The Eastern Orthodox marriage ceremony includes the "crowning" of the couple. They are told their role is to be the rulers of their household, but also that these are crowns of martyrdom. (The crown in Byzantine iconography indicates the person died for Christ. "Martyria" means witness; they witnesses their commitment to Christ) The sacrificial aspect of marriage is emphasized in the words of the rite.
