Finnish dating marriage

Village young people also met during their work and at evening socials.

When bicycles came along, young people had more opportunities to meet.

The guilty party then might have to pay a fine and a guilty suitor had to return the gifts.

In western Finland when banns were published (from the 18th century on), the bridal couple was given a small silver stick and a crutch to express that the couple had been "cast" from the pulpit and had in the process "broken their legs".

According to an tradition, a betrothed woman in Finland was called a maiden or bride; in Karelia she was also "something to be given away." Upon marriage she became a young wife.

These terms were used until the birth of the first child.

Recently I read that the minimum marriage age was set in the Ecclesiastic Law of 1686.

It was 14 for boys and 13 for girls in the 16th century.

If they married against their parents' wishes, they could not expect a dowry or inheritance.

The betrothal was made in the presence of a pastor.

In western Finland a party was held on the first day the banns were published.

If the answer was favorable, the girl and her parents visited the suitor's home.

The future daughter-in-law might also stay for a week and help with the household work. and in the 17th century it could be silver goblets.

Girls under the age of 20 weren't considered mature enough for marriage, but by age 25 a girl was looked upon as an old maid.
