Arranged Marriages
  • In 2006 95% of marriages in India were arranged.
  • Many girls in India get married at a very young age.
  • The parents of the girls want to get rid of them, so they start looking for a husband when she's at the age of 8 years.
  • They get married so early, because if they pass the teen ages it's difficult to get them married. And one other reason is that the marriage costs much money.
  • At the day of the marriage, most of the women see their husbands for the first time.

dowry
Dowry
  • Dowry or Dahej  is the payment in cash or/and kind by the bride's family to the bridegroom' s family along with the giving away of the bride in  Indian marriage .
  • Kanyadanam is an important part of  Hindu marital rites.
  • Kanya  means daughter, and dana means gift. 
  • Dowry originated in upper caste families as the wedding gift to the bride from her family. 
  • The dowry was later given to help with marriage expenses and became a form of insurance in the case that her in-laws mistreated her. 
  • An article appearing in the New York Times in 2003 told of the fact that dowries are now , but the practice is still very much alive.
