“Arranged marriage” is a term which instantly invites condemnation and cynicism in the mind’s of today’s youth. From lending a sympathetic ear to my cousin, cribbing about the stereotypical IIT and IIM graduates coming over to meet her with their unreasonable demands, I couldn’t help but wonder if today’s scenario of arranged marriage is truly as horrifying as the highly dramatised TV shows depict it to be.
After endless conversations and research later we came up with a list of encounters that definitely made us say a big “NO” to arranged marriage, but we’ll let you be the judge. For those unlucky women who had to suffer through these awkward AF meets, just know that you’re not alone.
1.The Oral Test
Giving oral tests in school were nerve racking enough and unfortunately, a fellow sister had to appear for this test once again when the future in laws (no thanks!) showed up. After grilling the girl with the usual sexist and highly predictable questions the mother of the boy asked the girl to read out a paragraph from a paper. The purpose – to check if she stammers or lied about her credentials and education.
2.The Name Conundrum
It’s just as doltish and odd as it sounds. Yet another girl got rejected and the reason this time was her name. The girl’s name was the same as the boy’s distant aunt’s name. So of course they did what any normal person would, they asked the girl to change her name. Taking up the boy’s surname was just not cutting it for them so they decided they should change her first name to something more suitable to their tastes. However the girl refused and asked the family to leave.
3.The Lefty syndrome
From the moment the prospective groom and his family walked in, they were fixated on letting the girl and her family know how financially affluent they were. Sadly for them, they could only achieve this by constantly asserting that they own two cars and their son bagged a job in the United States. As if their boastful words and disrespectful questions didn’t serve as a revelation to their character, the reason they stated for rejecting the girl was – “ She is a lefty and we don’t want our grandchildren to be lefty’s as well ”.
4.The Strip Tease
This has got to be the most horrifying experience I have come across. After a series of awkward questions, the boy’s mother requested the girl’s mother that she would like to speak to her alone. While the girl waited in the living room with the rest of the family members, already embarrassed of how the meeting was going, the boy’s mother did the unthinkable. She told the girl’s mother that she would like to meet the girl in private so she could check whether the girl was “Just as fair all over her body”. The girl was basically being asked to strip all her clothing so that the boy’s mother could check if she is fair all over, doesn’t have any scars or discolouration anywhere and also check whether she she was a virgin. The girl’s mother refused and they were asked to leave. The girl was left in tears and shock.
If these weren’t enough, this video will definitely make you cringe and gawk at the bizarre reasons why women are constantly facing rejection for arranged marriage.
