In 1754, Lord Hardwicke enacted a marriage act in England, which said couples can’t marry without parental consent until the age of 21, whereas in neighbouring Scotland, couples could legally wed, just with two witnesses, irrespective of the age.

‘Handfasting’ became more popular, meaning ‘engaged to be married’
