Sashini reviewed all she knew about the young man in question. His reputation spoke of politeness, self-discipline and good habits; he had been working for 10 years; he was well-known by Sashini’s aunt. All of those qualities looked promising in a prospective husband. One thing, however, seemed problematic: This young man followed Christ. Sashini and her family did not. What would he think of their different religious views, and would he want a wedding and marry her anyway?
Finding a Groom
Sashini’s older sisters had already married, and now it was her turn. Poverty had prevented Sashini and her sisters from completing school, so now as a young woman, Sashini spent her days caring for the house and preparing the family’s meals. Her parents worried about her being alone all day while theyworked in thetea fields. A husband’s companionship was what she needed, they decided, so they set out to find a suitable match. In doing so, they found much more.
Sashini’s mother, Kenuli, took the lead in searching for a young man. She contacted one of her sisters, who told her about a Christian man named Radale. Kenuli’s own husband drank excessively and smoked, wasting their small income on his habits, so Kenuli prioritized finding a man for her daughter who rejected those temptations. Although she was wary that Radale didn’t share their faith, Kenuli decided to give him a chance because of his good reputation.
