* Bride-Price–¬†also known as “Bride-Wealth”, is an amount of money, property or other forms of wealth “paid” to the family of a woman for the right to marry their daughter. In anthropological literature, bride price has often been explained in market terms, as payment made in “exchange” for the bride’s family’s loss of her labor and fertility within her kinship group. It may also be understood as a gift¬†from the groom to his new bride’s family. In this sense, it is a substantial gesture of goodwill in forging a new unity-of-lineages. Unfortunately, the voluntary nature of gift-giving in the case of bride price has often been lost as the practice became a requirement for marriage, a requirement that has often proved burdensome.

*¬†Criminal-Organization a.k.a.”Organized-crime”¬†is a category of transnational, national, or local groupings of highly centralized enterprises run by criminals¬†who intend to engage in illegal activity, most commonly for money¬†and profit.¬†Some criminal organizations, such as terrorist groups, are politically motivated. Sometimes criminal organizations force people to do business with them, e.g. when a gang extorts money from shopkeepers for so-called “protection”.
