An English custom initiated in 1111 and lasting until late 18th century provided
That any married couple who swore they hadnt quarreled
For over a year, or had not at anytime wished themselves
"Single again", and could prove this to the satisfaction of a mock jury sometimes composed of six bachelors and six maidens, was entitled to the Dunmow Flitch, a side of bacon awarded at the church of Dunmow in Essex County.
