47. This problem will work itself out in the long run...
Edited on Tue May-24-11 04:06 PM by Endangered Specie
Eventually women will become so sparse the laws of supply and demand will make the dowry system a joke, and likely make it to go the other way (if you are the parents of a daughter when the range is, say, 40f/60m, not only does she get to pick the 'best-of-the-litter' male but they can tell any family that wants a dowry to eat shit).

Cultures change, economics don't.

And as far as 'importing' brides for all the lonely Indian men who get left w/o a chair at the end of the music, that won't work either, as most countries that export their women tend to focus on countries where men have a much higher standard of living and money (if the lonely Indian male in question isn't very well off, forget it... odds are he'd be best-of-the-litter anyway so mute point).
