1. Bride price is not a condition for marriage but only as a penalty for rape.

Exodus 22:16-17: “If a man seduces a virgin who is not pledged to be married and sleeps with her, he must pay the bride-price, and she shall be his wife. If her father absolutely refuses to give her to him, he must still pay the bride-price for virgins.”

Deuteronomy 22:28-29: “If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels[a] of silver. He must marry the young woman,for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives.”

You can still pay the bride price and still be denied the woman to be your wife by her father.

At the same time, if the man has never slept with the woman, there should be no need to pay money for her.
