Betrothal gifts to brides' parents in China as of June 2013

The graph shows the amount of money given as a gift to brides' parents in China as of June 2013. This custom was originally meant to provide for the bride's aging parents, as she is traditionally expected to care for the husband's parents. Although with rising standards of living in China, this aspect is no longer a concern, many brides and their families still view a suiter's income as a barometer for his marriageability. In Henan province, men paid an average of 9,600 US dollars to their future spouse's family for their consent to the marriage.
