Mehr for all or not?

The Quran tell us groom must give a suitable marital gift to his bride. The question is that what is the reason of this advantage accorded to women, only because God willed so?

(i also received an interesting answer from a dear friend on this subject, she said: "...in any case by leaving the marital gift optional (that is, a woman may decide not to take it) this tells me that is not a permanent economic principle but exist to cover societies that have a dowry system (just as verses on slavery exist for the same reason")

Dear teachers and friends, i will be happy to learn from you on this subject.

Thank you so much
Regards,
Kian
