Well, marry him.
But we don't know what "marry" is.
[the second council member takes a book. He and the council chief leaf through it until they find the page about marriage]

Ok, I admit to a guilty pleasure at 1)enjoying and 2) recommending this movie.
The plot is weak, the situation implausible and the secondary characters are weak. So why do I give this movie a 7/10?
Dan Aykroyd and Kim Basinger, who have some of the funniest lines in any movie.
They are both excellent as 'fish out of water' he as a nerdy social misfit and she as the space travelling investigator who has to find out how Dan Aykroyd's character was able to contact her planet from a primitive Earth.
It is a movie that definitely grows on you with repeated viewings.
