    Love and Marriage in Medieval Ireland

    Love and Marriage in Medieval Ireland

    This week, France became the 14th country to approve a law allowing for same sex marriage and adoption rights. Our own recent constitutional convention voted in favour of holding a referendum on this issue. These marriages will be purely civil in nature as same sex unions are against the teachings of Christian churches. So, how long ago did marriage became a sacred act and how have our attitudes to formal unions changed and progressed down through the centuries? Medieval historian Gillian Kenny came in to talk about laws and practices surrounding marriage in medieval Ireland.
