Francisco was going home; he had failed to buy a wife. His half-brother, born out of wedlock, would inherit the ranch that had belonged to his mothers' people for over 100 years. His father had adopted Carlos, making him able to inherit. His father then stipulated in his will that the one who married first would inherit everything. The other would get nothing. Francisco had left the ranch hoping to bring back a wife, and save the ranch. If they never consummated the marriage they could divorce after the ranch was in his name, this was his thinking when he went on this trip. He had failed, in three days the ranch would be Carlos's, he was getting married. I can't even buy a wife, he thought. Suddenly his headlights struck a man with a knife, who ran. A girl was laying naked in the ditch. As he tried to help her he was taken by her beauty. She said he had saved her life; how could she ever repay him. He didn't want any payment, then he thought, I need a wife. "The only thing I need is a wife; will you marry me?" Could they keep their marriage in name only?
