      Tying the Knot Folklore By Kitty Ariza
      Visit Kitty

      The old cliche' "tying the knot" has been around for centuries, rope
      and cord was used for many purposes. The first form of legal
      contracts, a knot was tied to symbolize legal contracts. A witness
      would tie a knot if he could not write, he would tie a knot in a
      strap and it was attached to a document.
      Knots and cords were used as jewelry in primitive times. Cords were
      more common in the betrothel than the metal rings. In ancient times
      weddings were steeped in superstition, they believed that there were
      evil spirits out there to harm the betrothed.
      There are many explanations for the "tying the knot " cliche'.
      In Asia Parsi and Iranian couples would be separated by a crutain and
      would join hands and their hands were tied together with a cloth and
      double knotted, then a piece of yarn was wrapped around the couples
      hands seven times, seven times around the couple and then seven times
      around the knot.
      One source believes the expression comes from Roman times when a
      bride wore a girdle with knots and the groom needed to untie the knot
      on his wedding night.
      In some parts of Africa the hands of a bride and groom were tied with
      braided long grasses to symbolize their union.
      The Celtic custom known as handfasting is binding of the hands, but
      it meant a trial marriage. They would be married for one year and a
      day, which at that time they could make the marriage permanent or go
      separate ways.
      In a Vedic marriage in India one of the brides hands is tied to the
      groom's hands to symbolize their union.
      In Mexico a cord ritual is practiced called the Lazo. A cord is
      draped around the shoulders of the bride and groom. In the front is a
      cross of Jesus, which means the union is blessed by God.
      In some cultures friends used to tie the bride and grooms clothes
      together symbolizing unity. Bows and ribbons were traditional wedding
      favors that signifyed the marriage knot.
      In Sinhalese Buddist wedding ceremonies, a gold cord is tied around
      the fifth finger of the bride and groom. Water is poured over the
      knot signifying the sharing of their lives.
      In a Russian Orthodox wedding an embroidered cloth is wrapped around
      the couples hands. The scarf is called a rushnychok and is made for
      this purpose.
      Long ago when certain indian tribes wed, a finger of each the bride
      and groom was cut until it bled and then that hand was bound together
      to mix the blood for their union.
      Today some clergy will wrap his scarf around the hands of the bride
      and groom symbolizing their coming together as one.
      In some cultures the knot poses a superstition of evil. A Syrian
      groom has to make sure no one has placed a knot among his clothes. To
      him it symbolizes impotency.
      The knot symbolizes love, loyalty, friendship, duty and the main
      symbol is unity.
