The ceremony itself would be a wedding; marriage would be the ongoing relationship. -LtNOWIS 21:54, 27 November 2008 (UTC)

Indeed. Aaaand...this article is extremely short for something that has so many appearances.—B-Boba Fett! Make the check out to "Boba Fett" Jaster's Feather 21:27, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

Do we have anymore information about the actual weddings? I mean, what sort of things are involved? Ringbearers, best men, bridesmaids, or something much more alien? 03:59, April 29, 2010 (UTC)

  • Star Wars: Union is probably your best source on that. Star Wars weddings seem to be about the same as Earth weddings. -LtNOWIS 23:37, May 1, 2010 (UTC)

It seems like Bail and Breha Organa had a forced, or at least arranged, marriage. I haven't read the book where it says so though, just the article. In the marriage of Han and Leia entry it says that 3PO was ring bearer and Luke was best man, so it seems like they have those, but again i don't know any sources. And wouldn't it be better to have a picture of Anakin and Padme since that's the only time it appears in the movies? and it looks like they have white wedding dresses, too. and right the Jedi could get married a long time ago? I think Nomi Sunrider did. does anybody know when it was forbidden, and why? I've only watched the movies and read on Wookieeperdia, so i just don't know any sources. 18:20, November 19, 2010 (UTC)another long lost Solo cousin (november 19)

How non....descriptive... Edit

"Marriage was a ceremony whereby two individuals were married. " I'm pretty sure all everyone, or at least all native English speakers were taught in English class that you can't descibe a word, using the word it Is it possible to re-write this in a more logical manner given the sources we have on it? Korsa3 01:15, May 20, 2010 (UTC)

That looked pretty weird to me as well. However, to say anything further, pretty much all instances and references to marriage will have to be examined. It's not bonding to only one person, as we have the Cereans to show otherwise, so they're worth mentioning once one knows a source. It's a kind of bonding, often done under the law, because the individuals felt there was a purpose, emotions, morals (like Quinlan and Khaleen), or simply the need for an heir, and there's probably an instance of forced marriage that I do not know of, but then, each of those would need a source. A mention of some notable marriages is needed eventually as well. This article may end up like tattoo and torture in the end because it seems likely the majority of the article will eventually consist of numerous examples and their explanations of the subject. Again, sourcing, sourcing, sourcing is the key, but unfortunately, I'm bad with that. Tusken432Raider 23:14, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

Expansion Edit

OK expanded the article from a one liner to lovely 4 paragraph article! does this qualify for removal of the "expand" header??? Songjin 15:16, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

  • Yes. However, I have a few notes on your style. On Wookieepedia, we single space after periods and we maintain a strict Neutral Point of View. This, simply put, means you cannot refer to someone as "infamous" or "interesting." NaruHina Talk Anakinsolo 17:27, March 31, 2011 (UTC)
    • I see noted. the fullstop thing was accidental but thanks for catching that. :) Songjin 01:44, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

Naming Conventions Edit

Should a paragraph on naming conventions with marriage be included? Most people (at least humans) were born with two names, a personal name and a surname. When two people were joined in marriage, the female added the male's surname to her own. Leia Organa married Han Solo and became Leia Organa Solo, Mara Jade married Luke Skywalker and became Mara Jade Skywalker, Jaina Solo married Jagged Fel and Became Jaina Solo Fel. Should it be included, or is it not a common enough practice in the GFFA? Timballist0 (talk) 18:08, January 26, 2013 (UTC)
