Marriage

Many peasant girls and boys marries somewhat around the age of 12. when they got married the boys were a few years older then them, by one or two. The more fortunate and rich girls got married after they got older. Most of the time parents chose the wedding day and plan for the child. But some other ones chose the planning themselves. Normal men like peasants or less fortunate men had one wife, while the kings had lots. when the two couples get married, they both have to sign and agreement. When the two couples get married. the wife ushually lets the husband let him controll her land as wellb as his. If the wife and the husband wanted to get a divorce, they could. But, it wasnt common. If for example the husband treated his wife in a bad way, the wife would turn to her family for help. After that she would ushually ask her husband to change his act. If this behaviour didnt change after that, divorce was an option. She would need a witness. After the wife was divorced, she had the right to take her children back and get married again. This was the simple way to get a divorce and get married in egypt.



Cooking


Cooking was done by using open fires or clay ovens which were weaker. Using this method of cooking, it had to start a hour or two so, it would be ready for the pharaoh. Most families that worked would have their meals later in the night. The type of food that they had was rice, Bamia (Orka and Meat Stew). Wood was very importent. They also bairly had any wood in that land. Yet they used wood for fires to cook. The types of way they would cook is baking, boil, stew, frie, grill, and roasting. They got this idea from what they found in tombs. they found jars, pots, pans, bowls, ladles, sieves, and whisks. These were also used to make and prepar food. Most normal or poor of the citizens used dishes made out of clay, while the rich and wealthy ones used dishes made out of bronze , silver , and gold if they were really rich. Beer was the most favored and commom drink in egypt. Bread was the main food for an egyptian to be on a diet. The way they made bread was very simple, they would get barley and left it to dry, after that they would bake it into loaves of bread.


When Buried

In ancient Egypt mummification was the key to the after life. This kept souls together and not lonley.
They believed that the first human came from the god Khum who created them from clay. They put important people in pyramids.They also beliveid when you die that you become another person. But they thought that they had to do a death ceremoney proporly because if they didn't something will go wrong. This could have been anything like, the soul wondering around helplessly or not being buriyng the body in the wrong place. This could have happened easly because of them being rushed. This can happen if there is a war or some disaters strikes. At the death ceromony they would put a curse if anyone would rob or disrespect the body they would be cursed for most of their life. This is why they buried the bodies pirimid so no one could accses the jelery on the bodies.
