it's an arranged marriage
lola : where's rajiv?
franco : haven't you heard? he's gone on a very important trip to india.
lola : you mean on business?
franco : oh no. he's gone to get married. it's all been arranged by his parents.
lola : arranged? you mean it's an arranged marriage? i didn't think that indians here had arranged marriages any more.
franco : they certainly do. apparently his bride-to-be is from a family his parents have known for years. they were first introduced last summer and got on very well together.
