The practice of ‘giving word of marriage’ survived in Castilian society after the regulation of the sacrament of Matrimony at the Council of Trent. Ecclesiastical and ordinary Royal Courts resolved situations in which one of the two involved refused to fulfil that promise. Through a lawyer’s autobiography, in a micro history exercise, we can see how relationships between unmarried people, forced the lifes of men and women at the time of getting married.
