Woman Speaks From Experience & Reveals What It’s Like Being In The Arranged Marriage Market

Those who have never had an arranged marriage and don’t plan on one either will never know the kind of pain the entire process is. Imagine your qualities being picked apart and scrutinized bit by bit. Imagine being compared to other potential partners. Imagine being told that you are too dark, too fair, too fat, too thin, overqualified, underqualified and what not. Imagine facing rejection from absolute strangers for bizarre reasons. It is unimaginably hard and tends to take a toll on a person’s mental health.

A woman, who is currently meeting potential grooms took to Twitter to share what it is like being in an arranged marriage setup. She revealed how she is being rejected by the mothers of grooms because she isn’t young enough or doesn’t look young enough.

All this she has to tolerate just out of respect for her parents and nothing else. She doesn’t even want to get married in the first place!

Several people who have been in her shoes responded by sharing similar experiences from their personal lives. While some took a firm stand against their parents, others had to endure their relatives trying to search for a match for them.

I can never fathom what it must be like to have impressive qualifications, a job, and a satisfying salary and have someone reject you because you don’t look like an 18-year-old anymore!
