In a patriarchal society despite of being how modern, daughters are considered to be burdens and their farewell (marriage) from the family are planned/dreamt since their birth. Even the modern girls in this part of this region are taught to adjust and compromise so that they can later live for others, particularly for men in their life.
Though men are more responsible financially to look after the family but in
this modern world women also share this liability equally. Or, if a woman’s domestic work and her personal capacity to produce and nurture are economically valued, it would be more than equivalent to the responsibility shared by her husband...Wives are manipulated or exploited by a few husbands... Either it can be a filthy demand for dowry or more classy behavior to obtain the family status, few husbands use wives as a weapon and sometimes as a shield to protect their status and well being...—deeptikhakurel.com
