“Betrothed. Among the Jews, marriage vows were said at the betrothal, and required divorce to end them. Custom decreed an interval, usually a year, before the bride should take residence in her husband’s house and physical union be consummated.” [The Wycliffe Bible Commentary, Matt. 1:18, 1962 by Moody Press)
