Summary:
This essay suggests, on the basis of information from Barma in Chad and a number of other societies, that marriage ceremonial, of which bridewealth forms a part, may under certain conditions partially socialize younger men into their mature economic roles. Further, insofar as bridewealth performs this function, it contributes to the reproduction, in a Marxist sense, of labor in these economies.
