Definition: payment which the bride is entitled to receive from the groom in consideration of marriage, according to Islamic laws.
How much is the average mahar in Kuwait these days?
I’ve heard Kuwaiti guys/men complain that even though they’d like to get married they can’t afford to pay the mahar. Is it such a large sum?
And does the groom or the groom’s father pay the mahar usually?
What does the bride spend the money on? Does she even spend it usually, or like put it away in a bank account in case she needs it in the future?
And since we’re discussing marriage, who pays for the wedding expenses (dress, reception, food etc)? How much does a wedding cost in Kuwait these days? Once I was told that wedding cakes alone are in the hundreds.
