Jewish Marriage Contracts

This post is a word for word (picture for picture really) rip off from the Retronaut.

The ketubah is the contract that Jewish law requires a groom to provide for his bride on their wedding day. Different Jewish communities adopted styles and even shapes for their ketubot that were characteristic of their localities.
