Sometimes a little act of fun or non-serious attitude can turn into serious consequences. The same happened to a young man recently in KSA. The young man was attending the engagement ceremony of his sister, while having fun with his friends; he made a bet that he can remarry any girl of his choice anytime. His friends dared him by pointing an old man, that he can’t and if he really can, should go out and ask for that old man to give him hand of his daughter. Boosting to his friends the man took the challenge and went out to win the bet asking the old man respectfully that he want him to marry his daughter with young man.
The old man was completely shocked by the proposal and could not say anything for a while. The young man continued to ask him as he wanted to win the bet at any cost. The old man did not reply him and approached the religious man to start proceeding of another marriage along with engagement ceremony. Out of shock and surprise, the young man started denying his proposal and went quiet straight telling him the reason why he placed his proposal for old man daughter. The old man did not bother about it and asked him to marry his daughter as he made the proposal himself. The young man remained stunned and found himself helpless for the proposal and ended in telling the old man that he has no intention to get married again; neither has he had money for dowry.
Nothing impacted old man and he kept on insisting that he has to marry his daughter now. He contented him by waiving the dowry demand which led no reason left for refusal of proposal further for young man. Finally he agreed to his words and married the young lady which started from a bet. This dramatic marriage was destined in heavens this way but the major role is being played by mahram of young lady. He did not waste even a single moment despite of his shock for such proposal of getting his daughter married. It also indicates the increasing rate of spinsterhood in KSA. The increasing ratio of unmarried aged women has made their Mahram worried about future of their daughters and sisters.
The old man in this case may have been worried for his daughter’s marriage and for this reason he did not let the single opportunity waste of marriage proposal for his young daughter. Increasing rate of divorces and spinsterhood is leading to adultery and other ethical problems in society. Rigid attitude of young generation, high dowry demands, imbalanced ratio of men and women demography and several other reasons have led to high divorce rate.
Due to increasing ratio of divorces, women have discouraged for getting married even after lapse of a reasonable time of their lives. Spinsterhood and relationship breakups are not healthy for prosperity of a developed community.
