In some ways, traditional culture and modern culture are alike. Any culture is a system of learned and shared meanings. People learn and share things over the course of generations, and so we say they are a culture. Traditional and modern culture function similarly because both are ways of thinking, ways of relating to people and to the universe.

But apparently their love story just like Romeo and Juliet. When they want to perpetuate the relationship within the bonds of marriage, culture which make them difficult to realize their dream.
Actually Uang Pana’i not be the obstacle people to get married , but because this culture coupled with the modern culture . In this time, the meaning of Uang Pana’i also had a shift in meaning. Uang Pana’i considered to be a status symbol of a family. If the parents are rich, and their daughter hold Master Degree, should have Uang Pana’i more than one hundred million Rupiahs.
