U of Tennessee-Knoxville
Prof. Bonnie Duncan has a page of links to various aspects of Medieval Domestic Life, part of her frequently-linked Women Writers of the Middle Ages. The main difficulty with the Medieval Domestic Life page is that the links are not in a particular order; fortunately, the site is not excessively long, and so scrolling is not too arduous. Links include (but are not limited to): Marriage in the Middle Ages, Life in a Medieval Castle, Brewing History and Recipes, Medieval Feasts, Clothing, Manners, Childhood, Women and Sports in Medieval Times, Laws on Adultery, Domestic Trades, Games Played in Medieval London, The School of Trotula, and Medieval Village.
Added March 1999: Kirsti Thomas (with asssitance from B.J. Kuehl) provides a Medieval and Renaissance Wedding Information Page.

Added March 1999: This "Selected Sources: Sex and Gender" page contains links to information about Women's Roles, Men's Roles, Constructions of Sexuality and Gender, and Marriage--part of Paul Halsall's highly-praised and frequently-linked Internet Medieval Sourcebook.
