It is from this custom we still describe marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better area to put the assurances of a life time and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their vows are recited, after that in some traditions is thrown into a deep body of water to hold those promises for evermore. Today that stone might be maintained as a remembrance of this special day.
