A sweet ending for a long search... I'm Abhishree, a 23 yr old Marwadi girl from the Maheshwari community. This is the story of how I found my life partner. My parents started looking out for a suitable groom for me about a year back, as soon as I completed my MBA. I wasn't too keen on getting married immediately, as I wanted to work and focus on progressing in my career for some time, before eventually getting married. But my parents convinced me that it would take a while before we could narrow down on a suitable match.
My parents tried the usual channels for proposals.- the matchmaking auntie, family and business connections and marriage portals. We shortlisted some profiles and met about 3 guys and their respective families in the last year, but nothing seemed to click.
Most families that we met were too traditional and not keen on a working bride. Another one we met and liked were not too keen on Marwadi rituals at the wedding and wanted a registered marriage. Being the eldest daughter out of the 3 in my family, my parents had always planned a grand wedding for me.
I had almost given up hope of finding my life-partner, when a friend told me about a new matrimonial portal which focuses on Marwadi's. I wasn't too sure, but logged on just to check. To my surprise, it was user-friendly, had different sub-sections for marwadi castes and uploading one's profile was rather easy. Within 3 days of posting my profile, I got around 9 responses out of which I shortlisted 2. My parents and I discussed the profiles and decided to meet one of the guys. I'm very happy to report that when we met Sagar and his family, everything seemed to fall in place. In about 2 meetings, we decided to get married :)
I'm got married in the end of last year, and I really want to express my gratitude to Marwadishaadi.com for helping me find my dream mate.
