method to find spouses for her own kids, once a match is found the kid can view a picture and read the Bio Data, but previous marriages the families pushed the women into the marriages even if they didn’t want to marry or like that specific guy. “This is the guy you are getting married to”. But the India families here in America are more open to letting the women and men have a say. But they are “Preferred to be from India”. Once a suiter is chosen the male puts a deposit down on the soon to be wife a sort of “on hold” method. With wedding planning the mother of the daughter would buy the man a gift, maybe like a 3-piece suit or something of that nature. And as a proposal not just the man proposes to the woman, the man’s whole family proposes to the woman as a way to except her into the family. India people prefer to marry into India people because they feel the non-India person wouldn’t understand their culture differences and communication would be difficult. But as time goes India people are more open to new ways. India people have to be married to live with you, so friends can’t live with each other. Cousins can’t live in the same house, or friends etc. Even modern India people living here in America follow this. A 1900 mentality of marriage was to marry your daughter off at a young age so you dint have to raise the child or pay to raise them. They would be married and the new husband’s family would raise the child until an older age to get an official marriage. This is still done in some poor areas of India and has been used primarily by the Muslims who also allow older men to marry these children. Sadly, some children don’t survive the consummation of the marriage. This is not specifically and India thing but mostly of some religions like Muslims and poor people lacking the education of the modern ways.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
