The study deals with marriage patterns at the parish of the Church of St. Mary Below-the-Chain in the 17th and 18th centuries. The partners who came to the church to marry originated not only from the City of Prague but tended even to be people from other countries. The clientele was made up of craftsmen, officials from provincial and town offices, and the nobility who had residences in Malá Strana. Among partners, 60 % of them were marrying for the first time. From a seasonal perspective, the population of the parish tended to follow contemporary customs: most marriages took place in November and in February, the least in the March-April period and December (in connection with the church calendar). There was an interesting shift in the most popular wedding day away from Sunday - which until the 18th century had been the most frequent wedding day - to Tuesday instead, which during the 18th century then became very common.
