    Wahe guru ji ka khalsa ki fateh

    Random question, but I just read loads of articles on people from the UK emracing Sikhism. I told my mom about this, and she was delighted. But later that day she asked me, how do these young men and woman get married. Do they marry non sikhs?? or remain single??

    I dont expect replies as its probably a silly question as no two people are the same hna.

    I think your mother's question is adorable! She must be a really caring person. Sounds as if she is thinking well -- young people will want to get married - but how will they find Sikh partners. I bet it is not easy.

    A good question too. Some certainly must meet other Sikhs and marry. Others may have already been married. Some would marry into Punjabi Sikh families.

    Arranged marriages would be a problem in some cases I would think. Because it is not the Western way, and Westerners converting to Sikhism would not have pind, or family associates, in which most marriages are arranged.

    So she has me wondering how they do that too.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
