wedding traditions explained
Imagine you are living in a day when your old man is in charge and arranged marriages are the status quo. You fall in love with a forbidden pauper biker dude. Dad’s not having it, so he threatens to withhold your dowry. "her friends marched on the house, each bringing a pot, a pan, a bowl, a blanket, and other items needed for housekeeping,” in order to help make up for the missing dowry. Her dad conceded because her aunts were loud and bossy...or something like that. Feminism, y’all.
