(Source: Index card file. Attributed to Jean Lorrah -- April 20, 1977) Householding and Oath of Firsts: group marriage composed of all the channels and Donors --- scrupulously honoring vows of faithfulness to the group, not to an individual --- with imprintation thrown in to complicate things.
Carlana plans to "be married" in the Fort Freedom chapel --- a simple ceremony with Abel Veritt presiding and a few friends to witness. Carlana and Del did apparently have sex before this, after they Killed in the Raid.
Fort Freedom is founded by Abel Veritt and a group of Simes who grew up out-Territory and dedicated to preserving as much of Gen culture as Simes possibly can, hence Fort Freedom's marriage customs are hybridized.
