"Property alone will confer rank, wealth will be the only source of devotion, passion will be the sole bond of union between the sexes, falsehood will be the only means of success in litigation, and women will be the objects merely of sensual gratification.

[...] Mutual assent will be marriage, fine clothes will be dignity. (Vishnu Purana)"Tweet
