Why forced marriages never work

"MY FLIGHT is tonight. Promise me that you'll take care of yourself when I am away". This is what Tina told Sammy in a dramatic escape from forced marriage.

If there is one major thing parents get wrong is that their preferences on marriage and their childrens' may never match. In this SK ENTERTAINMENT's masterpiece, many themes are floated including betrayal, poverty and loss. But none is as lingering as the scheme to marry off Tina to Alex simply because it is their parents' wish.

In my view, most of these relationships never work because the partners are pawns in somebody else's game. 

As Tina rightly tells her dad Mzee Baraza, he should not use her to reciprocate flavours Alex's father made to him earlier.

In contrast, Tina's heart is after Sammy,  son of a peasant. 

Rich families have a misplaced sense of entitlement everywhere. They ride roughshod over other people's lives especially the poor and the downtrodden.

The estranged couple hold their last meeting.  Tina wishes Alex, her ex, best. But not at the cost of her piece of mind.

Lastly to Sammy Kioko: Take care of yourself. I don't know when I'll return. My fight is tonight.

Where does that leave kina Tobi? His dance is not breaking even and the pressure of providing is hard on him. Story for Episode 10 going forward.
