Olli Kantola says to Peter Metcalfe:

        Ernalda handles the Heortling All that get married -- surely 10-15% of the Heortling population never get married (bad luck, geases, Humakt worship, exclusive homoaffectionalism (there's a mouthful), whatever). Some temporary relations are probably blessed by other subcults -- Niskis might be called upon to seal a Year-Marriage, I suppose (although that seems long term and official for Him). I can't imagine a culture needing multiple marriage gods.
