Hi Persephone. Haha, you did mention your name in one of your previous threads - the promo one I think - but I forgot. :3 Anyways, Im Kiara.
I think whatever is shown in this show is true to some extent. While the grooms family believe the have the upperhand in the alliance as the brides family is too preoccupied in arranging means to fulfill their atrocious demands and battle the fear that theyre daughter is gonna face social doom if and if the alliance is broken. They fail to realise that their daughter is better off socially ruined rather than being married into a family of obnoxious wannabes who care about nothing but money and the monetary value of the alliance. It takes two to tango, as you see it isnt just the in laws fault who act so ... grr, but also Lajjos mother who in all her rights fears Lajjos future if the alliance is broken, not caring that shes sacrificing her daughter in the name of society.
Not to boast but I come from a well off family, and in this short life of mine which lasts somewhere around 2 decades I have come across such cases, where they may involve "the help" or the people whose children my parents fund. Somewhere around the age of 18, my group of friends and I along with my boyfriend Nikhil (coincidence, IK :3) started, but they never did want the help.
I remeber sharing with my IF friends last year on of the incidents we dealt with wherein this girl from a not so well off family decided to marry a guy from the "upper classes", yeah the branded cars driving, mansion owning, player kind of a guy where the girls friends and even we tried to tell her that he was fooling around with her. She claimed that we were jealous of her good fortune. And do you know what happened - he marries her and then annuls the marriage stating that she cheated on him. When the truth was that she adored him, literally worshipped the floor he walked on. And she was left pregnant and jilted.
Im sorry if that was out of topic, but such cases do exist. Sorry for the typos, my fones acting like a first class bi*ch.
