According to him, today\’s bride price is like selling the bride. \”In the past, belis enough with two buffaloes and two horses. Now the money\’s worth. The higher the social status and
education bride, the more expensive belisnya,\” said Oma Meri in National Discussion \’Towards a Single Digit\’ in Mangga Besar, Jakarta Pusat , as written on Tuesday (11/24/2015). According Oma Meri, bride price or dowry to be paid at this time to reach hundreds of million rupiah. According Oma Meri, these conditions encourage the emergence of exploitation when the groom\’s family felt it was \’bought\’ the bride. \”Feeling she had purchased with belis were so expensive, they are allowed to do anything it wants. Then there was sexual violence,\” said Oma Meri. Responding to this trend, initiated Meri Oma \’belis democracy\’.
