With the hard economic times facing most Kenyan youth, young men are increasingly opting out of marriage to avoid paying dowry.
As a result, come-we-stay arrangements are the most common form of modern marriages as young men continue to hope for the abolishment of the old tradition of paying for a wife.
However, in marriages where dowry must be paid, a new method of negotiating for the lowest possible bride-price is available.

In the video, Jaymo who plays the groom, engages his bride’s father in tense and outrageous negotiations for great comic relief.
