Will and Elizabeth before their marriage aboard the Black Pearl.

"I apologize if I seem forward, but I must speak my mind. This promotion throws into sharp relief that which I have not yet achieved. A marriage to a fine woman. You have become a fine woman, Elizabeth."
James Norrington to Elizabeth Swann[src]

Marriage (also called matrimony or wedlock) was the official union of two individuals, usually a union of mutual love and attraction. Such a union was often formalized via a wedding ceremony or marriage ceremony. The ceremony may be officiated either by a religious official, a government official or a captain of a ship.


"Ummmm, darlin', this doesn't mean we're married now, or anything like that, does it?"
Jack Sparrow to Amenirdis, after she put a golden ring on his finger[src]

Captain Jack Sparrow believed marriage to be a wager on who would fall out of love first.[1] Prior to the War Against Piracy, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann were ready to be married until Lord Cutler Beckett interrupted their wedding day upon his arrival to arrest them.[2] It wasn't until they fought in the titanic battle around the maelstrom were Will and Elizabeth married, presided by Captain Hector Barbossa.[3]
