I read that usually marriage happens around the time of winter, january which is a month sacred to hera. Ofcourse you would want to be blessed by hera when getting married. Woman married from an average age of 15 which guaranteed virginity and men around 30 when they would have finished military service. Typical celebrations would be held before the wedding such as the bride sacirficing her chilhood objects liek a doll to say she is a child no longer and the father of the bride and groom would sit together to chat making a pact and an official giving away of his daughter.
