@DeadlyNightshade:  bride price are NO LONGER presented in money form. Instead, the families exchange items that represent things that they each want for the new union. For example, a family album and tree to represent the acceptance of their family into yours. An old clock to show that they believe the marriage will stand the test of time. Etc. It’s all symbolic.


OP, I think you should forget about the money all together… and try to uphold the tradition this way. It’s a lot less insulting to both sides of the family.

@starrynight:  Not sure the point of your post. Clearly my opinion was stated and that was the end of that. You can back off now.

I actually kind of like the idea of a gift exchange of something significant. It would be a nice way to bring both families together.
