It is foolish to marry someone because of love even if love may occur sometimes in marriage.

The matrimony is arranged by families of the bride and the groom in order for the two sides to benefit from one another. Families of landowners were expected to marry just to augment their land possession.

Like today, Elizabethan England marriage ceremony was considered to have a religious intonation.

The ceremony would vary but the prerequisites before the matrimony was always the same.

Women were regarded as second class citizens and they were expected to tie the knot despite of their social standings. With parent’s consent, a boy and a girl were allowed to marry at the age of 14 and 12 although it was not common for marriage to take place on such a young age.

Boy would often not marry until they reached the age of consent, 21.

Most art was done in the form of portraiture and decorative arts; however, architecture was a big form of art in this era as well.

William Shakespeare lived in the time known as the Elizabethan Era.

It was named this because of the rule of Queen Elizabeth I.

After the basic sketches of the form were created, the artist would later paint and enhance the features of their model (Olsen).

In the Elizabethan Era, painting and portraiture weren’t the only forms of artwork even though portraiture was considered the only “real art”.
