    [mod] That's a completely distasteful comment and absolutely no credit to you. [/mod]




  • Told by a few people but not your boyfriend or his family?

    I've never heard of it.

    What?

    If this 'donation' ever comes up in conversation, tell your boyfriend to sort it out and if he can't, then leave...

    It's all to do with "the land". You need to show that you are a person of substance and that any offspring will have good bloodlines. Secondary school teacher sounds OK. Complications arise if, for instance, the heir to a farm falls for a girl from "the terrace" in the town.

    I've never heard of that 'custom' in over two decades of working in the countryside in several parts of the country.




  • Wind up.
    Pure and simple.

    (If not a wind up, run like hell.)

    You miss my point, but the best of luck anyway.




  • Em I think, maybe just maybe your friend is taking the p**s

    Im only quoting what she told me thats what a few people had to do that she knew

    What part am i missing curioser??were you taking the piss




  • If you are serious, and his parents are seriously looking 40k (how do you get on with them, by the way?) then either your boyfriend needs a slap upside the head, or you need to find somebody else.
    ( you haven't been leaving Nursing Home brochures lying around, have you?)

    My great granny supposedly paid £300 to get into our family 100 plus yrs ago
    It was the tradition at tje time
    Bigger the farm the more the father of the bride had to pay to secure her future their/get her into wealth




  • Run . Run away quite fast.

    I know, I was just been a smart arse so no offence..

    I and alot of others never heard anything of the sort, so thats why I'd think she was having a laugh. Also I'm sure your boyfriend would of mentioned this before, so I think you have nothing to worry about :)

  • Dowry all the go years ago.
    However if you take good care of your partner and help out farming wise I'm sure that will be enough

    No urine extraction intended. The point is, if the requirement to pony up is genuine, the purpose is to establish your substance.

    You don't have to life one finger on the farm if you don't want to.

    I farm with him anytime im there and for calfing etc im up in the night and school during the day

    If a dowry is needed to establish substance then perhaps they shouldn't be moving in together.
    Things may or may not work out long term but presumably if they're moving in together they should know each other pretty well and therefore know about substance or otherwise.




  • [mod]I think we've had the entire gambit of possible jokes. The question seems genuine so let's keep the answers helpful please.[/mod]

    The number of posts is correct, I presume posts in certain other forums don't appear in searches.
