I doubt that all the details are known, although that would be very interesting to learn. Many things, especially the details, from the daily life of the Ancient Egyptians were lost, being preserved mostly things concerning their funerary rites, traditions and myths. However, personally I would be more interested in actually knowing some details over Asetian weddings and their own bonding traditions and how things are done in their culture since the old days. That must be beautiful...

hmm... well we do know that every piece of history has some rots in the other , so It would be doable to "calculate " back....

We know that the Romans where very interested in Egyptian culture, they did "plunder " the land for treasures...

But that was in later dynasties, in Cleopatra s time , and some from Alexander the great.

But Alexander did take Egyptian religion whit him on his rampage , he was even "made " a god by egyptian priests...

so it mite be that they still have clues to an egyptian wedding in other cultures wedding sermonizes around Europa....

So it is a slit chase, but I think that will be very much work to puzzle up in ...
It can take years ....
or someone can be very lucky ....

But it is a bit strange if the hieroglyphs does not meson weddings at all...

I think I will look at it ...

We do know that wedding rings have their roots in Ancient Egyptian weddings, since they are a circle, they never end, meaning eternity... like the marriage and love. Wealthier couples would probably have rings made out of precious metals or minerals, and the poorer ones would probably wear anything tied around the finger, like a bit of natural string, just as a symbol of their union and love. It's interesting that the tradition of the wedding rings has its roots in such a beautiful practice and belief and these days everyone wears a wedding ring without giving it much thought or a deeper value, in a time where weddings easily end and break and where love is nothing but an illusion and a lie told by humans.

People take a marriage to easy now a days ... Its a pity and a shame.

When you marry, it should be because you know you are right for one another.

And not end it just because your having a bad time, like I see it the promise between 2 people, is as sacred 2 day as it was all ages ago. ... and should not be taken lightly.. A promise is a promise ...

Yes, when I said egyptian weddings I was also thinking specially on the Asetian ways to celebrate it, although I hadn't said that in a direct way. Thank you for answering this post, all the details are precious and special and I'am enjoying reading it very much.

You're so right on this one. People these days aren't just serious, reliable and honorable about marriage or any other form of bond and relationship. They promise the whole world while things are all happy, easy and fine, but when there are problems or when people have to fight for something, they easily give up and forget all promises they ever made. Shameful. It's just like you said... a promise is a promise, nothing changes that. But for them, promising is like drinking water, just another lie said in a moment of happiness to sound beautiful or fakely artistic, when true art can only come from a true heart, something they will never accomplish or understand.

Master Luis Marques has written a great quote/thought that can also apply to this subject:

"Beware of your friends and allies, for only in days of thunder your enemies shall reveal themselves. ☥" -Luis Marques

This is very true... common friends and allies are easy to find, filled with promises and beautiful words, but only in times of big problems, big dangers and big pains we can see them betraying us, backstabbing us or just running away down the easier road. Only the truest ones, deep in the heart, will remain there, for us, helping us and fighting for us...

Very wise and enlightening words, as usual, from the Vampire Prince.

Actually I would not surprise me if the deepest ritual the Egyptians had was the wedding wright, since it left out of history , of course not the technicalities , they needed something to relate to, to keep order .

Maybe the wedding wright died somehow , because it was considered to be a part of goddess worship, it is possible that this is the cause that the sex part is tabo.... and was erased from history in a weird way, cause everybody did it , but it was taboo to do it in society, so everybody just plaid a long whit the fantasy .... that intimacy was wrong....But everybody did it, and that in its self is a controversy.

So maybe just , maybe, the dark kiss is a sort of wedding wright, since when the ancient Egyptians called somebody brother or sister , it didn't actually mean a brother from the same mother or father.

(accept when it comes to royalty .... then it could actually mean brother or sister , cause they liked to ceep things in the family.)

It was more meant as a soul mate.

Maybe I'm completely off whit this one, but I will look in to it.
