Life for Ancient Egyptians
If you were born in a wealthy family you would have lots of servants and free time. If you were born in a in a poor family, it would be a different story. You would grow up working sometimes on something like a plantation. You would be treated almost like a slave. If you were a good worker you could be sold or even given freedom.
To go from the stage of babyhood to the next phase boys would wear a loincloth and girls would wear a dress. At the age of about 12, boys would wear sidelocks, which is a lock of hair on one side of the head. If a family member died, you would visit their tomb with food for their family members ka's. (Egyptians thought that when a child was born, it had another person with it, called a ka, which lives with a person all its life. When a person died, its ka would live on.)
You could decide who you wanted to marry, but elders were expected to introduce suitable men and women to each other. The couple would go to the temple to give offerings, so the gods would give them a blessed marriage. If a bride was treated badly by her husband, she could ask her family to go to a judge for help. The judge could then tell the husband to improve his behavior. One man was sentenced to hundreds of lashes if he didn't improve his treatment of his wife. Divorce was really simple. All they had to do was make a declaration in front of a witness, then they could remarry. The wife ordinarily got the children.
