I hear that's how it is in American culture...but I think a man should be a provider. I am from India. My cousins parents said "Why should we pay for a guy who is basically going to sleep with our daughter everyday?", they paid for their sons wedding but not for their daughters, and they have good income, they aren't poor. I heard someone in the family didn't get married because the guy couldn't afford everything the girl wanted. I know marriage is about love, but if you can't afford a nice wedding don't expect much from the marriage.

thank you
