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.

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.
