Ask Mr. Donn
The Middle Ages
Did people get married during the Middle Ages?
Yes. Marriage was one of the sacraments, and thus very important. Women had to be at least 12 years old and men had to be at least 14 years old to marry. For the nobles, marriages were arranged. Sometimes the bride and groom knew each other, but often they did not until the marriage had been arranged. Women had no say in selecting a husband. Medieval Marriage
