couple's interviews

Mathew and Rosamma

“Both of us feel that as a tradition, dowry discriminates against women. We see their value being compromised. It places a heavy yoke on girls and their parents. The practice of dowry can often lead to a lot of harassment and violence. The core reason behind the existence of such a custom is a low view of women, and we are against this value. We believe that both men and women are equal and there should be no business transaction in the guise of marriage.”


Cherian and Jamila

“One aunt actually told me that I was a fool to give up what would have come my way even without me asking for it!”

How long have you been married? What do you both do?
Jamila: We’ve been married for twenty five years. He now works for a financial institution after doing his MBA, post engineering. I am a psychiatrist.
