But between all of us, we didn’t know she had a boyfriend until she announced that she was engaged.
Keeping boyfriends or girlfriends a secret until engagement, especially from their families, is common in Cambodia.

Many families arranged marriages while the betrothed individuals were still very young; friends made promises to each other that their children would marry.If a man were interested in marrying a girl he saw but to whom he had not spoken, his parents would arrange an engagement ceremony with the girl's parents. Marriage is still arranged but individuals often are consulted about the choice of their spouse, and rejecting the parents' arrangement is tolerated.
