Last night during a lesson, I asked the audience what they thought a reasonable mahar was. I suggested, for a young professional working brother, $10,000 (over time). Let me tell you, that suggestion got a lot of looks from the brothers. I would like to throw this question out to you, the readers. What do you think an ideal mahar is for a brother with a good career? I would like to see different suggestions for different situations and hope to benefit.
