Marriage is the institution in which two or more individuals are joined, for various reasons, but the most common being religion or reproduction. The ceremony in which marriage begins is called a wedding ceremony.

Various cultures had different methods to dissolve a legal marriage, such as through a divorce. In some cultures a marriage was for life and could only come to an end with the death of one of the parties.
