The theme here would be family and religion; the impotance of religion in life........... or if you want to stay away from the religion aspect, simply go with the culture of the Jewish people you're reading about here. I personally don't think you can separate the two, but some people might try.

What we see in this chpater is the beginning of a family, and what that family had to endure. Marriage was arranged/ not a choice, money exchanged hands/ a dowey if you will, and the marriage contract is dictated by Jewish law. So kosher, written above and attached to the text is an apt theme.
