awaiting decision
When a couple gets married, and are living in a different house from the parents of the bride, a "hauling -home" takes place about a month after the parties have been married.
Usually a party or dance is given to celebrate the "hauling - home".
About sixty years ago when people would be getting married, the bridegroom would ride to the chapel, and the bride would ride in a carriage, but when they were married the bride got up behind her husband on the horse, and then both went to the bride's home for breakfast.
