    Default A Goat, A Chicken, or a Golf Club... Which One Would Get YOU Married?

    Hey everyone,

    Every now and then we like to joke here in Singles about things such as an old-fashioned dowry, in which the groom gives the bride's family a gift in exchange for her hand in marriage.

    Just for fun, what things would win YOUR family over and convince them to happily marry you off?

    I can tell you right now that a goat or a chicken would not impress my Dad at all.

    However... If you gave him a state-of-the-art golf club, I might be in some trouble.

    And if you were to give him an entire SET of brand-new clubs, that would pretty much guarantee I'd need to start packing (and I don't even live with my parents!)

    What about you? What kind of dowry/payment would have your family sending you down the aisle faster than you can say, "I do!"?

    This is meant to be a fun, lighthearted thread that everyone can answer... Guys and girls... married and single. For our married friends... What do you know you could have given your spouse's family, or what could they have given yours, ir order to hurry the process along?

    (And by the way, no exchanges or refunds! )

    Happy posting!

    Even nothing. My family is very willing to send me out! ASAP! (It's a joke but slightly true.)

    It depends.

    I'm pretty sure the next question is going to be, "What kind of beer?"

    A prospective husband would have to give me a written guarantee he would never send her back to us.

    For her mother i'd give jewelry & father one of the new iphones. I'm not old fashioned but it would be pretty funny to give her parents a bucket of KFC for her hand in marriage.

    That was when I get back to circles again, after a relapse, but lose the job again, for not changing my data.

    In my family there is a running joke that my uncle gave my grandmother a mule and two donkeys for my aunt's hand in marriage.

    As for what my family would take, nothing. In my family you become a part of our family. We never lose anybody to some other family.

    My mom would take quilting supplies, step dad would take a beer or two, brothers would hit u up for babysitting so they could get out of the house and if you had a few dollars for the date night they would hog tie me up
    and deliver me!

    Let Go
    As children bring their broken toys to God for Him to mend.
    I brought my broken dreams to God bc He is my friend.

    But instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone,
    I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.

    At last I snatched them back and cried
    "How can You be so slow?!"
    My child, He said, "What could I do?"
    "You never did let go!"
