The Apocrypha Assessment: Tobit 10
While Tobias and his new wife and in-laws are enjoying the 2 week long wedding feast, his parents have no idea what is keeping him. Tobit wonders if something has gone wrong in retrieving the money. Anna jumps to the conclusion that her son must have died. Tobias, perhaps knowing what worrywarts his parents are, gets his in-laws to send him back home with his new wife. Raguel sends the dowry: half his wealth. He and Edna also bless the couple. And so Tobias and Sarah head back to the home of the distraught Tobit and Anna.
