The prize? A side of bacon.
AFP, Jeff Dotts and Erin Albers of Nashville, Tennessee, were one of four couples (and the only Americans) who brought home the bacon this weekend literally. A bizarre ritual, dating back to the 12th century, in which the couple who can prove to a mock-court that they have the happiest marriage took place in England over the weekend. The prize? A flitch, or a half a pig.According to
The Dunmow Flitch Trials, which are held every four years in Essex, feature a judge and jury who hear each couple tell the story of their marriage, including how they met and the proposal.
