WA CM 1.3 | In your community, what are the major issues surrounding the bride price?
Bride price is a highly cherished custom in Uganda. In some cultures or families, the bride price is optional. In others, it is mandatory. Although it's seen as way to show respect and appreciation to the woman’s family, there are several negative issues surrounding it, which the Marriage and Divorce Bill aims to solve. It does not prohibit bride price but it suggests that these gifts should not be an essential requirement for any marriage.
