Her older brother was influenced by the Western culture and he was Mentally Convinced That his sister has all the Rights To Choose her man and to Decide her life, He Got scold so many time from the father when he tried to show sympathy with his young sister, he was in pain after he felt that his sister's life is getting slowly destroyed specially when she Turned 30 years old without getting married or having kids or even a job like the rest of the girls in her age in their Community..

Her Civilized Old Brother gathered all the men of the family members (uncles, Cousins) and they went to an interview with his father after he explained his point of view to all of them, and he got succeeded to convince all of the folks  

 The father and some of her Brothers were hard minded as usual During the interview Until the Old Brother warned them that if they will not approve the Marriage he will do The procedures of marriage without reference to them which means more Scandal and shame for the family and the father, Finally they
achieve their Goal when the father approved to let her go and marry her guy after he put some terms such as he Will not pay only one penny to cover the expenses of his daughter's marriage, not attending the wedding Party and also the girl shouldn't come back to visit the family's house as long as he is still alive
