The Goddess gave them their consent and also warns them if they insult her, she will take away their consent and disowns them by destroying. When Sati was child, she adores the tales and bravery of SHIVA and grew up to womanhood. Then she desires to marry one and only SHIVA.
She even rejected all the proposals of other great kings brought by her father Daksha.

She only consumes a single leaf a day in the forest and offers her prayers. At last Lord Shiva was pleased and made her his bride. This marriage is not accepted by her father King Daksha.
