When a Saudi man asked a woman if she would marry him, she agreed - but only if he caught her a giant grouper for a dowry.

According to the report by Emirates247, the woman stipulated that the grouper should weight 300 kg and that the would-be groom should go out and actually catch the fish himself.

The man, who comes from the eastern province of Saudi Qateef, says her conditions will be difficult to meet and as a result he may not be able to marry her.
