The citizens yearned for the prosperity of the bygone Ancient Austine Empire, which led to them holding old artifacts and traditions in high regard. One such example was the extravagant long dresses their noblewomen wore in banquets. Admittedly, their simplified dance steps were no longer able to make the dresses flutter as gracefully as they once did, but it still remained one of the mainstream fashion wear over the last few centuries.
The same applied to male-female relationships too.
Those who were well-versed in Austine traditions would know the significance of a man and a woman sharing a bed. It was a solemn vow of devotion, a promise to marry the other party and no one else.
