The system of dowry is bad and a great social evil prevalent in Indian society. The unscrupulous person do not display moral or ethical principles. They allege that the bride’s parents failed to give the dowry promised by them at the time of negotiation of marriage.
Now-a-days, in the marriage market bridegrooms are auctioned. The rich parents want to marry their daughters to established men and professionals like doctors, engineers, professors, officers, etc. They willingly agree to give enough money and jewellery to their daughters as dowry. However, the poor parents can ill-afford to do this.
