The commonest anthem in the world today is marriage.If a guy meets a lady,the next item is:'l would like to marry you'.But we should not forget that before either a woman or a man could proudly say that he or she is married, is when the dowry have been paid.But some cultures' exhobitant dowry is depriving their sons and daughters from getting wives from their own ethnic groups, instead they marry from other ethnic groups where their dowries are cheaper. In my culture,the dowry is 12 shinings but since we no longer get shillings, we now changed it to N120. This is the main pride price in my culture.HOW MUCH IS YOURS?

Thanks for your question.l'm of the Urhobo ethnic group from Delta state but presently in Yobe state.Well,there are other items,comprised of palm wine,alcohol, kola-nut, hat, shirt & wrappers & walking stick for D parents.Costing about N70,000.But we are very considerate,in a situation whereby the man says that he cannot afford all these items,then,we go into plea-bargain and the money will be reduced drastically to only those items which are mandatory. parents are very co-operative when it comes to dowry of their children,becus they know that it is a pride for them and their son or daughter in the public domain that a dowry has been paid in their family.These days it is a common thing to see parents who secretly help their son-inlaw to be to paid the dowry of their daughter to give respect to the family. We do not charge much on dowry because we believed that once,the woman dies,the corpse goes back home to the father's compound for burial.

Simple,just take a trip to Warri.There,girls are the cheapest commodity that you can think of.You can even do,I.O.U. That's you can take her on credit and pay the dowry later,when you have money,but let her parents know about it.Beside,they are very industrious ladies.They do not sit at home for only the husbands to work money for the up-keep of the house,but also join so that when one has nothing,the other supports the house.This is one of the blessings and unique attitude of our Urhobo,lsoko women from Delta state.I hope you are on your way to Warri now?I hope so.Goodluck.when you have brought her,then you have to send me two bottles of beer through my inbox. Take note that l'm preparing the way fore you.l'm your fore-runner.I love you!
