chinadaily.com.cn | Updated:2017-02-24 11:22Editors note: It is a Chinese tradition that the groom or his family gives a betrothal gift to the parents of the bride before marriage. This tradition still exists, especially in rural areas. But the rising bride prices are making it unaffordable for young people to get married. Should the rising bride prices be curbed? Forum readers share their opinions.manojitpal (India)Exactly… here in my country situation is completely opposite. Especially in rural areas a brides father needs to pay heavy amount of dowry to grooms family for marriage. More established the groom is higher the amount. Though in urban areas the trend is not like that. But in cases grooms neednt require to pay anything.SHI YU/CHINA DAILYPrevious Page1 2 3 4 5 6 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 3 4 5 6 Next PageRelated StoriesCurbing the trend of rising bride priceA second-generation rich share bride price onlineJilted bride refunds a quarter of her bride priceTaking love to new heights with special cliffside wedding photoWedding celebrationLifestyle: Childhood friends recreate wedding photoTake two: Couple recreates childhood wedding photoFuzhou promotes traditional wedding ceremoniesCartoonsUS military spendingTHAADHappy Womens DayChina-ROK relationsTrade protectionismUnwanted giftMost Viewed in 24 HoursFroum trendsShould college students be encouraged to start businesses before graduation?Are Tsinghuas admissions standards preferential?ColumnistsTime for a change to one-size-fits-all retirement policyWestern media expose themselves by hyping Chinas defense budgetForumFeatured ContributorsTransit agreements could be key to Belt & Road successChinas new Silk Roads can change geopolitical historyChina Daily Bureau ChiefsChongqing and Chengdu City Cluster on faster trackXi-Ma meeting brings historic opportunitiesStar BloggersHumanity in the eyes of an orphanLooking for true meaning, rather than photo opsBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
