If you listen carefully while you wait you can hear cogs whirring inside her head as she thinks it over. The main stream of thought is "What's in it for me?"
It's called self-preservation. She has to think beyond the white dress, the 'something borrowed, something blue, something old and something new'.
That's the married life that has to be weighed against single existence. The options can be frightening for some - as with some men - and the thought of being 'tied to the kitchen sink' or 'hauling the hoover' isn't the most exciting prospect. Nor is being a baby machine.
In the case of arranged marriages things are different, you will appreciate. You maybe don't get jilted brides or grooms.
So when the whirring stops and a smile rises to her lips, be careful not to leap in. This is where the trick question comes:
"All right, what if..." (circumstances alter the rest of this question, so be on your toes). There isn't a set answer, it's ad libbing time. Any good at thinking on your knees?.
