After several hundred years, in 496, pagan celebrations were canceled and terminated, as Pope Gelasius declared February 14 St. Valentine's Day - a holiday of love.

While the Roman army waged constant wars was on account of every soldier. Constantly needed capable, loyal, fiercely fought the soldiers, to think only of the glory of the empire. Claudius was adamant that it was such a man can only be a single, which is able to serve longer and better. And therefore he issued a decree banning the legionaries to marry.
