American dating traditions

Some Indian men will date a single parent and some won't date a woman who is a single parent.This holds true for dating outside of the Indian culture.

Dating for this purpose would not be appropriate in India.If they are allowed to date they are generally only allowed to date other Indians who either are family friends, same last name, same village, same religion, or some type of doctor.For many parents the disproval rests on the fear that the values and traditions of a mixed relationship will negate the passing down of religious and cultural values as well as traditions for future generations and as a result would end that legacy.In general, the people of India tend to marry within their community whether that community exists within India or those of Indian decent living in other countries.While arranged marriages are still common in India, love marriages have gained in popularity.
