संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

कन्या वरयते रुपं

कन्या वरयते रुपं माता वित्तं पिता श्रुतम्‌।
बान्धवाः कुलमिच्छन्ति मिष्टान्नम् इतरेजनाः॥
kanyā varayate rupaṁ mātā vittaṁ pitā śrutam |
bāndhavāḥ kulamicchanti miṣṭānnam itarejanāḥ ||
[What do people look for in a prospective bridegroom while making a match?]
The girl goes for the looks of the boy, the mother is more concerned about how much wealth he has acquired. The father wants his son-in-law to be well-educated, relatives want to ensure that the boy is from a good family while the rest of the people only look forward to the sweets served during the wedding!
