ago?
Valentine’s Day is coming up - can you feel the love in the air? Our grandparents & great great grandparents certainly could. Check out these photos of lovers from throughout the 1900s. Did you know? Anthropologists believe that the first family groupings consisted of several men and women forming loose alliances, creating tribes where sexual unions were shared. The first known recorded marriage was around 2350 B.C. in Mesopotamia, although for thousands of years the definition of marriage varied. In Europe and Asia, especially, the idea of one man and multiple wives was popular for centuries. In the modern era, romantic love has usually been the basis for marriage. These are some lovely examples of the beginning of, and everlasting effects of, marriage based on love.
