    I also very highly recommend Dan Carlin's hardcore history podcasts. His 6 parter "Death Throes of the Republic" is still free on iTunes. About 13 hours of late republican Roman goodness.

    In a normal marriage the woman will move, in a matrilineal it is the man. Except if one of them is landed, then the other will move to their court regardless.
