    Arranged Marriages IV
    Arranged Marriages IV

    Arranged Marriages IV is a revival of this thread. Arranged marriages were somewhat common back in the days, with families picking who their children would marry to maintain familial ties, keep the bloodline pure, or just to make sure their children married those the families found desirable.

    Before posting in this thread, remember the following things:
    — It's most likely that women would be arranged with men who were more than five years their senior. Age gaps between 8-10 years were not uncommon. Some arranged marriages, however, had an age gap less than that if the son in mind was the first son or was set to inherit due to their father's passing.

    — Make sure the character in mind's parents would set up an arrangement for them before posting.

    Here is the form to use:

       Barnabas Skeeter, Cassius Lestrange, Rasmus Mohr, Tristan Michaud
    Since his wife and daughter's death on July 17, 1887, Mathias has not left the home and refuses to take visitors. Letters can be sent to him for contact, but there's no guaranteeing he'll write back. He's not eating or sleeping regularly and refuses to leave his son's presence most of the day.

    Halfblood | Upper Class | 18 | Played
    Requirements: Age can range from younger (if wealthy with good outlook) to older; no maximum age for this as long as his reputation is a five, four if he is wealthy or has a good job. Mrs. Banne would much prefer someone who is the first-born; preferably, though a second-born will do as well. She will only consider a third-born if they come from a distinguished family and their elder brothers' are taken. She will only accept offers from UCPB or UCHB.
