and no longer depends on their parents for resources.

“Arranged marriages happened in the past either
through matrimonial columns in newspapers or through
marriage brokers, priests and common friends. That was
when the e-era had not set in and matrimonial portals
were unheard of. It’s cyber age now and the Internet,
is percolating down into everyone’s personal life,
directly or indirectly.
Net as a medium for matrimony has taken off in a big
way. There are several advantages in choosing the Net.
"Ease of input, no constraint of space as each
profile gets a full page, ease in communication as e-mail
is instant and free, option of sending photographs,
ease in searching as per various criteria like age,
caste, height, etc, all profiles of different regions,
viz. South and North Indians at one place, which the
print media does not have, are important issues in making
the Net an ideal media for matrimony.
Another benefit of the Net serving as a matrimonial
medium is the online chat option on ‘marital’
portals. Chat is instant and inexpensive. Above all,
it’s reliable as the answers a person gets are
spontaneous and on the spur of the moment. This reduces
the chances of someone posing as what he or she isn’t.”
Log on and get married. It’s happening now. Matrimonial
portals are now producing results and happily married
