18. Chinese Billionaire Offered A Handsome Dowry And Then Took It Away
Not all dowries in history have stayed with the married couple. Recently, Chinese billionaire Cecil Chao offered many that would marry his daughter up to $40 million. The catch was his daughter, a lesbian, had to agree to marry the potential suitor and state she was no longer a lesbian.
While Cecil and his daughter received many offers, she refused them all and pleaded with her father to accept her partner, whom she loves very much. Even though it embarrassed him, Cecil agreed and told people the offer was off the table and kept the money.
