In the days when a dowry meant a gift for a groom’s family, the dowry system evolved. It is also referred to as “payment for loss of a right to an inheritance.” This form of payment for loss of a right to inheritance is also called as “payment for an obligation.” In medieval times, the dowry was commonly known as the bridal-price. However, it came to be replaced with a more traditional form of payment สินสอด, often known today as the dowry.
In patriarchal societies the bride-price or dowry usually was not mentioned. In early Jewish tradition, the bride’s parents would name a monetary “dowry”shanti-dowry” to the family of the groom, after the wedding. In ancient times, the bride-price, or bride-price-money, was the family’s equivalent to a dowry.
In modern times, the word “dowry” has a different meaning and includes the amount of money that a groom’s family pays for the marriage contract, or “marriage contract.” The bride’s family in return agrees to pay the groom’s family, and sometimes the family of the groom, as well as the bride’s relatives, for their services at the wedding, and for their services in the life of the groom’s family following the marriage.
Dowry money in today’s society is often exchanged for gifts and/or favors. The practice of exchanging dowry is not as common as in days gone by. Many people believe that the exchange of dowry in many cultures is a way for families to pressure people into marrying. While there is no evidence that dowries force people into marriage, it is possible that there may be situations where families have used dowries as a means of getting people to marry.
Today, the dowry money is considered a legal agreement. Many countries have laws against the exchange of dowry. There are also some states in the U.K. and U.S. where the practice is tolerated. The bride-price is one way that people can legally receive dowry money, but it cannot be used to force a person into marriage. For example, in Egypt, the bride’s parents will agree to accept money as payment for her wedding if she promises to marry someone who is of her religion, and who is of high status. In Morocco, the mother of a bride will offer money to a groom if he promises to give a dowry to his bride. If the groom cannot meet those conditions, he may agree to get married anyway.
Many people rent a marriage dowry money so they can afford to have the wedding they want. Sometimes the family can afford it, but it is not always easy. A bride-price will cover part of the cost of a wedding, but it may be that the bride’s parents will not approve of it.
