People during the 1800's generally married for money or personal gains instead of love. it's like the male and females roles were already established and there was no changing it. So they decided to ask the "matchmaker" of the village.
So our oldest daughter, Anne Glucose Smith, needs some help finding a future partner. Can you please help us out?
Of course, that would be my pleasure, but that would be 2 dollars.
There is no men in this town that needs to find a partner, I'm going to go to another town north to try and find a partner for you once it stops snowing 14 inches of thick snow.
Late 1800's, in Europe, Mr. and Mrs. Silva are worried that their oldest daughter would not find a future partner. She was going to turn 24 this winter and they decided to hire Mrs. Nzyme then.
Hello, Ms. Anne my name is Robert Galactose Williams, nice to meet you, would you like a place to sit and talk?
Then Mrs. Nzyme "matchmaker" goes through out the town to find a perfect mate for Ms. Smith.
Good evening, Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Anne and I really appreciate how much you have supported us and have hired Mrs. Nzyme to bring us together. We could also like to tell you that we are planning to have a wedding in 2 months.
Mrs. Nzyme then goes on a train north to find the perfect mate that she thinks FITS Ms. Smith's personality.
...... Allow me to present Mr. and Mrs. Lactose Williams!!!
After 3 days of travelling and searching, Mrs. Nzyme decided to introduce her relative to Ms. Smith.
Ms. Anne and Mr. Williams have been dating for over 2 years now and then wanted to marry each other. So, they had a talk with Anne's parents. Anne's parents agreed and then proceeded to plan the wedding.
Mrs. Nzyme has already been paid and haven't seen the Smiths and Robert in a long time, but she is now thrilled to attend their wedding.
