A study by matrimony site Jeevansathi.com has revealed that Malayalee, Bengali, Marathi and Gujarati communities show the highest affinity to marry within their own community, while the Hindi speaking communities of Delhi, UP and MP are considerably open to inter-community marriages.

The study further states that although 86 per cent of Bengalis, 57 per cent of Punjabis and 81 per cent of Gujaratis and Marathis initiated contacts within their own communities, the second choice for all these communities is Hindi-Delhi. An interesting trend that has been noticed is that both Hindi-UP and Hindi-MP communities initiate maximum contacts with Hindi-Delhi communities.

It has also been observed that people residing in their native states have higher preferences of marrying into their respective communities as compared to individuals who are settled elsewhere. For instance, while 84 per cent of Marathis residing in Maharashtra contact people in their own community only 66 per cent Marathis residing elsewhere initiate marriage contacts within Marathis.

Vivek Khare, business head, Jeevansathi.com, has said, “With changing times people are willing to get out of the community boundaries and find someone with shared mindsets but in most arranged marriages the choices are still community centric. This is primarily because people from the same community share a high level of comfort in terms of language, cultural values and traits.”
