Matchmaking service www.shaadi.com conducted a survey to understand the mindset of singles in India and their views involving marriage. The online poll by Shaadi.com received over 12,500 responses from single Indians aged between 25 and 34 years.
When single Indian women were asked “If they have any conditions before saying yes to marriage”, 71.3 percent said “Yes”, 5.8 percent said “No” and 22.9 percent said “Will have to think about it”.
Some of the conditions that were part of the findings in the survey include that they wouldn’t want to change their surname post marriage, would like to stay independent post marriage, would like men to take up responsibility of the family and they’d like their husbands to treat their parents as their own.
