the characters are “鎮宅之寶”, roughly means “the treasure of warding off evil influences from the dwelling”

according to feng shui, or, superstition; a house has an special position, that putting items in it, would guard the house from evil influences.

relates to maybe a marraige

well, it’s not 😸

it’s something similar to “厭勝”; imo.
