A young man finds the perfect girl from his small village for marriage.
When the young man asks for his father’s blessing, the father tells the young man “Son, I cannot bless your marriage. I did a lot of fooling around in my youth, and the girl you want to marry is in fact your half-sister.”
The young man devastated but still wanting to get married suggests the next door neighbor’s daughter.
The father tells him with an apologetic tone that she is also his half-sister.
The young man storms out with tears in his eyes and finds his mother outside in the garden. She asks him what’s wrong and he tells her the story.
In a motherly soft voice she tells him, “Son, go ahead and marry any girl you want, that man is not your father.”
