Dowry system means a payment of cash or expensive gifts from the bride’s family to the husband family upon marriage.The dowry system is so deeply rooted in South Asian countries,The reason many parents don't want to have daughters is because of the dowry they will have to shell excuse at her ceremony, and the pressure they run through due to nevermore ending demands from her in-laws. When demands for dowry are not engaged, the wife is directed to torture, and oftentimes even killed.In our society, people believe their daughters will get married finally, and their man will support them, so why force them so hard?Instead of giving her dowry present your daughter with a solid education, and inspire her to continue a career of her decision is the best dowry any parent can ever give their daughter.
