    Post Wall Feminists to Flock to India? You Can Buy a Husband at India’s 700-Year-Old Groom Market

    "Every year, thousands of men gather under the Pipal trees in the local market area of Madhubani district, India’s Bihar state, and wait to be chosen by prospective brides. Called Saurath Mela or Sabhagachhi, the 9-day groom market was allegedly started by Raja Hari Singh of the Karnat dynasty over seven centuries ago to make it easier for women to find the right husband from a diverse group of men. Each groom is priced based on their capability, including their educational qualifications and family background.
    Maithili women in Bihar choose their husbands. Accompanied by their families, they browse the available offers, ask for proof such as birth certificates and school certificates, and if they find someone they like (and they can afford), they start discussing the details.
    Bihar’s traditional groom market, reporting that engineers, doctors and government employees are most sought after, with the young ones being the most popular. Even though dowries are officially illegal in India, and that one of the main goals of the groom market was to eliminate the dowry, it’s still common practice for young, eligible bachelors to demand considerable dowries from the family of the bride . . .

    The price tag, I imagine, is about dowries and not just an auctioning off of males as the headline would suggest. The article doesn’t say, but I assume the guys involved can say no?

    Apart from that it doesn’t sound too different from this:

    The lengths people will go to trying to fulfil that particular dream never ceases to amaze me, and I suppose them too when they eventually realise what they truly got themselves in to.

    I guess, if you can buy a husband, you can also sell a husband, right?
    And the price of the husband goes up or down like in a stock market depending on the husband’s condition, right?

    I notice the women made sure the crops were already in before signing up. They always want the rewards, but not the work that goes into them.

    It's nothing new, really. Every minute some woman sells her husband down the river.
    You'd better bet that those men on Groom Market are willing participants. India is the land of simps for a reason.
    Maybe in the future it will even become feminist mecca where post-wall women seek their husbands.
    Bachelors, PUAs and swedish men will go to Thailand, while cat-ladies will travel to India in hopes of finding a nice guy.

    Buy a husband??? To buy, would put value on the male... Unlike Western Countries where the male is disposable (easily replaceable) to most females... If it was family money that was paid out the wife would have family pressure to make the marriage work. Husband could use the money to pay back any cost of schooling etc. or use it for a jump start to supporting his family... She's actually bring something to the table besides looks and futility...

    We know what doesn't work in the West... The wheels have fallen off and been stolen long ago... It's interesting to hear of other traditions... Thanks for the share.

    There's even a bride kidnapping system in which a guy kidnaps the women he likes and after months the father of girl comes to the groom's house and gets paid money, leaves.

    If that were legal anywhere in the west, I guarantee you won't find any kidnappers!

    So the guy kidnaps the gal and instead of demanding a ransom he pays one?

    Interesting system.

    I know MGTOW is starting to take off in India but I don't think they are at the point of the West yet, this thread reminded me of the stories where speed dating events were cancelled because no men turned up! Of course it is blamed all on the men rather than it being about the poor quality women who offer nothing but a bad risk.

    Hahahahahah. That's kidnapping system is limited to that area or tribe and authorities are aware of it that it's the locals tradition, so they don't bother but if someone else tries to do it. Good luck national security act and firearms act.

    I wouldn't be too sure about that. I think a surprising number of young men would give it a go.

    Re: Post Wall Feminists to Flock to India? You Can Buy a Husband at India’s 700-Year-Old Groom Market

    I watched a report about marriages all over the world and they interviewed some young men in India who were glad to marry a bride they didn't know. One of the guys said: "Look, back there in America half of the marriages end up in divorce. A girl can lie to me just to get married. That's why I like an arranged marriage: who knowns me better than my own family? Who knows my future bride better than their own family? Every parent wants the best for their offspring, and mine will make sure to choose a beautiful woman I can get along with."

    Actually this one thing i agree with. Cause an experienced gang will certainly know better how things work in real world not like movie, fantasy like the majority of young guys have.

    I used to work with an Indian woman (as in, from India, on a work visa, not a "-American") and she was in a marriage arranged by someone's parents (not sure if it was hers, or her husband's). She was always unhappy and sour before her marriage, but man, did she ever become unhappy after! Not my problem, though.
