I really admire people who are true and honest to themselves and to others about their purpose and direction in life...and most, I admire for their abilities to communicate and let the other understand and accept for what they are, and make life mutually rewarding to both of them.

In life, it is give and take...it is not only in money you get paid, it is thru service, thru loyalty...and thru prayers... but above all, there is joy in giving when you give it with compassion.

Hence, in marriage, it is friendship with mutual understanding and it is how two persons nurture that common understanding and there is no way for the other to complain except when there is a hidden motive from the start...

I am quite disturbed when i was reading this thread... however, i will not stir buried stuff anymore. The hatchet has been buried and I would not waste my time in digging it again.

But I just hope that indeed, when I get to marry... i will not marry the money... but the man, for who he is and for the love we have together... money or no money. So best thing to do... I´d have to stabilise myself.... create a name and reputation of my own... and then marry. That way no one can say I married anyone for his money.
I'm gonna take my cross and carry it... heck! I'm even gonna dance while i'm doing it!

A dowry (also known as trousseau) is the money, goods, or estate that a woman brings to her husband in marriage.[1]

The opposite direction, property given to the bride by the groom, is called dower or mahr. Normally the bride would be entitled to her dowry in event of her widowhood, prior to the evolution of her dower rights; so common was this that the terms "dowry" and "dower" are sometimes confused.

The dowry should not be confused with a bride price, money or goods paid by the prospective groom to the bride's parents in exchange for her hand in marriage.

It should also be distinguished from sowry, which is the money obtained by a wife by filing false dowry case against the husband and his relatives.

Hi Ligiah and Lindy,

Sorry I was out for a while...hence, wasnt able to notice your post.

There are societies that practiced the culture of "dowry" in India & SouthEast countries, the women give the dowry to the groom; in Muslim countries, the men gives dowry to their brides.

In the past, when marriage is arranged and no courtship, one cannot expect to have that "love" between the couple.  But in the present days, with the emergence of communication technology (cellphones with videos/cameras) the manner of courtship has been enhanced even the culture of arranged marriage prevails.

Ergo, at the present time, a dowry is only an instrument to manifest a practiced tradition ( whether a dowry is small or big ) it symbolize their belief.

However, even in our modern times, this dowry is represented by the savings and wealth the bride and the groom had prepared to make their lives and marriage in order, successful and worry free without the interventions of families and outside parties...  more....

Back in college (that's way, way back time :D), I presented in my English or was it Social study subject about The Notion of Male Superiority.  I know this has nothing to do with this thread but bear me for a while. (Hadlok i eject ko dre na thread kay seryos matters ra ba ni ;D) Anyway, that study led me to get interested in reading materials about dowry stuff and one I remembered reading is a book about Bangladesh and its cultures.  I learned from that book that the women's family give dowry to the men for the reason that the women's family are transferring the responsibility of taking care of these women to the men. They had a set of prices daw according to the social status of the women.  Also, if in the family there's only one donkey or horse ba to, the men got to ride and the women walks.  So that goes back to the question, is there love involved in this kind of marriages? 

Hmmm, that really jolted me then to think that me as a woman is the responsibility of the men in my family! ;D

same thing is happening in Thailand. Parents ask for money from men when they wanted to marry thai girls. this is a sort of paying for the girl's obligation of helping out the family, so the guys should buy them out. one of my thai friends dislike this but she has no way out because it's tradition.

Really, Mari?  I didn't know that!  I thought Thailand is as "modern" as the Philippines.  Did you hear about that Indian lady who was about to get married then her would-be groom's family keep on asking for something so she cancelled the wedding and put an end to that kind of tradition.  She became famous especially to the feminists for standing up to her right as a woman not just to follow tradition that they thought was outrageous!
