If he goes and serves his wife every day, his marriage will be successful. The obstacle coming my way will be removed. The next day the girl wakes up in the morning and goes to their house, does the cleaning, and comes back to her house. The woman living in that house is surprised to see who cleans the house before she wakes up and leaves. 

After a few days, the woman saw the Brahmin’s daughter doing this and asked who you were, then the girl told everything that the sage had told her. The lady was pleased with the girl’s honesty and service and blessed her with an early marriage. After some time, the woman’s husband died, but she did not give up and took 108 rounds of the Peepal tree in the courtyard and prayed to Lord Vishnu to bring back her husband’s life.
