He was probably only allowed one.

He paid to have his daughter married off to some guy that was socially beneath her. She does not look happy in the pic; just pissed off and accepting her fate.

/not a happy story

I bet there's a new Groom out there that very much disagrees.

Dowry was so expensive because the chick was a traitor to the Klingons.

Of course that dowry is also kind of a suggestion as to the level at which you should be supporting her and any children from this marriage.

/also he may have more than one, a lot of the rich have a kid or two overseas to avoid one child
//or just pay some fees to get around it

I'm going to step out on a limb here and say that there is some financial incentive akin to a tax shelter that make this a financially wise move. I say this with zero knowledge of how the Chinese economy works, but with the skepticism that I have for all decisions regarding finance.

As the son in law I'd be happy as hell with that dowry. But on the other hand I bet there are strings attached the son in law don't realize. You think you just marry into 100 million scot free?

How can they possibly fail to be happy.  She knows that it took 100 million to get the guy to marry her.  He knows that he's an investment for the family business.

BLISS.

Meh, not worth it to become what is essentially an indentured servant , which is what son-in-law will be.

I wish I could've subbed in the bride's name, but TFA didn't appear to think that that was an important fact to include.

I thought this was going to be about the rich chinese guy from last year that refuses to accept that his daughter is a lesbian so this a is a pleasant alternative.

This. I'd be afraid that somewhere in the fine print it would give them the right to harvest my organs in the event the father needs a liver or something.

If they've known each other since they were 5 years old my guess is that he isn't some horrible surprise. Also, dowry is an ancient custom, not a payoff to get rid of your daughter.

Considering they've known each other since childhood, if she's sick of his shiat, he's probably sick of her shiat too. That would mean the parents wanted them to get married.

Heard about this on the radio a couple months ago. I think the story was that the daughter was a lesbian and the father wanted her to have a normal family.

They were childhood sweethearts - from primary school forwards. This is one of the relatively scarce instances of a Chinese girl marrying for love.

Or the parents get to supervise and direct any sexual encounters the newlyweds have until a son is born...

This is the best father-in-law until you find out that he's actually in charge of a huge criminal syndicate, and he makes you start sending "messages" (beatings). Oh wait.. that was LOST.
