3. Parents searching for an ideal partner

Shazia and Shabana were in their mid-twenties and their mother was often worried about their wedding. The only conversation that took place in the house was about their wedding proposals. Their mother wanted them to get married in a rich house where their husband would be well educated. She constantly asked people where they found their ideal partners so she could set her daughters up too.

4. Financial crisis

Sohail had to often look into his finances as he was the only earning member in his family. His younger sister Sobia was fond of baking and she often needed money to bring her ingredients.
