    What are the various Yiddishe minhagim regarding the Kallah’s family giving the Choson a dowry? Which Seforim Hakedoshim bring citations for this minhag?


    Is the Mishna one of the Seforim Hakedoshim?


    There are many minhagim within the Torah world, including some frum communities with “brideprice” rather than “dowry.” One factor is probably whether the newlywed couple is going to be supported by one or the other side, how much money is spent for the wedding and by whom, what assets or skills each side brings to the marriage, etc. The lack of economic arrangements do not affect the validity of a marriage.
