Market Relations  

A Technology that has a positive effect on your expenses on the Marketplace. Each level reduces by 2% the basic trade commission of 40%.

Market tolerance  

A Marketplace feature. Allows the user to set manually (Via Marketplace menu >> Settings tab) the difference between the prices of the potentially bought offer and the current one on sale without any warning window about price change popping up. This difference can go from 1% to 50% or can even be set to buy any offer regardless the price. The higher is the market tolerance percentage, the bigger the chance to purchase a more expensive offer.

Example: If the current lowest price for iron is 2 and your market tolerance is set to 10% by default, then you will be buying iron uninterruptedly at price up to 2.2 gold without being warned by the system for any change in price. If you set the tolerance to 1%, when iron's price gets above 2.02 gold while you are still buying, the system will inform you right away.

Marketplace Offer

If the offer expires without anyone buying it, the resources are returned to the owner in the province it was published from.

Marriage

Nobles can only marry the members of the Imperial family and cannot be sent to other players with proposal for dynasty marriage. Unmarried members of the "Other relatives" category can only be sent abroad unless they appear again in the family tree due to the ascending of a new Emperor on the throne.
All Great people can only marry once and remain married for life. Divorce is not possible. When their spouse dies they become widow/er and cannot remarry.

Marriage Candidates  

Unmarried members of the Imperial family and members of the category "Other relatives" can be sent out to other Empires with an invitation for signing a dynasty peace. The proposal is valid for 24 hours and it may be accepted, rejected or just ignored.
