Choosing a day in the Week

Let it not be said that I don’t research when it comes to writing my books! When you’re talking about getting married on a certain day of the week in 1863, a calendar is important!  I found one!

What day of the week did I choose for the first marriage in this lengthy saga? According to a Victorian Wedding article, a popular rhyme went like this:

Marry on Monday for health,
Tuesday for wealth,
Wednesday the best day of all,
Thursday for crosses,
Friday for losses, and
Saturday for no luck at all.

I noticed that Sunday wasn’t in the rhyme, but strangely enough, my second great uncle married on a Sunday.  Hmm…I’m confused.
