This series is based on the official teachings of the religion, not what individuals might choose to do. At all. As in, no hand-holding, no hugging, nothing. At an Orthodox wedding men and women are separated and do not dance together. Both the man and the woman are expected to have sex for the first time on their wedding day.

Seven steps to symbolise the seven days of creation lead them into what is essentially the mikvah.
