Petal Pusher Has To Buy 124,000 Red Roses
Will they have enough vases at home? An Iranian man has been ordered by a court to buy his wife 124,000 red roses. The woman decided to claim her mahr, or dowry, after ten years of marriage, saying: ``He even refused to pay for my coffee if we went to a cafe or restaurant". A long-stemmed rose in the Islamic Republic costs a little over $2, so the order will cost him more than $250,000. The husband says he can only afford five roses a day and complains "her billionaire friends put such ideas in her head."
