  10. Your sample size is men in your age group. This group is not likely to have enough information, or a long-term perspective, as their friends have not gone through this as examples. But among the 30+ group, there is a sizable percentage of men (20% or so) who have seen what the divorce laws are, assess the risks, and decide not to marry.
  11. This is probably part of it — my sample size does consist mostly of men in my age group. Another big part of it is probably that my sample consists mostly of men of a certain status/class, a class in which they still feel a lot of pressure to marry. However, I still don’t think it’s as drastic a picture as you’re painting. Of course, this is anecdotal. I have work to do, or I’d continue this.
  12. For what it’s worth, I can guarantee you that it will never become glaringly apparent to me — it’s not going to happen in my circles (this is just simple fact, I’m in a vastly different demographic than are many).

  16. 20% does not seem drastic. But it does distort the whole landscape for all women (i.e. 100 women competing for every remaining 80 men).

  18. I mean what about when/if you go to Indian events, don’t you feel out of place not being married yet?
  19. As you know, Indians are programmed to never question a person who has a) lighter skin, b) money, c) speaks in English and uses big words.

  22. 5th Horseman – I don’t reeeeally agree with all your points about Indians. But I do agree Indians do tend to have a cultural superiority complex. Which blinds them from some very real issues out there unfortunately…I hope you’re just pointing out the bad stuff to be brief, there is a flip side of good to some of those things too.
  23. So… what about non-Indians in happy marriages? Maybe the better question is… do you think it’s possible for anyone to be in a happy marriage ever?
