Isnt it marvellous ! If your daughter's choice of husband does not meet with your expectations you can always fall back on the police to create illegal pressure , even if your daughter is a consenting adult with all the rights assured to her by the Constitution but woefully denied to so many women . You can threaten, intimidate and deny rights and privileges to an average citizen. You can deny him justice - you can separate him from his wife - you can pressurise her into becoming a "good" daughter.
Of course to do all this you have to be a) Mr Moneybags and b) have a lot of very influential people in very very high places in your network. Of course being Mr Moneybags it goes without saying that you would have to know people in high places to get multifarious jobs accomplished.
I wonder how many of us realise how helpless we are in the face of such power .
