It is not known since when “getting married” as a custom in Mariovo has been used, but it remained after the liberation until the Mariovo villages were not left by their inhabitants although in rare cases.

All the stages of “getting married” are described in this detailed work: Choosing the marriage-broker and his first visit to the girl’s parents; his come-back to the senders; his visit to the family of the chosen girl again; bringing the “raun” and earring the bunch of basil, the apple with golden coin in it-“a greeting” for the new relatives in-law.
