All marriages must be recorded with the Muvari Records Office to be considered official. Warriors residing in the residence of a given clan, who are not registered, are considered to be hearth guards and, by strictly enforced Muvari Law, are not eligible for marital consortium, for the family unit is the recognized as the central component to Muvari and all societies.

 

An Invitation to His Parlour

This phrase has two connotations. At one point an invitation to a man’s parlor was part of the courtship process, and a prospective wife would take part in a small repast where she would have conversation with the potential husband. Sometimes, it would even involve interviews by a husband’s other wives, where they would determine her eligibility.

In more licentious times, when the Muvari had fallen away from the worship of the Father and his One Son, a visit to a man’s parlor often meant extramarital intercourse.
