Ruth Vicissitudes

Still in our modern contemporary society, some parents are still left with the ultimate decision to choose a partner they deem is right for their children especially daughters against their preference. Is it right for parents to continue to meddle in the decisions of their children who are ripe for marriage? In this story, it focuses on a final year University student Ruth, the compromises she took, the problems  and the unhappiness that surrounded her prior to her marriage to a wealthy man, a man she utterly disliked. Can she still make her marriage work despite the negativity  in her mind? Or would it end up been a disaster?
