    I hold the same value for success and relish achievements, so no complaints there. But it's the family dynamic that I do not understand. I have Indian friends who rush into it so quickly (parental pressure maybe).
    And that's my point. It depends on the family. My family is chill. One of my friends is a Patel, and they kinda expect him to marry another Patel.

    oh god, don't start this again.


    I mean, I like Punjabi girls, but I know what I want out of my life, and I think only another Gujarati could fit that role. Kind of like an enzyme and a substrate. Punjabis would be like competitive inhibitors for me. lmfao. im such a nerd.
    I'm willing to change the shape of my active site slightly. LOOL, when are you going to get married?

    That's where everything just goes messed up as I would want my children to be raised as Muslims. However, that would not work out as if I marry a Hindu/Sikh guy he would want them to be raised as Hindus.

    What makes you think that?

    How are we more "fun"? 😮
    The personality in general. I have a lot of Punjabi friends, trust me they're hilarious. In fact my used to be best friend was Punjabi. Also, the weddings are so hyper, I love it. You have to practically drag a guju to dance..

    Not necessarily - some Hindu guys might say teach the kids about both religions and let THEM choose, which would be my stance on it.

    And that's something I couldn't compromise on, because being Hindu is what makes me, me. The way I was raised, being Hindu wasn't just a religion, it was a culture, a way of life. My parents aren't religious, but we live Hindu lives... Not sure if you'll understand...

    You wouldn't be saying that if you saw my cousin's wedding earlier last year - everyone was eager for it to start Lmao

    What about things like circumcision?

    Abrahamic faiths are pushy. I reckon Hinduism/Sikhism would fall to the wayside in that sort of relationship as they are more passive.

    I wouldn't say that's all of us. Me, though, spot on. Unless it's garba/dandiya, I will be the last one on the dance floor- if that.

    Oh wow. Well yeah I wouldn't mind that either. After all, there is no compulsion in religion and Islam says that. Children should be able to choose. Being a Muslim myself, I would want my children to be Muslims too but suppose I marry a Hindu guy and we agree on teaching both religions and letting the child chose, that would be okay for me tbh.

    True, that would be one issue, but I guess it also depends on how strict the person belonging to the Abrahamic faith is.
