Note: For those 3 questions above, there are lots of answers in the book. You don’t have to write all those answers but choose 2~3 (at least) for each question OR you can write more than 2~3 if you can put those into 4 pages.
For question #2, you can write your own thought about the most attractive parts of peer marriage and its reasons.
