Once in a tribal land, where people follow their violent traditions to the letter, no matter what, there were three couples. They were stranded on one side of a river, with one boat. The boat can bear a maximum weight of two people only, at a time. According to the tribal tradition, if a female is left without her husband but has other man/men near her, then the other men/man must eat her up (yes they are cannibals as well!).

The problem is to determine the steps after which all the three couples get to the other side of the river, safe and sound.
