Traditions friend, traditions. i can tell you that i am a hindu brahmin (i have to mention my religion as it will not be clear otherwise) and i did not take a single paisa in my marriage from my in laws. even the marriage expenses were shared 50-50. whatever they gave to their daughter was purely their choice. I only DEMANDED my to be wife and SRI PHAL (Coconut) in the wedding process. nothing more, nothing less .... !!

Not in all parts of India. Maharashtrian weddings are quite simple
