In many cultures, giving a dowry is a must. For certain cultures, it comes in the form of material things while for others, it is cash.
In China, a woman crashed her ex’s wedding in order to get him back. She was dressed in a white wedding dress and she knelt down in front of him while saying that she was wrong.
“We don’t want the 660,000 RMB (RM435,000) dowry anymore. Please come back to me, I was wrong. My mother agreed to take only 180,000 RMB (RM118,000) as dowry.”
It turns out that the exes were on the verge of marriage before breaking up, reported Sina. At that time, the woman’s mother wanted 660,000 RMB (RM435,000) as dowry and refused to budge or compromise.
Her daughter was very obedient and didn’t dare to speak up, so this situation made the man very frustrated as he did not have the money. In the end, they broke up due to the conflict.
Back to the current situation, she crashed his wedding in order to get him back by offering the “discount” in dowry but his heart is already with his new bride and he rejected her by pushing her away.
She was left to cry there while the wedding went on.
This is certainly a very sad love story and the netizens have something to say about that.
“How is it possible for the man to get married so fast? It is possible that he was 2-timing her so breaking up with him is good luck.”
“This kind of mother-in-law, when you become family, sure will suffer in the future, the man made the right decision.”
We agree with this one the most as it says that parents should not think of the dowry as a price tag to put on their child’s head.
What is most important is that they should make sure that their child is getting married to the right person who will treat them correctly.
As for the wedding and the rest of the dowry, gifts, etc., the parents should just let the couple plan it out according to their budget.
It doesn’t make sense if the couple has a lavish wedding and will need to suffer the consequences later on, right?
