The husband-and-wife were very popular in the early 1900's. People admired the style and grace of the couple, but most of all how they were able to express so much love and compassion for one another out on the dance floor (Encarta).

At a wedding the husband-and-wife after taking there vowels, will proceed with a reception to celebrate the rest of there lives together and one of the most important events of the reception is the first ballroom dance by the husband-and-wife.

For the ages of 20-50 years old, men and women go out to night clubs, social events, and parties. This is another way for a person to meet people and for them to be one on one with a suitor.
