Foreigners are Marrying Indian Girls through Indian Matrimonial sites
On a recent visit to Bangkok I shared taxi with an American with an Indian wife. The girl was about half the age of the man and they were married for over 5 years. I later learnt that the marriage had been consummated through Bharat matrimony. India has its own brand of dating and matrimonial sites that cater to the Indian Diaspora all over the world. The prominent sites are Bharatmatrimony.com; simply marry .com and jeevansathi.com. A new phenomenon has now emerged in the form of membership of these sites by foreigners. Foreigners include mostly men from the west, particularly from the USA, Canada and Western Europe. There is hardly any membership from East Asia or China and South America.
