So couples that perform English wedding before payment of bride price and traditional weddings are earned!
Kindly see Section 47 of the Marriage Act.

(Tip 36)

A landlord is not expected to repay a tenant for repairs made by the tenant unless the landlord authorised the tenant in WRITING. So oral agreement between landlord and tenant over repairs to be done by tenant is not allowed in our laws. See section 15 of Recovery of Premises Act and its equivalent Laws in other states.
