The "Bride Price should be scrapped" Argument

Each time I see this "Bride Price should be scrapped" argument trending from a clique on my timeline, I just nod my small head.

I have never understood their skewed argument.
It actually baffles me how people think their opinion is superior. Because its coming from you? LOL!!

If payment of Dowry gives the man a sense of entitlement(thereby a breeding ground for domestic violence and abuse),

How come cultures where women pay groom's price treat women WORSE than us? 
How come cultures/clime with no payment of bride price are more violent domestically towards their partners than us?

Sunday Devotional: Be Thankful

 Thank God for the Material Blessings That He Gives You
       We seem never to be satisfied with what we have—rich or poor, healthy or sick. But what a difference it makes when we realize that everything we have has been given to us by God! King David prayed, “Wealth and honor come from you … We give you thanks, and praise your glorious name … Everything comes from you” (1 Chronicles 29:12-14, NIV).

Even Washington Post's has an article on President Buhari's comment on Aisha belonging to his Kitchen

Washington Post also has something to say on President Buhari's recent comment that his wife, Aisha Buhari, belongs to his Kitchen.... 
If you think Donald Trump has problems, consider those of Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari. Elected last year as a no-nonsense candidate to clean up Africa's biggest democracy, his popularity has fallen amid various spiraling crises — a faltering economy, a deadly insurgency, a devastating famine. And now, even his wife is skeptical.
