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!

Look for Jean Lamb's author page on Amazon-
Phoenix in Shadow is up!
