Did the Inca people get married?


Show Answer

Yes. Marriages were arranged. Once a year, the head of the village or town would line up all the single young men (age 20) and all the single young women (age 16) to pair off. If more than one man wanted to marry the same girl, the parents of each son would present reasons why their son should be selected as the husband. The head of the village or town made the final decision. If a man did not marry by age 20, a wife would be selected for him. That was the law. Inca Weddings
