Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) was the official union of two individuals, usually a union of mutual love and attraction. Such a union was often formalized via a wedding ceremony or marriage ceremony. The ceremony may be officiated either by a religious official, a government official or a captain of a ship.
Captain Jack Sparrow believed marriage to be a wager on who would fall out of love first. Prior to the War Against Piracy, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann were ready to be married until Lord Cutler Beckett interrupted their wedding day upon his arrival to arrest them. It wasn't until they fought in the titanic battle around the maelstrom were Will and Elizabeth married, presided by Captain Hector Barbossa.
Behind the scenes
- One cut line from Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was Jack Sparrow telling Elizabeth Swann he likes marriage, saying it's like a wager on who will fall out of love first. While the line can be found in a production draft and the film's junior novelization, it is unknown if they ever had it filmed.
