I think of some of the counter attacks & arrangements that a boy in India has to do to save himself from these gender biased laws. I write some that I think that works.
1) Soon after marriage marriage take a credit-card in the name of wife. Shop with it a lot. Increase it's creditlimit to maximum. & as soon girl go & sit her home SWAP her card to it's maximum or more than maximum limit. Banker themself pull her out.
2) As quick as the girl or her family start doing some scene, Go get & take a loan of big amount in her name secretely. ( by hook or by crook).
3) Buy some stamp papers of different amount & take her sign on them & keep them. They work a lot.
(Telling that I am going to buy some property in your name, by hook or by crook)
