From Anglo-Norman, Old French mariage, from marier (to marry), from Latin maritare (to marry, literally “give a husband to”), from maritus (married man, husband), probably from Proto-Indo-European *mari-, perhaps a feminine stem of *mer-yo- (young man, young woman) (hence *mari-to- (given a wife)), if not somehow connected with *mas (male) (stem mar-).
