        It seems that part of the traditional Uz Wedding ceremony consists of the husband-to-be slipping into his (ahem) "beloved"'s chambers and making off with something. This would be a beautifully Trollish way to help insure that prospective husbands aren't going to be too hopelessly dominated by their new wives. Shades of the "Bride-napping" tales someone posted some time ago.

        Sounds like an associated deity to me. };-}

        All tis is, of course, rash and unsupported supposition.
