"history of marriage started with lesbian marriage."
The first marriages were public religious ceremonies commemorating the union of the Egyptian Goddesses Bast and Sekhmet in the creation myth of the Cosmic Orgasm. The high priestess of Bast and the high priestess of Sekhmet took on the roles of their respective Goddesses for the public festivities.
This first marriage ceremony was widely popular. Other temples in ancient Egypt copied the idea, with grand public marriage ceremonies for their favoried deities (most commonly male/female couples).
Over time these religious reactments became the model for religious ceremonies marking the marriages of important leaders. Nomarchs (the women elected to lead the pre-Pharaonic Nomes, or states, of ancient Egypt) had weddings. With the rise of Pharaohs, the wedding ceremonies passed from the Nomarchs to the Pharaohs and their familes and other important government officials. Remember that the religion and goverment were officially combined under the rule of the Pharaohs.
Eventually wedding ceremony spread from a religious celebration of divine unions to a religious celebration of human unions sanctified by the divine.
This was the origin of marriage and weddings.
And the first version was specifically lesbian.
While heterosexual marriage was the most common form in ancient Egypt, gay and lesbian marriages continued until outlawed by Christians.
