The article discusses the terms referring to marriage which are shared by Bulgarian and Rumanian. Seven different patterns are established under which the terms occurring in the dialects of the two languages are subsumed. The main goals are to clarify the motivation of each pattern, the spread of the terms, the existing synonymy, and the chronology. Special attention is paid to the origin of the patterns and the individual terms.
