"A long, long time ago, in a distant and mysterious country was a very rich and powerful landowner who sent his son (his principal heir) to find a wife from among the women of the tribe of their father the Patriarch, which lived in a neighboring country.
Young began the long journey, crossing valleys and mountains around the country. He walked for many days to fulfill the mandate of his father. Finally, he exhausted from walking, crossed the Great River, which divided their country of their ancestors.
He walked until reaching a large meadow saw three large herds of sheep, the shepherds then asked if they knew of his father's family still living in that region. They replied that if, as the youngest daughter of the man was the senior pastor of the three herds. When the youth saw the shepherdess, he said they were relatives and kissed her. At that moment his heart burst with love, because I knew she was the woman of his life.
Finally the young man met with the family of Pastor, quickly placed him and gave him a place in the house. A month of being young living and working there, the Patriarch asked that he intended to wage for their work. The young man said without hesitation: "I will serve you seven years for your younger daughter, to be my wife"
