19 Really Hilarious Excuses That Indian Parents Give To Convince Their Children To Marry

Although marriages are said to be made in heaven, our Indian parents come up with some 'very serious reasons' for their children to get married that are so funny that we just can not resist laughing out loud!

To prove the point, an online dating platform, quackquack.in recently undertook a serious project with extremely hilarious outcomes. They asked a few people why their parents wanted them to get married and what they revealed was just too funny! The website mocked at the logic that most parents use to compel their children to marry stating, “In India, marriages happen when rich meets rich, caste approves caste, kundali matches kundali. It’s time we chucked the ‘Indian Marriage Logic’ and tell everyone that we, today’s generation, are #happilysingle and can find our #partnersbychoice!" We bring you here a list of these utterly hilarious reasons that people said their parents used, to convince them to get married.
