  The Sacred Marriage

Cultural Significance of the Sacred Marriage

The history of marriage - by Alex Gendler
This YouTube video originated from TEDEd Lessons Worth Sharing. "A white, puffy dress. Eternal love. A joint tax return. Marriage means something different to everyone and has changed over time and across cultures. Alex Gendler traces the history of getting hitched, providing insights on polygamy, same-sex unions and even marriage between the dead and the living."
