In the past, the man who wanted to propose to a woman should have sent a group of people: his friends and some member of his family, in order to talk about his feelings and wishes, in short to represent his interest. However, now is when the most interesting part comes, because if the group of people would have met in their way a monk, a blind man or a pregnant woman it was a sign of bad luck for the upcoming marriage.
