partners, as is common in much of the Western world. Arranged marriages and marriages
within the family has been the usual norm in Indian families. Love marriages are much
less common, although this has been drastically changing over the years. The essential
marriage broker is a volunteer (person who does introduction between bride’s and
groom’s family without any monetary consideration), or a professional, who used to be
involved in most arranged marriages, or a blend of a priest and a barber. In the last
decade the print matrimonials gained an upper hand. With the internet boom in India, the
picture of a marriage broker with a huge diary with tucked-in photographs is slowly
phasing out, giving way to a gamut of online matrimonial sites.

language, and location needed that the internet suits many potential Indian husbands and
wives perfectly. A service provider may use registration profiles to filter preferences and
may run several different portals to cater for needs like different languages
