When Rasheed brings Laila a wedding band, she is horrified to learn that he purchased it by selling  Mariam's old band. Laila insists that she doesn't want a dress or any fuss but just wants to get  married as quickly as possible. Laila rushes the ceremony because she knows that the constant  nausea she feels is because she's pregnant; she knows if she and Rasheed do not consummate the  marriage soon, Rasheed will figure out that Tariq is the baby's father. While Laila had every intention  of fleeing Kabul prior to discovering her pregnancy, she knows the only way to support the child is to  marry Rasheed.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
