Abstract

This paper looks at courtship and marriage dynamics during the Middle Ages, focusing on the treatment of women. Laws were provided by the church and state, but were carried out in a way that contributed to the systematic repression of women at the time, and often contradicted themselves. Between their families and aggressive suitors, women lived in a society pitted against them.
