    daughter to marry this lunatic who has a contract on her head, whose background, culture and religion are totally at variance with hers; who is greedily waiting to get his hands on the dowry when he destroys her because he does not even recognize her; who is teaching and encouraging his household to destroy her and her household ? and indeed rejoices when they are attacked. And as papa pushes her towards her funeral, he thinks this is the greatest arrangement ever, because the wedding is a grand occasion for him to shine for one moment in time. Meanwhile, this daughter has to draw on all her wits to deal with this mad situation which she considers as suicidal. Oh dear! The things parents do to get a little fame and publicity. I guess this daughter is dispensable and useful only to the extent that papa thinks that this wedding will be his greatest achievement in life as he thinks it will allow him to be warmly received into that mad household and that may lead to better things for him in the future. Maybe papa has some of the madness of the lunatic groom.
