We've been counting down to the opening of The Young Victoria tomorrow by looking at the Victorian era and how people flirted and celebrated Christmas. Today we're checking out how people married and what traditions endure today.
Queen Victoria married for love — a rare affair for a woman of royalty in the 19th century. While poorer women had been doing this for ages (less money was at stake), it was during the Victorian era that romantic love became a priority for marriage. See what other customs grew out of this period.
