Whampos, well I bet he's now fully at the mercy of those greedy property owners.
So what will happen to this dowry? Is it all her's or does it go into the "family pot"? Does the girl's mum take it? As an expat the dowry system is a bit of a mystery to me.

"mother says this because parents want to give the best to their children. and the boy, if he does not love the girl, will he do this? no ."

So if the two most important criteria for marriage are the secure future of the children and the presence of love between the girl and boy, will the girl ever fork over the money to her potential husband ?

one the one hand. the money that the boy made into flowers are not given away, right?  on the other hand, they are in a wonderful age to enjoy life, what's wrong with it? they have the right to do everything they want .

"the money that the boy made into flowers are not given away, right?"

He is giving the money to the girl, isn't he ?

"they have the right to do everything they want"

My point remains that in such relationships of "they", it is always the male who is supplying the money to the female, never the other way around. Right or wrong ? It is "wonderful" for the female to enjoy because she doesn't have to donate any finances to this arrangement.

“If" is the middle word of life : what if they don't get married  - does she get to keep the loot ?

Again your ignore the possibility of the female offering up huge wads of money to begin the wedding negotiations. Or would this be a case of "eating the soft rice" on the man's part ?
