I have just started learning Japanese, so if it's possible, please explain fully and clearly with the knowledge that I am a complete beginner in regards to Japanese grammar and vocabulary.

At this point, all I know is the hiragana, katakana, and various kanji (I know Mandarin). However, Japanese grammar is so different compared to English and Mandarin.

I would greatly appreciate an explanation of the Japanese text:

それで? いつになれば俺のお嫁さんになってくれる?

This was a dialogue in a game (I believe), however I don't know the overall context of this text. The text was a bit blurry, so I'm not sure if it was ば or ぱ* it is ば.

Please correct my attempt at translation. To my understanding, in English it is something like:

And so? When to become my bride... do for me/let me have?

(And the "I" is a male?) I believe he is talking to a female.

Is it about a man asking a woman to be his bride? Or something similar? I'm very confused.

Then, when do you become of my bride? (I'm not good at English -:) –  noel_lapin Apr 13 at 4:45
あーん?いつ俺の嫁になる? is a more rude, manly version. –  noel_lapin Apr 13 at 5:22
Maybe you should try something more suitable for a beginner than this. –  非回答者 Apr 13 at 8:05

1 Answer 1

それで -- Then,/So,/And,...
いつになれば --> いつになったら -- When, How long do I have to wait till...
俺のお嫁さん -- my bride
に -- case particle
なってくれる? -- verb なる(become) + conjunctive particle て + subsidiary verb くれる(will you do me the favor of...?)
