    What is your problem guys when someone is celebrating his marriage with own money. Do have a problem with the system of marriage or with its expenditure. If it is with the expenditure, then Pls. look into the expenditure of a boy who spends hundreds of rupees for his girlfriends in the name of love, valentine day, discos, pizza huts, greeting cards, gifts and more than anything else to the mobile companies.
    Fight against this also and let us have a legislation for that also????

    How about a legislation banning Gold ornaments and diamonds also?????

    There is a problem of peer pressure in society that creates the concept of dowry giving and taking. Most Indian men are accused of extravagant marriages by the government. But the government itself is promoting them.
