    • In each marriage, the bride brings her dowry which is a financial status of her family.
    • If she is rich it will consist of an estate and maybe some jewels.
    • If she is a daughter of a merchant or farmer she may get gold coins, clothing, household goods and maybe a livestock. the poor don’t usually have dowries.
    • Not much mattered anyways because whatever belonged to the wife now belongs to her newly husband.
