- Affection is more potent than death.
- Love is blind.
- Your darling is your darling even though he is a black slave.
- The pretty one is beloved by God and people.
- Look for a husband for your daughter before you look for a bride for your son.
- He who marries the ugly person (lit. the monkey) for his wealth, the wealth goes away and the ugly person remains as he is.
- Your heart is your guide.
- The mare behaves according to its rider.
- Follow the road even though it winds; and marry your cousin even though she is a spinster.
- The cousin forces (the bride) down from the mare.
- The man collects and the woman builds.
- Worrying about daughters continues till death even though they are married brides.
- Two thirds of the boy take after his maternal uncle.
- He who has begotten children has not died.
- Marry the girls whose paternal aunts are well known for their goodness, (lit. from the paternal aunts1 breasts.)
- Turn the jar upside down, and the girl takes after her mother.
- He who loves a slave will adore him, and he who loves a stone will transport it.
- From the mud of your country smear your cheeks, i.e. marry from the girls of your country.
- The darnel of your country is better than the wheat of foreigners, i.e. marry a girl of your country rather than a foreigner.
