Bundling, or tarrying, is the traditional practice of wrapping one person in a bed accompanied by another, usually as a part of courting behavior.The tradition is thought to have originated either in the Netherlands or in the British Isles and later became common in colonial United States, It is possible the precedent for bundling came from the biblical story of Ruth and Boaz, in which Ruth, a young widow, and Boaz, an older wealthy landowner, spend a night together in a grain storage room while not touching; the pair later get married.Occasionally a bundling board or bundling sack was placed between the boy and girl to discourage sexual conduct. By the 20th century, bundling seems to have disappeared almost everywhere, with only isolated mentions of the practice amongst the Amish in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
