Marriage, Family, and KinshipThe bride's family generally provides a substantial dowry to the groom's family, while the groom's family furnishes a much smaller gift of clothing, jewelry, and personal items to the bride. Both families are expected to host a feast during the wedding festivities, which generally last three days. The cost of a wedding, especially to the bride's family, is high and often puts families into debt.

Educational and Socio-Cultural Status of Nepali Women
Education is a factor for enlightening people. It is key to empower both men and women and improve their socio-cultural status and quality of life. Therefore, women should have an equal access to education and educational opportunities. But in our context, disparity in education and educational opportunities among men and women exists significantly. Women's educational status is lower than man as indicated by their lower literacy rate. Lower educational status has a number of negative consequences in Nepalese women's life.
