Daughters Quotes

Doesn’t matter if she is a little girl or a grown-up woman, a daughter is always the apple of her parents’ eyes.  Some people feel that daughters share a special, deeper bond with their parents, as compared to sons. They are the most coveted of all family members, the most priceless, the most loved. According to many recent surveys, daughters have been found to be more emotionally connected to their fathers. Many girls during recent times have immensely praised their daddies for pampering them. It is a popular belief that a girl chooses a man quite similar to her father as a life partner. Some of them even choose the guy who really impresses their daddies.

Unfortunately, in several developing nations, where patriarchy exists, the daughters are seen as a curse by several parents. In nations like India, generally, a girl's family pays in either cash or kind to her groom's family at the time of marriage. This custom of paying a hefty amount to a son-in-law for the better future of a daughter is called dowry. Although the government has strict rules against dowries but still the system prevails which is very unfortunate. Hence, the thought dowry worries many parents and they begin seeing their child as a liability. For more on daughters quotes, read on.
