New Delhi: According to data revealed by a matchmaking site, a large number of singles in Delhi-NCR want to get married within the same religion, but community is not an important factor.

The data from Shaadi.com highlights that 96 per cent singles would like a partner from the same religion. However, this disparity reduces when it comes to community preferences, with only 58 per cent singles saying they prefer their own community, whereas 42 per cent were community agnostic.

The lack of affinity to a community further expands to the occupation as well. With gradual changes in our culture and increased exposure, similar occupation is no longer a preference when looking for a life partner. User data reveals that 83 per cent singles are looking for a partner from a different occupation.

Additionally, Delhites are looking to get married outside the city. Seventy nine per cent of the user base, prefer a partner from a city apart from Delhi.

“Overall the data reveals that there is a gradual shift in mindsets with singles playing a more active role towards marriage,” said the matchmaking organisation.  

A survey conducted earlier also showed that 59 per cent singles would like to plan towards their marriage. Gourav Rakshit, CEO, Shaadi.com said, “Marriage is no longer as traditional an affair as it used to be.”

 The driver of the process of finding a right partner has changed from family to self, and with this expectations from a future partner have also changed. Passive paradigms of love and arranged marriage have been replaced by active planned marriage.”
