Survey Says Majority of Young Women Prefer Arranged Marriage
March 21st, 2009

Majority of young women in India country prefer arranged marriages with parents' consent while only less than one fourth opts for the "love" route to choose their life partners, a survey said.

The survey of women in the age group of 20-30 carried out in various cities, including the four metros, by leading matrimony portal Bharatmatrimony, also revealed that 59 per cent of the respondents consider parent's decision the most important priority in finalising marriage.

Only 20 per cent of the respondents felt that profession was the most important aspect in finalising their life partner while ten per cent said caste was the most important priority and 11 per cent said family nuclear or joint family - was the most preferred.

About 49 per cent preferred arranged marriage while 33 per cent 'arranged love marrige' and a meagre 18 per cent of the respondents favoured 'love' marriage.

The survey titled "Woman and Marriage" was conducted by ahead of the Women's Day and 1,058 respondents were covered in Chennai, Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Pune, Madurai, Mysore, Tiruchirappalli, Coimbatore and Jaipur, a release said here today.

On the right age for a woman to get married, about 71 per cent said 21-24 was the ideal age for marriage.

Interestingly, the survey said that about 93 per cent of women were interested to study or work after marriage.

The survey also said that about 55 per cent women prefer to search life partners through contacts via friends and relatives.
