Dowry Or Seed Money? People React To Startup Owner Asking Woman For Dowry

The practice of dowry is illegal in India but it still finds a way in many desi marriages. For instance, a man previously narrated the story of his US-educated, successful male friend asking for dowry, and how a bold bride from Bihar canceled her wedding after the groom’s family made dowry demands.

Now, another woman shared her experience of being asked for dowry in an arranged marriage set up. The suitor owned a startup of his own, which made her hilariously wonder if it was actually dowry or seed money he needed to raise for his business.

Here’s how people responded:

  1. A man questioned her asking that she could’ve been a “richer wife” if his startup worked. And she gave an apt response.

2. Others hilariously poked fun at the suitor.
