It is from this practice we still refer to marriage as "tying the knot".

Oathing Stone -- Just what better place to place the pledges of a lifetime and eternity than in the heart of a stone? The oathing stone is held by the bride and groom while their pledges are recited, then in some customs is tossed into a deep body of water to hold those pledges for evermore. Today that stone could be maintained as a remembrance of this big day.
