The origin of the phrase ‘Tying the knot’
Knots have a place in the folklore of many cultures and usually symbolize unbreakable pledges. Actual knots have been used in marriage ceremonies for some time and the tradition of trying the wrists of the bride and groom with twine continues today in marriages ceremonies in some cultures. The word ‘knot’ has been associated with marriage since at least the 13th century. The Legend of St. Katherine, circa 1225 used the Middle English ‘cnotte’, (knot) to mean ‘the tie or bond of wedlock; the marriage or wedding knot’.
