Zalanthan marriages?

I was just curious how marriages were reguarded in Zalanthas? I've been playing for a while, and never really come across them. Are they just an "Oh, I love you, and you love me, you're my wife now." type of thing? Or is it more of a "nobles only" type of deal? More or less, is a dirt poor commoner ever going to get down on one knee, and ask another dirt poor commoner to marry him or her?

(most) Commoners don't marry.

In Zalanthas, marriage is a contractual obligation between powerful entities. They're political in nature, for the purpose of sealing a deal. Noble Houses and Merchant Houses are the typical institutions you'll find arranging marriages.

At the opera
Raging voices in my mind
Rise above the orchestra
Like a crescendo of gratitude
