I'm expensive, and high maintenance, too

I was recently informed that I am very expensive. I was told by a group of Rwandans (after a lovely serenade) that I am worth 8 cows and 1 bull. When I repeated this to my Rwandan friends, they laughed in disbelief. Apparently, when a man wants to marry a woman, he gives her family a cow. If he wants 2 wives, he brings a bull. Therefore, I cost the same as 10 women! I bet my parents would agree.
