I strongly recommend reading AN EXCESS MALE by Maggie Shen King (it's $1.99
on Amazon/US, don't know the prices anywhere else). It's a heartbreaking and
chilling look at a possible solution for 40 million excess men created by
the one-child policy. Let's just say that men have to have the dowries now.
The world building is excellent, as you have technological progress being
used by a Chinese government which hasn't actually changed a whole lot, and
the lives of four people which are all wrapped up in one marriage. Well,
sort of. Oh, please just go read it, it's good!
