In Search for a Bride

Daily Prompt: BYOB(ookworm)
Write the blurb for the book jacket of the book you’d write, if only you had the time and inclination.


A few years back I wanted to write a book about how my son got married. I still have that idea in my mind but it is on a back burner to this date. In societies like mine the mothers or sisters find brides for their sons or brothers.

There are some males who find their own mates but the majority leave this decision to their families. You may be astonished that in this day and age it happens, and there are bridegrooms who see their brides for the first time on their wedding night.

Believe me these marriages are successful. The parents are there to counsel their off springs every step of the way. Both set of parents smooth over the early marriage turbulance. They help them financially as well.

So here is the blurb for my book, “In Search for a Bride” .

This is a hilarious account of a mother who finds a bride for her only son. She is taken by her well meaning, (what I really mean: misguided, ineffectual, mistaken) friends to see prospective girls and their families. Sometimes the girl or her parents don’t know why Mrs R is favoring them with a visit, and sometimes she gets a surprise. Many a times she didn’t know where she was led by her friends who connived secretly with the girls’ parents. You will be riveted by this tale. You get a glimpse of life half way round the world.

Dream away.

  1. It does kind of blows me away that this “Tradition” still happens in many cultures. What ever happened to just “Love At Sight”??..LOL.. Actually, the elders have & family have much “Wisdom” in finding a match! *Catherine* 🙂 🙂


    1. Love happens too after marriage. The parents take care in choosing. Once they choose they do ask their children for the final say. If the children say no and point out someone of their liking the parents may agree if they don’t have any serious issues about it. All is well that ends well in the long run.
