text: The marriages of the Great Angs can be made in two ways. Either an Ang agrees (150) to his or his son's marriage with the daughter of another Ang or an Ang girl goes to another village without previous agreement with appropriate accompaniment, and there declares her intention of marrying an Ang's son.
