Nobles ate very little fruit and vegetables and their food was highly spiced. Medicine was very poor, doctors knew very little. Leeches were often attached to let out blood.
Marriages were arranged by the parents of the bride and groom, girls as young as twelve would marry someone her parents thought were eligible. Men would be the dominant leader of the house. Marriages were arranged to involve land issues and create strategic bonds.
A vassal was bound in a contract with a Lord that allowed them to own land given to them by that lord. The vassal would have to conduct duties for the Lord whenever it was needed.
