Do the dishes!
The next day Smithimus and Mia were getting married. Mia wore a special dress with a belt that had a knot in it also know as the knot of Hercules and only the husband could undo. The bride would wear a veil and wore flowers woven into her hair.
After the ceremony, the newly weds would hold a feast. After the feast the couple would leave the feast, and the husband would carry the bride, so she wouldn't trip.
In lower classes, the most important job of the women was to raise the children and to manage the home. In the middle and upper classes, the woman would expect servants and slaves to help.
Divorce for Romans was just as simple as marriage. Divorce was a declaration of a couple's intent not to live together. Divorce was common because it was so simple.
If she was the one to request the divorce, then she would expect her dowry back in full. Then she would return to the protection of her father and would return to her original home.
