Is it time to end the practice of wedding dowries?

Quote:
A Syrian bride-to-be has asked her fiancé for 15 decapitated heads of pro-Assad troops as her dowry and set up a marriage termination clause worth 50 more decapitated heads.

Quote:
He accepted the heavy dowry challenge and pledged to have 15 pro-Assad troops beheaded for her love. In case of divorce he pledged to also provide the additional 50 decapitated heads of pro-Assad forces.

That is true love people

Couples with common interests tend to have longer/happier marriages

What happens if they get divorced 25 years from now and there are no more pro-Assad troops?

Arbitration between both parties until a suitable political enemy substitution is found and agreed upon?

So because it's a dowry, is he legally allowed to do that or something?

That's easy, they just do what the Belgians used to do in the Congo (except with hands)... just cut off any 50 heads. Decapitated heads tell no tales.

That ain't how it works, "Dave" - you'd be receiving the 5 alpacas.

To add onto this point

How the hell are we supposed to end this practice?

Yet another reason why I could not give less of a **** if these idiots continue to kill each other. Just make the entire region a ****ing parking lot.

Actually dowries still happen for those who are citizens of Canada/US etc.

All joking aside though it should highlight just how deep the hatred is between groups in the region if a bride to be is more interested in decapitated heads as opposed to say flowers.

I think it is. I mean if we're going to stoop to such modest numbers like 50 heads, what's the point? That's just a token number of heads. Show me a thousand heads and maybe I can see it.
