Marriage, also called matrimony or wedlock, is a culturally recognized union between people, called spouses, that establishes rights and obligations between them, as well as between them and their children, and between them and their in-laws.
It is considered a cultural universal, but the definition of marriage varies between cultures and religions, and over time.
