Marriage. Marriage is what brings us together today. What happens when the newlyweds come home from the honeymoon and start living with each other. It's simultaneously a milestone, a building block for a family, a way to join two older families, a social institution, a public declaration and a very private affair. Many of these tropes are meant to play out over years; others are about the social clout that married status confers; others are about power and in/equality, such as who holds the purse strings.
