The institution of marriage is important in many religions and cultures. Talmudic literature, basing on the Book of Genesis (Gen 1:28), explains one of the first commandments given to man by God, i.e. the commandment of marriage and starting a family. The basic source of this article is the Mishnah, especially its third order called Nashim (Women), which largely concentrates on women in the context of preparations for matrimony, as well as of fulfilment or its lack in marriage. Analysing the contents of particular tractates in this order allows to establish the following pattern: ways of matching marriages, ways of marrying a woman, betrothal period and wedding ceremony, a prenuptial agreement - ketubah, wife's obligations toward her husband, husband's obligations toward his wife, suspicions of adultery, divorce, man's need of marriage and, as a supplement, a description of female nature and character as described by Talmudic scholars.
