Weddings have been around for ages, solidifying the amalgamation of property ownership between two families and bringing together two people in love, but the history of weddings is a little more intricate than what most people think. In 3,000 BCE, the first ever record of a marriage occurred; In 1,700 BCE, the Code of Hammurabi stated a man needed to return the wife’s dowry if they divorced or she died without children.

The most expensive wedding present of all time was in 1981 with the gift of a stadium to Princess Salama—it cost $100 million. There are 7,000 marriages in the United States each day, despite the 50/50 divorce rate these days.
