Marriage branch is known in certain South Slavic areas: in the eastern part of the Pannonian plain, in eastern Serbia, in parts of Bulgaria and Macedonia and in southern Dalmatia with Konavli. Isolated, it appears in western Slavonia, in north and north-western Croatia, in Lika, Bosnia and among Bunjevci in the surroundings of Budapest in Hungary. An analysis of the marriage branch, of its form and function, points on one side to common elements in various South Slavic areas, and on the other to certain regional characteristics. The analysis shows that the origin of the marriage branch should be the same for some South Slavic groups. That hypothesis can be a starting point for a research into its origin in wider Slavic and even Indoeuropean context.
