You are right. Seeing how fast the Chinks are growing economically, I predict the flow of mail order brides will be reversed. Instead of the West importing women from China, Chinese men will be importing women from the West and South East Asia.TankiesYank said:Benefits mothers as mail-order brides?

True in only the remotest regions and mostly in certain minority ethnic groups. In almost all Han regions the dowry is long gone and the girl gets a free choice of husband, albeit with some minor emotional blackmail. Sons are still preferred, though.dazzer said:Basically what has happened with the 'one child' rule in China
is that women abort the children unless they are sons
and the absurd law has come to roost where now there is a lack
of marriage aged women.
In China the dowry still exists and girls are seen as an expensive
liability. Sons though are seen as a breadwinner that can look after
Whats also happening as well is that a lot of these single male
sons are spoilt rotten and basically not marriage material. They are
fat, spoilt, indolent, children in adult bodies. I will try and find you a
link about this phenonemon.
You can't be my brother in law since my sister in law isn't married, but we appear to share the same grannie in law.My Granny-in-law was fond of saying she didn't mind a laowei in the family as a good heart was preferable to good looks in a husband. My ego wasn't bruised much...
