Question Answer Details

How is Dowry different from the gifts one receives during the marriage?

Answered: 1 years ago Category: Dowry

During a marriage, the married couple receives several gifts from both sides. Some gifts, given out of pure willingness are a symbol of love and blessings to the newly wedded couple. Hence, every gift cannot be considered as Dowry. The difference between Dowry and gift is as follows: 


  1. A gift is given to the bride or bridegroom without there being any such demand, and the same is permitted under the Act. 
  2. Gift is different from Dowry in the sense that Dowry is demanded by either of the party as a condition to the marriage and may be given to the bride or the bridegroom.
