Why do people Give Gifts for wedding?
    People give gifts for weddings for different reasons.Usually,people want to help the bride(პატარძალი) and groom.(სიძე) Many countries have their own customs.(ჩვეულებები)In the United States,both families give gifts to the couple.(წყვილი)In other places,the customs are very different.
    In India,the groom’s family asks for
(თხოვს) a large payment from the bride’s family.The payment is called a dowry.(მზითევი)Sometimes the payment is a special gift with a Sony television set.Sometimes the payment is money.The money may be equal to the family’s salary (ხელფასი)for two or three years.Both families agree about the money.They agree on how much money the bride’s family can afford to pay.(შეძლებს გადაიხადოს)Some Indian families do not like to have many daughters.It’s too expensive!Today in India,a woman with a large salary is the same as a(იგივეა რაც) woman with a lagre dowry.
    In the Middle East,the bride’s family asks for a large amount of money from the groom.The gift is called mahr.The mahr is money and sometimes the land or a home.In Saudi Arabia the groom gives a lot of money.He buys clothes for the bride for one year and buys furniture for their new home.Rich couples get expensive gifts from both parents.the parents often give nice furniture or a new car.
   At one time in Saudi Arabia,the mahr for a bride was very,very high.Men couldn’t afford to marry
(დაქორწინება)   Saudi Arabian women.They married women from Lebanon and Egypt.This was bad for Saudi Arabian women.Soon they didn’t have husbands.The government made new rules.They made it hard(გაართულეს) to marry a foreigner.(უცხოელი)Another Middle Eastern country,Oman had problems too.Soldiers in the army couldn’t  afford to get (ფინანსურად ვერ სწვდებოდნენ) married.The sultan of Oman made a law against large mahr payments.This helped couples in Oman to get married.
    In Georgia,when young people fall in love,
(უყვარდებათ)they tell their parents that they have met someone they would like to marry.The parents of the bride go to visit the parents of the groom.The parents of the bride offer a wedding ring as a present and to show their support(მხარდაჭერა) for the marriage.The bride receives jewelry.The groom should have a house or the young couple should live with the husband’s family.At this meeting they discuss the arrangements(მზადება,სამზადისი) for the wedding.Usually the wedding takes place in a month or two after the parents have met.When guests come to the wedding they bring gifts or give money to the new couple.
     A wedding is a very special and important time.People give gifts for different reasons,but one thing is the same.Everyone wants to help the bride and groom start a happy life together.
