A lot of white peoples who don’t understand other people’s cultures are busy judging and making fun of it. Try to ask questions in order to understand; stop being a narcissist and myopic I’m your life. Perhaps we should bring back the dowry. Paid to the groom’s father to compensate him for losing a son but gaining a liability in the form of a daughter in law. The cash was then usually stashed because, in the event of the husband’s death, the father in law became liable for his daughter in law’s upkeep. Widows, for this reason, became sought after. Nowadays, we could use the dowry to pay off the bride when she decides to divorce. After a year or two. Bottom line: don’t accuse other cultures of not valuing women and then moaning that brides are actually valuable, unlike the above.
