Get married arranged?
Totally by family and friends.

Beautiful, educated, homey, smart and cultured
In an apartment surrounded by people
Totally unknown and foreign to her.

Tries to find friend

Through rudeness and suspicion,
Quarrel and abuse
Worries and deception.

Surrendering to friends and in-laws
The bride gets pregnant!
Making everybody happy
Ending all worries for the groom and family!
And ensuring guaranteed
