Marriage in Your Nation:



How many people are married annually in your nation?: Our nation is too young to give any real statistics, but we'd say 8 hundred thousand.
How many people are divorced annually in your nation?: Our nation is too young to give any real statistics, but we'd say 2.5 hundred thousand.
How long does the average marriage last?: Until death.
Is marriage considered a legal, binding agreement?: Yes, but domestic violence/abuse, desertion, and adultery will put a swift end to it.
Is marriage between individuals other than a male and female(e.g., polygamous, same-sex, interspecies) legal?: No to all of them. Polygamy is seen as highly disrespectful and uncivil, gay marriage is viewed as unnecessary, and we don't like all non-human species, with the exception of the Kekistanis (and they usually don't want marriage with humans either).
What is the legal age at which one can be married?: 19 years.
What is the average age at which people in your nation get married?: Mostly in their late 30s, due to the millennial youth of most of the population and mandatory military service.
What people in your nation are authorized to marry couples?: I'm going to assume you mean someone like a pastor. Well, either a religious leader or a civil judge.
Is infidelity/adultery commonplace in your nation?: No. With most of the population religious, either Kekism, Christianity or Islam, adultery is almost condemned by the public.
How many children result from the average marriage? Depends on the couple.
How is the institution of marriage regarded in your nation?: It's viewed as a peaceful starting point in one's life, a celebration marking the end of one's youth and the start of one's full maturity.

Marriage in Your Nation:



How many people are married annually in your nation?
Perhaps around 6.2 per 1000.

How many people are divorced annually in your nation?
Less than 1 per 1000.

Is divorce legal?
Divorce is referred to as an annulment in Ephyra, as it enables the freeing of both man and woman to re-marry if they desire.

If so, are grounds for divorce required(e.g., domestic abuse) or is divorce on demand?
Grounds for divorce/annulment are required. Given the status of women in Ephyra, it is usually requested by the man or the woman's family. A man can request an annulment if his wife is committing adultery for example, but doesn't have to. A woman's family can request an annulment if they believe he is treating her more like a slave than a wife, as they would regard this as an insult to their whole family.

How long does the average marriage last?
Usually until both partners are dead. In the ceremony, marriage is considered binding until death and the life beyond, so if you wanted to be pedantic, the average marriage lasts forever.

Is marriage considered a legal, binding agreement?
Yes. Participants swear an oath to each other, committing their loyalty and love for one another. As this is done before the gods, it is considered legal.

Is marriage between individuals other than a male and female(e.g., polygamous, same-sex, interspecies) legal?
Polygamous marriage is acceptable, though not common for anyone below the social class of lesser noble. Polygyny is the only form of polygamy, with one man having usually no more than three wives. This isn't a law, but most men generally agree that one wife alone can be enough to handle, so to have two or three is quite extreme. A fair amount of the aristocracy consist of men with two wives, whilst some in the Imperial family have three. Same-sex marriage is completely illegal. 'Homosexual activity' such as same-sex intercourse is not outright forbidden, carries virtually no negative consequences for two women, but negative consequences for the non-dominant man in a male-male sexual act. 'Homosexual tendencies' is when an individual is believed to be only attracted to the same sex, as opposed to simply wanting to have sex with both for pleasure rather than reproduction. Those found to be afflicted with such tendencies of wanting to reproduce with the same sex are taken away and treated, thus anyone insane enough to request a same-sex marriage in Ephyra is going to be spending their time at a mental institute. If you commit bestiality, you're going to be burnt alive.

Though it isn't listed, it is actually a common practice amongst the nobility (more common than polygamy) for some fashion of incest to take place. The Ephyral gene make-up gives them resistance to the physical side-effects of the act, but mental ones can manifest in being somewhat dim-witted, or alternatively, completely psychotic. These are not common however. Incest in this fashion is usually between a brother and a sister, often the heir of a family and his eldest sister, or closest age-sister who is still fertile. If there are no sisters, it isn't uncommon for these men to be wedded to a female cousin of the household, or who is of a different family branch. This is done so that no questions can be raised about the legitimacy of the offspring, as the children are born from siblings or cousins. In some more extreme cases, usually when a citizen family is raised to the position of lesser noble, or in just any other scenario where either a suitable male or female is lacking, it can occur that an uncle will marry a niece. In some cases, these can be similar aged, but the majority of the time the uncle is substantially older than the niece. These marriages are arranged, and rarely do either the male or the female have a say in this arrangement. The Anogaryen dynasty is the most fanatic of these, for as the Imperial family, they regard very few other bloodlines as being suitable to marry into.

What is the legal age at which one can be married?
Boys become men at age sixteen, and thus can marry then. However, girls become women whenever their first menstrual cycle is. This is seen as a sign from Asaelya, goddess of motherhood, that the girl is now a woman and fit for breeding, which means at the most extreme, a 'woman' can be wedded at age ten. However this is rare and regardless of when the menstrual cycle took place, a woman is almost never married before the age of fourteen. This does provide an odd scenario. Because the age at which girls first have their menstrual cycle varies, it is possible that a twelve year old has had her blood and a fourteen year old has not. This would actually make it more perverse to marry and have sex with the fourteen year old than to do the same with the twelve year old. Because of this issue, most women are only permitted to marry at around fourteen or older.

What is the average age at which people in your nation get married?
The average age for marriage in Ephyra is between 18-20 for men, as males have to perform military service so they cannot always marry in time. Women however have an average marriage age at about 16-17.

What people in your nation are authorized to perform marriages?
Anointed priests and priestesses of the gods are authorised to perform marriage ceremonies.

How common is infidelity/adultery in your nation?
That depends. A man will often justify not having sex with his wife and having sex with other women as seeking out concubines or even another wife. Of course this doesn't make his wife happy but there is no crime committed if he does this. Similarly, the use of a sex slave is not adultery either. However, if a man repeatedly has sex with other free women, but takes none of them as concubines or as wives, the family of the wife can file a suit of dishonour against the man, accusing him of dishonouring his wife and her family by choosing to mate with other women over her.

Women committing adultery is rarer, but by no means completely uncommon. In fact, it is believed to be more common amongst the nobility than any other class. As such women were married to men, largely against their expressed wishes or actual desire, some of these women find other men to satisfy them. This occurs even in voluntary marriages, as it is typically known that the purer the blood of an Ephyral woman, the higher her sexual libido. This does not mean however that adultery is tolerated. If a man is found to be dishonouring his wife, he can either pay a fine or give up his wife. On the reverse, punishment of an unfaithful woman is up to her husband. Typically, the punishment for adultery can be public, but at the discretion of either party, this can be circumvented for other measures. A man may often strike a wife who has been unfaithful, and often the man with whom she betrayed him. The most humiliating punishment a man can inflict on his wife for infidelity is the implementation of a chastity belt, to physically ensure she cannot have sex with another man, nor satisfy her lusts with anyone but her husband.

How many children result from the average marriage?
Usually at least four, though this can vary upon the fertility of the woman and the ability of the man.

How is the institution of marriage regarded in your nation?
Positively. It is viewed as a great step to join together beneath the gods, and have your children blessed and legitimised by the gods themselves.
My beliefs are whatever convinces you that I am irredeemably evil.

What are some important cultural marriage customs in your nation(e.g., dowries, wedding celebrations, honeymoons, etc.)?

This blood-oath is as serious as a warning label for a poisonous substance--breaking it will likely cost the person everything, including sometimes his own life.
