    The reason was it was the only way to get laid. That's the same reason guys went off to war, it was a way to get laid. Only the problem was they'd get laid and go off to war and get killed. The girl lost her virginity and they she wasn't chase anymore. Hence virginity lost its appeal. It was impossible to achieve after WWII.

    After thousands of years of loose adultery and such freedoms, someone powerful enough was able to get everyone to respect his coming together with a particular woman.  Seems nobody wanted to argue the point.  He must have been a pretty tough warrior. So who could argue?  Who would want to?  In the end it seems to be the way that caught on and little by little it became instituted into the normal way of life of most towns.  Marriage is what they called it and it was to be respected.  To this day it still is in a way the same thing to many.  Many others find it to be somewhat a bit too old fashioned.

    People generally married to have children.  But rather than chance meetings at the local pub, most marriages were arranged by their families to make alliances and secure wealth for their offspring to inherit.

    I'd guess pretty much the same as in later days; they found someone with whom they wanted to be together and raise a family. One might say the two co-equal purposes were companionship and propagation.
