LOVE IS BLIND

MANY, MANY YEARS AGO AND PRESENTLY TODAY THERE IS A TYPE OF CUSTOM
EXISTING IN POLAND. WHENEVER A YOUNG GIRL OF MARRIAGEABLE AGE HAS A
DOWRY OF LAND FROM HER PARENTS (1 ACRE UP), SHE WILL HAVE NO TROUBLE
MARRYING. REGARDLESS IF SHE IS HOMELY, ILL MANNERED, ETC., SHE WILL
HAVE MANY SUITORS AT HER DOOR. A BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL GIRL WILL
PROBABLY BE A SPINSTER IF SHE HAS NO DOWRY OF LAND. LOVE IS NOT THE
BASIS OF THESE MARRIAGES.
