Bride price

Here in PNG they have a custom that when a man marries a woman he must
pay the bride's family a bride price. Lots of other places around the
world used to have this custom and is is still widely practiced here.

A common bride price is to give the bride's family a pig. They will
then usually slaughter it and have a big feast for both the bride's and
groom's families. It is common for there to be a small wedding ceremony
and then have a huge party later.
