Marriage is roughly defined as the legal union between two beings, who live in an exclusive relationship with one another. Marriage is widely practiced throughout the galaxy among numerous alien races, and there are two main categories; marriages for love(the result of a romance) and marriages of convenience (done for political, economic, and social ones). Marriages for love are almost unheard of within Hutt society, due to its unyielding obsession with power and status. No matter what feelings Hutt's may feel for each other, it is certain that no concept of equality will be entertained. Hutt husbands have exclusive right to the property and titles of not just his own family, but that of his spouse. Dowries are not uncommon. The husband also reserves the right to unilaterally divorce his wife whenever it please him. Although a male Hutt may marry a non-Hutt female, it is strictly forbidden for a Hutt female to marry a non-Hutt male.

A Hutt wedding is performed thus; the groom takes his bride to Nal Hutta, the home planet of the Hutt race. They are brought to a shrine to pay respects to the groom's ancestors and after the rites are finished, the bride receives the unique tattoo of her husband's clan. The couple are then to move to a local swamp and consummate their relationship through a 6-hour session of sex.

While he had her in captivity, Jabba often entertained the idea of taking Leia as his bride. Marrying Leia would give him access to all of the destroyed Alderaan's client worlds and therefore all the wealth within them. Plus the sick satisfaction he would get from tying her even tighter to him with the bond of marriage . . . and the disgust and sadness she would feel as she realized the irony: a Princess, enslaved to a Hutt, forced into wedlock, made to wear a revealing set of lingerie, even trashier than her gold bikini, and taken to Nal Hutta.

She would then be forced to worship Jabba's ancestors at the shrine, wearing nothing but a translucent lacy bra and panties set with garter stockings. Leia would then be forcibly tattooed, on small of her back just above her buttocks, with Jabba's clan insignia, and made to walk half-naked towards the swamp. Jabba would be waiting for her in the sludgy swamplands, beckoning the princess towards him. Leia would have had no chance to resist and would be forced into his embrace in the sticky swamp. Jabba would then strip her of her sexy lingerie and have sex with her in the swamp, claiming her as his bride and mixing her juices into the swamp as she was raped for hours upon hours.

Fortunately, this horrid vision never came to pass. Leia and Han married each other shortly after they helped defeat Jabba the Hutt, with Luke serving as the best man and C3P0 and R2D2 playing the role of the flower girls. Leia wore the golden bikini for Han and made love to him in a loving, consensual way that both husband and wife enjoyed greatly. The couple had three beautiful children together and lived happily for the rest of their days.
