Woman From ReeeK'ew is compassionate, but at times too forgiving. In a society that emphasizes accountability, she struggles to hold people accountable although she holds herself to a high personal standard. This may be due in part to her social standing, as well as her upbringing. Proud Man From Wehl-kwew pays her father the Bride Price for her; however, it's up to her and her father whether they will accept it. He is a older man of means, and can pay her Bride Price in full, which means a "full marriage," so she would go and live with his family. However, since childhood her closest friend has been Man from "O Schegep" (the boat landing at Rek' -woy, a reddish cliff to the west of the mouth of the Klamath). His father feels some disappointment in him due to the pleasure he takes in supporting others to aid in their success rather than in creating his own success. This is what Woman From Reeek'ew admires most about him. Who's Bride Price will she accept? Will she choose the security of a slightly older established man or will the qualities of the man her own age appeal to her?

When markets are incomplete, cultural norms may play an important role in shaping economic behavior. In this paper, we explore whether income shocks increase the probability of child marriages in societies that engage in bride price payments - transfers from the groom to the bride's parents at marriage. We develop a simple model in which households are exposed to income volatility and have no access to credit markets. If a daughter marries, the household obtains a bride price and has fewer members to support. In this framework, girls have a higher probability of marrying early when their parents have higher marginal utility of consumption because of adverse income shocks. We test the prediction of the model by exploiting variation in rainfall shocks over a woman's life cycle, using a survey dataset from rural Tanzania. We find that adverse shocks during teenage years increase the probability of early marriages and early fertility among women.

Traditional cultural practices can play an important role in development, but can also inspire condemnation. The custom of bride price, prevalent throughout sub-Saharan Africa and parts of Asia as a payment by the groom to the family of the bride, is one example. In this paper, we show a perhaps surprising economic consequence of this practice. We revisit one of the best-studied historical development projects, the INPRES school construction program in Indonesia, and show that previously found small effects on female enrollment mask heterogeneity by bride price tradition. Ethnic groups that traditionally engage in bride price payments at marriage increased female enrollment in response to the program. Within these ethnic groups, higher female education at marriage is associated with a higher bride price payment received, providing a greater incentive for parents to invest in girls' education and take advantage of the increased supply of schools. However, we see no increase in education following school construction for girls from ethnicities without a bride price tradition. We replicate these findings in Zambia, where we exploit a similar school expansion program that took place in the early 2000s. While there may be significant downsides to a bride price tradition, our results suggest that any change to this cultural custom should likely be considered alongside additional policies to promote female education.
