I keep finding articles stating that because of the One Child Policy, there is a big gender imbalance in China. They say it's bad enough that millions of men won't be able to find a wife.
The gender imbalance is severest in rural farmlands, where women are leaving to search for jobs and husbands in the cities – leading to the emergence of “bachelor villages” across China.
I even read that there is now human trafficking from Vietnam and North Korea to bring wives to some parts of rural China.
I think that the fact that there is actual gender imbalance in China or in India for instance is probably true. But does it really have such an effect on people? Are there really villages where people can't find a wife because everybody is already married? This sounds pretty extreme to me.
