About 6 percent are Christians, who are indistinguishable in other respects from the Muslims.Most of the Christians belong to the Coptic Orthodox Church, the historic church of Egypt, but minorities within the minority are Catholic or Protestant, or derive from the churches of the Levant (Maronite, Greek Orthodox, Greek Catholic).Weddings in Ptolemaic Egypt were often accompanied by very elaborate parties, but there is nary a word from the Pharaonic period about a marriage ceremony.
Athenian men evinced little respect or affection for women and delayed marriage until well into their thirties, but most Egyptian men were eager to follow the advice of the wisdom literature urging them to take a wife while still young so they could found a household and raise a family.
You may not realize, but the honorable commitment to each other in marriage is actually a tradition that originated in Egypt. Ancient Egyptians considered married as a sacred event in their lives.
The first time a relationship was given a legal name was in ancient Egypt.
Traditionally, women would remain in the back of the house and not come into the living room if someone who was not a close friend or family visited, although this is less common now.
It is, however, considered inappropriate for a woman and man who are not married or related to be alone together.
