OF COCONUT AND DOWRY

Earlier today I was wandering through cyber space when I came across this question. I found it interesting, don't get me wrong, the problems is serious but the way it goes is a little bit funny. Its about coconut and dowry.

What about the cast system in Hinduism?
I married a man who is from India.

I am constantly being nagged, by his parents, about how I do not come from a good cast and how I did not give them dowry. What on earth is this all about? They did not give my parents any dowry, why should my parents give them anything? I don't get it... Someone please explain....

My parents give my husband and I a Home and two cars plus some money to put in savings account, his parents gave us a coconut..

I do not care what they gave us.... but they, my husbands parents, nag and nag about how bad of a wife I am .....

Is there anything to stop that, other than divorce.... My husband does not want a divorce..I do..

I am an American, and of no cast.


I gather some information about caste system in Hinduism, it's actually something like a social class u are in.

and the Dowry is opposite to what we've been practicing. The bride pays at marriage not the husband.
