Inter-caste marriage

An interesting chat with one of my batchmates last night made me think on these lines, why conservative people are against inter-caste marriages? Foolish question, eh?
As early men, i.e., during the evolutionary transition of humans from monkeys, they lived in tribes. Many a times, the girl was married to another tribe's boy and most of the times the boy's tribe was a traveling one and had a slim chance to meet the girl's tribe again, which might have started all the "crying" thing while giving the girl away. But anyways, if inter-tribe marriages took place, why not inter-caste (I do know inter-caste marriages do take place now a days!)
It is a known fact that a person doesn't marry in family but in other families so that better species is produced. Same was the case with marrying in other tribes. So can't this be applied to inter-caste marriages?
Inter-caste marriages should produce more vibrant (rather diverse kind of) progenies, but I don't have any way to verify my hypothesis! :(

Inter-caste marriages do produce vibrant progeny. The same is true for races as well. The classic case of the opposite is the british royal family.

Vibrant Progenies????
Are you sure that Inter-Caste marriage would lead to vibrant progenies?

I would rather suggest going interracial ;)...

@@nks: Lol, yeah! Waise bhi India has lesser no. of females and US (west), I think, has more no. of females than males, so interracial stuff would balance the equation. :) :D

i think a major reason behind inter-caste marriages and why some firmly swear by it is the presence of puritans in every kind/stratum of society. as long as people believe in maintaining the purity of their lines, inter-caste marriages will continue to be taboo.
