After being together for time, Big Liam didn't pay the dowry like he promised. even though Kelvin didn't want the money, Ellen forced him to ask Liam for it to prove he wasn't a coward. After asking him for too long a time, Liam got tired of it so he picked a fight with Kelvin at the market, which led to a fight and some tension between the couple.
The next day, Kelvin took Ellen back to her brother, who in exchange gave Kelvin his 200 pounds but he threw it in the firebox. Liam got mad and the two angry brother-in-laws started throwing punches. Kelvin won both the fight and his wife back.
