2018-06-02 10:03:01 -0600 asked a question Where does the "man of the house" custom come from?

I recently attended a Sikh funeral and noticed people giving money to the deceased eldest son. I was told that since he was the eldest, he was now head of the household and money was provided to assist him in his new role.

Where does this custom come from? Is in based on teachings in Gurbani, or is the custom one of Punjabi culture?

Thanks in advance for answering my question!
