According to Papa

This was the trick:
Last December, Wolfie signed a contract in which he promised to marry his beloved Constanze within three years from that date or else pay her three hundred gulden a year. Soon after their agreement, the two lovebirds were hounded by the most malicious gossip.

Frau Weber complained to anyone who would listen that the scandal would compromise her daughter’s reputation. Papa is now convinced that Wolfie was pushed into marriage by her skulduggery.

Perhaps, dear brother, you were propelled, not pushed? I can see that it could be so, but I'm afraid Papa won't have it any other way. N.
