Marriage

“Bilqueece was going away now, and they had no claim over her, no right to call her their own. She would do the bidding of others, behave and act as they would like her to do. Even if they asked her not to see her brother and father, she would have to yield and they would be able to do nothing. But God’s will be done, they consoled themselves: The work of the world must be done, and Nature must fulfill herself. Their fathers had brought other people’s daughters; they had done the same; so were others doing with their daughter. “(126)
