For those who argued that sexual consummation is a necessary part of marriage, it was a matter of making a distinction between the betrothal and the actual marriage. The reason this definition became a concern was that if sexual intercourse was required to complete a marriage, then Jesus’ parents were never truly married.

... Family in Europe Why was kinship important in the historic past? Kinship was important in the historicpast because large kinship groups typically meant ties to the wealthy or aristocratic families. This was because wealthier families were typically better educated and thus more capable of reading and writing and keeping track of births and deaths in the family. This meant it was easier to keep track of distant relatives. At the same time, aristocratic families were highly prized connections because one could call on kinship ties for hospitality and aid.
