The groom, identified as Osama, was given a deadline but would keep a watch on his hard work and eagerness to increase the Facebook likes and that he could reduce the dowry if he is satisfied by Osama's progress.

And finally the groom managed to collect 1 million likes on his Facebook page.

Paying dowries in Yemen is increasingly becoming a concern since most of the young men cannot afford it.

The father of the bride did this gesture as a way to get the society's attention on how expensive the dowries of brides are becoming.
