My 15yo dd wants to have sex... So I am going to charge her bf... UPDATE FOR THOSE WHO THINK I AM A PIMP
Maybe some of you should do a little research before you pass judgement!!!! Since the beginning of time families have accepted gifts in exchange of their women.
I figured that they are going to do it anyway so we all might as well benefit from the situation.
Background, before you start to bash...
DD and BF have known each other for 7 years and have been really close friends until they became BF&GF shortly after DD 15th b-day, almost a year ago. Last week DD & BF announced that they want to take the next step in their relationship and have sex. Both are virgins and DD asked to go on BC and said they plan to use condoms as well.
While shocked I am happy that they came to us before they went any further. We discussed stds, teen pregnancies and all that other stuff and they felt they are responsible enough to take this step. And to be honest I agree.
DD's BF's family is well established in our community and have an ass load of money. DD's BF's father offer to donate $5000 towards DD's college fund if I allow the kids to take this next step.
I am not a bad mother!!!! In many cultures it is custom to for the grows family to make offering and give gifts to the brides family before the wedding. In most cases the family with the best offering basically wins the bride.
The Wedding procedure starts with the groom's side sending a representative who requests the marriage between the parties. Then an appointment is given and a verdict on the marriage is given. Before the wedding the Dowry (ጧሎሽ) is given as agreed.
Marriage proceedings often begin with the man proposing to the woman. Upon her acceptance the man then calls for a meeting with his clan elders who largely consist of extended elderly family members. A delegation carrying small gifts is then sent to the woman's home to meet with her clan elders. Deliberations on bride price actually begin on a later date and these are strictly conducted by the older men only.Upon completion of these negotiations, a wedding date is set, with the elders having provided an acceptable percentage of the full dowry. The rest of the dowry is expected later. No request is made for it, but the young man is expected to remember to finish his payment and failure to do so spells dishonor for that family.
