At other times girls are given to a divorcee, widower or a much older man. While parents play a leading role in arranging the marriage as they have other daughters to marry off, there are cases where quite sensible girls happily said “yes” to the $ sign and tied all hopes to the jobs they would be undertaking once settled abroad. Then there’s the tendency to show off hinting at a gradually developing superiority complex. But after sometime they are usually seen supporting their kids rather than their careers.
Hence everything boils down to the fact that while choosing a son-in-law the girl’s parents should look to the qualities that really make him capable of being a ‘son’. Qualities that are more humane and lasting like character, education, family background, lifestyle etc. and not just superficial values gauged on a monetary scale. With that being done sensibly and honestly, a girl can remain just as happy in Pakistan as in any foreign country! Even Afghanistan!
