    Does dowry system is the "Dream Killer" of girls?

    Because of dowry system Our families treated us as a liability.Now a days marriage become a "financial transaction" in our society.Marriage brokers demand their fees from the groom side according to the dowry that the groom's family getting from the bride side. This system making girls' life miserable.Some parents stop their girls' studies because if they study high they have to look for a equally qualified groom who will ask high dowry. So they stop their girls' studies and kill their dreams.

    What is is your thought about this dowry system?

    Hi bhavya,

    Dowry system is "dream killer" is truth in today.more and more marriages are decided based on dowry.as a business dealings.thus ,specifically middle class family's women are involved on that problems.

    I don't know why dowry are expected from women?most of women are presected by her husband or husband's family members.

    In my point of view dowry system must abolish from our society.

    Just as you've mentioned above Dowry system represents marriage as a financial transaction between the bride and the groom and the middleman (a marriage broker)
    I have seen so many unmarried girls because of this Dowry system , where as they are unable to dowry the other side.

    Between, You have any tips on how to abolish this system?

    yeah I think only our younger generation can abolish this culture from our society. Our generation should stop asking dowry when they get married.
