Profile Created By?

In December 2016, we conducted a survey to understand what people think about the idea of getting married. We found out that about 20.5% men and 23.1% women said ‘can’t wait to get married’ and 12.2 % men and 10.3% women said, ‘not for me’, while 18.2% men and 13.2 % women stated that they were ‘not sure’.

The stereotype exists that people get married as they are forced to.  At, we have always believed that getting married is a choice and you should get married only when you’re ready for it.

Parents and siblings only created a total of 23% profiles on in 2016.
