      Came in on another list.
      Thought it would be handy info.
      Trying to keep it generic to give others a chance to join.

      A marriage bond is document obtained by an engaged couple prior to
      their marriage.
      It affirmed that there was no moral or legal reason why the couple
      could not be married.
      In addition, the man affirmed that he would be able to support himself
      and his new bride.

      The bride's father sometimes signed the bond. Sometimes the grooms
      father signed it as well. Some bonds are not affirmed by the parents at
      all.
