Get a Skip-The-Dowry mug for your grandma Beatrix.
A woman, who willingly indulges in the practice of paying "Dowry"(sums of money, property, gold etc) to the groom, at the time of her marriage in the hopes that she will be financially looked after by her husband for the entirety of her life.
E.g: I'd rather stay single all my life than be a dowry whore.

She's wants to be a dowry whore.

I don't want to marry a dowry whore, I'd like someone strong and independent.
