Today, the creepy guy at school that won't take "no" for an answer came over with his parents to talk about marriage. My dad knows about this creep and said he'd cast them out, but things didn't turn out as I hoped. Apparently, part of the dowry is a Ferrari. FML

No, it shouldn’t make her happy. She’s being treated like an object to be bought by a creep. It’s like telling women catcalling is a compliment. It’s fucking not.

Hew dad is selling her off “with” a car, not “for” a car. Dowry assuemes that a girl is a burden, and for a father has to pay the groom to transfer the burden of his daughter on to the groom.


FYL, OP. I fervently hope that the wedding does not go through.

If you people would stop assuming you know everything and perhaps look at her country of origin and read a little bit: you would actually learn something, from the Wikipedia on Philippines Courtship.

The dowry, as a norm in the Philippines, is provided by the groom's family.[4] For the Filipino people, marriage is a union of two families, not just of two persons. Therefore, marrying well "enhances the good name" of both families.

There are already several comments explaining how dowry works in the Philippines. You should read before you post!
