The proposal had initially come for her sister, but she gets chosen by the groom owing to her maturity.

With time passing by, her sister falls in love with an unsuitable character who is merely using her. In spite of her warnings, her sister gets involved with him and lands into trouble. At her in-laws’ place, her husband’s aunt comes to stay with them and tries her best to break up their marriage.
Her aunt tries to do this since she wanted her nephew to marry a girl of her choosing but he didn’t. It is also revealed that her husband had gotten married to before her. People thought that he had killed her since she wished to marry his elder brother. But in reality, it was his aunt who had planned and carried out the murder while pinning her nephew for the crime.
