What Is The Modern Definition Of Bride Price?

You are viewing content from Nigeria Info, Let's Talk! Port-Harcourt. Would you like to make this your preferred location?

According to Wikipedia, Bride price, bride wealth, or bride token, is money, property, or other form of wealth paid by a groom or his family to the woman or the family of the woman he will be married to or is just about to marry.

However, in the wake of changing times, is the definition still valid or has it been watered down? This is what Joyce Onyemuwa sought to find out on the Language and Interpretation segment of the Sunny Side.

For one caller, the meaning of bride price dates back to the creation of the woman from the man by God. 

He also thinks man has a “privilege of being the first to be made.”

So if the woman was made from the man, was the man made differently?
