In our culture, marriage is seen as the cure for all problems, real or imagined. Marriage seems to be the ultimate aim of most people. Their life starts and ends with the aim of getting married. Daughters are groomed to become dutiful wives and sons are taught to get good returns on investment when they get married.
The whole community gets involved in getting a boy or girl on the brink of adulthood, married. Chacha, chachi, distant cousins – all look at the girl or boy (who has just completed education) as prospective brides or grooms at the wedding they would soon like to attend. Getting married is also termed as ‘settling down’ but how can anyone be settled when they are in the 20s or even 30s?
Marriage is an age-old tradition, and comes with its share of benefits and problems, but the reasons why Indian parents want their wards to get married are often hilarious. So here is a compilation of 25 hilarious (but often real) reasons why parents want to play match-maker to their kids.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Maybe Animal is going to make Ranbir the superstar he yearns to be, but is this the kind of legacy his grandfather and granduncles would wish for?
I have no intention of watching Animal. I have heard it’s acting like a small baby screaming and yelling for attention. However, I read some interesting reviews which gave away the original, brilliant and awe-inspiring plot (was that sarcastic enough?), and I don’t really need to go watch it to have an informed opinion.
A little boy craves for his father’s love but doesn’t get it so uses it as an excuse to kill a whole bunch of people when he grows up. Poor paapa (baby) what else could he do?
I was wondering; if any woman director gets inspired by this movie and replicates this with a female protagonist, what would happen?. Oh wait, that’s the story of so many women in this world. Forget about not giving them love, you have fathers who try to kill their daughters or sell them off or do other equally despicable things.
