Knights of Ren Marriage Customs
As written by me, based on ‘The Bride of Kylo Ren’. These are the rules that women and the Knights follow after marriage.
-When a woman weds a Knight of Ren, she is addressed by everyone as 'Lady Ren’, not her first name.
-The Ren decides how much power/privilege his wife gets. If he says she can boss around anyone she wants, she can boss around anyone she wants. If he considers her an equal/higher rank than he is, then she is. Whoever the Ren commands, she can command if he approves.
-Lady Ren wears all black like her husband in public, but does not wear a mask. Her outfits can be accented with red or silver and have insignias on their belts/shoulders/chests. Their clothes are often made of the same material as their husbands but look much finer.
-Lady Ren and her husband are to walk arm in arm when going somewhere together, but must not make eye contact with each other or other people they walk past.
-Lady Ren does not cut her hair. As long as her Ren breathes, her hair grows. She only cuts it after his death, as a sign of her new widow status.
-Knights can only show their faces to their superiors or equals and their wives. Only Lady Ren can see her Rens bare body entirely.
-No man is permitted to touch a Rens wife, no matter how harmless the contact may be. Even a handshake is forbidden.
-Lady Ren is considered an equal to captains/generals and superior to officers and troopers.
-Lady Ren is permitted to have pets/personal droids.
And this is not a custom, but Kylo Ren obeys this anyway:
-A Ren is not permitted to abuse his wife.
“You are my wife now. I consider you my equal, not my inferior. You can make any command you want as long as it’s reasonable.”
“If your husband was on Starkiller, then he’s dead.”
“If he was dead, my hair would be short again. As you can see, it’s quite long.”
“I’m not obeying a piece of scavenger scum.”
“I am Lady Ren and you will do as I command or you can explain to my husband personally why you didn’t want to!”
“You can’t make me get rid of them. They’re a gift from Kylo and I’m keeping them. Apologies in advance for any mess they make or people they bite.”
