2: Marriage Inca woman typically married at the age of sixteen. If you were a man in the lower class you could only marry one wife. In some marriages the man and the woman would agree to try out being married to each other. After a few years, the woman could go home to her parents if she wished, and her husband could also send her home if he did not think it would work out. However, once the marriage was made final, they could only divorce if the woman was childless.
4: Social Classes | There were four different social classes in the Inca Empire. They are the Sapa, royalty, the nobles, and the ayllu. The Sapa was the most powerful person in Inca. While the royalty were the sons and close relatives to the Sapa. The nobles were other royal people that were not relatives, but were often close friends or people of importance. The ayllu included the rest of the people.
6: Daily Life Daily life for the Incas could be rough if you were one of the ayllu's because they did not have it easy. They had to be servants of the rich. If you were a mother in the ayllu's you had to cook, clean, and take care of the kids/school them. If you were a father in the allu's you had to work, hunt, and had to build a house for your family. If you were on of the rich then you had it easy. You had servants and you were treated like royalty.
