Medieval Europe was plunged into disputes, wars and quest for embezzlement. The main associate and governing body was at that time the church and the Pope. At his command, the Crusades were organized, the lands were distributed. The Pope was the main and  the most significant figure in the political arena of that time in Europe. In the XIV-XVI centuries, people, theologians and associates began to act actively, and they became the main organizers of the Reformation in Europe. Their actions led to the fact that the old traditions, which were forgotten and not properly executed, began to be respected subsequently and followed by all sections of the population, and the marriage began to be a widespread phenomenon that returned to Christian customs and to the implementation of church laws.
