Here are some interesting tidbits of truth on marriage written by David Louis in his book 2201 Fascinating Facts: Based on a document of Kentucky marriages, 1797-1865, one Moses Alexander, aged 93 married a Mrs. Frances Tompkins, aged 135 in Bath New York on June 11, 1831. It was also recorded that the newlyweds were both found dead on their bed the following morning. People tend to marry partners who live near them, according to the US Population Council. The Roman emperor Nero married his male slave Scorus in a public ceremony. To the ancient Incas, a couple was considered officially married after they took off their sandals and handed them to each other. In 1976, a Los Angeles secretary named Jannene Swift officially married a 50-pound rock. There were 20 people who witnessed the wedding. (2021 Fascinating Facts by David Louis)
