Girl demands 300kg grouper fish as dowry

Says her groom must catch the fish himself

A Saudi man seeking marriage got the shock of his life when the would-be bride demanded what he considered as the most bizarre dowry — a 300kg grouper fish.

The girl told the suitor at her home in the eastern Saudi province of Qateef that she could agree to marry him only if he succeeds in getting her that fish.

“Her condition was that the man himself must catch the fish. He went made and left her home as he considered this condition as impossible,” Al Sada daily said.
