Well you should be happy that you’re worth a Ferrari to someone. But still yea your life sucks if your dad sold you off for a car.
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. 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.
I think you meant dower? A dowry is what the bride’s family gives the groom. Unless your dad is trying to send you away in style?
So your father is giving the creepy boy a Ferrari to marry you? Because that's how a dowry works.
