Jain women dating
I was more precocious when it came to affairs of the heart, having enjoyed my first kiss with cute Matt from the football squad at 14.
Perhaps it was that same spirit of romantic adventurism that led me, shortly after college, to go on the first of these “introductions,” though I agreed to my parents’ setup mainly with an eye toward turning it into a story for friends.
He’d met his wife through a newspaper ad my parents had taken out.
I lodged my protest against him and arranged marriage by getting ragingly intoxicated and blowing smoke rings in his face. Maybe, but I didn’t want to be marriageable back then. But for Indians, there’s no way to escape thinking about marriage, eventually.They have the highest female literacy rate, 90.6.% compared with the national average of 54.16%.The sex ratio in the 0-6 age group is the second lowest for Jains (870 females per 1000 males).So while we, as modern Indian women, eschew the idea of marrying without love, the idea that we’re being too picky tends to nag even more than it otherwise would.Still, for years, I didn’t want to get married the way my brother did.
