Family Roles

The family roles in the 15th century are differing greatly from our family roles today.

Including young girls being married off to men when they are as young as 12. Almost all of these marriages were arranged. Their childhood ended before it began. Learning to bear children and learning how to run the home.

Boys were taught to fight, at 14 they became a squire, and at 21 they become a knight.

Many children of noble families weren't raised by their parents, but raised by other workers.

Children of unnoble families were instead of being married off and knighted but had to work at very young ages.

Overall the family roles were about the children growing up very fast and the parents not being very involved in their children's life.
