Mařenka loves Jenik and is unhappy because her parents want her to marry someone she has never met. Her parents use the marriage-broker Kecal who announces that he has found Vašek, a perfect groom who is the son of a wealthy landowner. The parents try to convince Mařenka to give up Jenik. On meeting Vašek, Mařenka pretends to be someone else and describes Mařenka as a treacherous deceiver. Vašek is easily fooled. After much confusion and negotiations, Vašek agrees not to marry Mařenka and now Jenik can marry his true love.
