Only 3 Countries In The World Where Wife's Family Pay Dowry To Husband's Family

When two people marry, they become one individual. They discussed and decided to follow all of their society's established rites and rules. Marriage between two people of the same gender is similarly uncommon due to cultural censure, but it does happen.

The term "dowries" is used to describe two types of gifts. A "dowry" is a present given to the bride's family by the groom or his family to show their appreciation for their son marrying their daughter. In some societies, primarily in Asia and Australia, and in a few isolated communities in Africa, women pay the groom's price (dowry) of the men they want to marry, but not all of them.

In several countries, women are required to pay their husbands' dowries to marry them. We'll look at a few of these countries to see why these cultures are tolerated, even if it may seem unusual to those of different cultures to tolerate them.

The Three Countries Where Women Pay Dowries To Marry Their Husbands Are Listed Below;


For starters, India is one of the places where this tradition has been practiced for a long time. Over the years, they've passed it down to their children. When a lady is ready to marry her fiance, her parents may ask for a dowry, such as a cow or a small car.


Because the groom's fee is regarded as a vital component of their marriage's success, the bride is expected to pay it. It also assists the woman in matching her personality to that of her husband.


Things aren't always the same in Sri Lanka. In certain cultures, a woman informs her parents of her desire to marry when she meets a potential mate. As soon as the bride's parents and the groom's family agree on a wedding date, the bride's parents give a dowry to the groom's family.
