Who says men have all the power?

Humorous news out of Iran. When you marry, there is a marriage contract between the man and woman, and the woman's dowry is listed. She can ask for it at any time, or if she wants a divorce. A woman just went to court to force her husband to pay the dowry he owes her - 124,000 roses! His apartment has been confiscated by police until he pays up. I feel for the husband, but he shouldn't have agreed to that dowry if he couldn't afford it.
