Desi Weddings & their Issues
Umer Fiaz Abbasi

I think the concept of dowry and spending millions on weddings got so concrete because of the fact that most of the weddings are idealized, planned and executed by the bride and groom’s families.

Instead of being an event(or series of events) to share the happiness, marriage is taken as serious business whose stake holders are the families and reputation is at risk. In this context, marriage becomes a deal with Bros and groom being the investment.

It is the sad reality of our cutler and what concerns me is that we have not played a positive part in changing this concept.
