Second marriage no more a taboo for 50+ women
Thursday, July 01, 2010 12:27:41 PM, UNI
Bangalore: For them life begins at 50! Braving taboos and social ethos, the middle-aged Indian women are following their heart when it comes to marrying late or tying the knot the second time.
According to a study by Jeevansathi.com, Indias fastest growing matrimonial site, a number of single, divorced, widowed Indian women are open to start their life afresh at the age of 50 and above. Noticeably, 70 per cent of these profiles on the site were posted by the individual herself and 10 per cent by a relative or a friend.
''This clearly shows that the taboo of late marriage and remarriages is wearing away slowly,'' according to a release here today.
A look at the demographics of the profiles shows that 60 per cent of these profiles were women who are based in India, while 40 per cent were NRIs.
As much as 68 per cent of the women who have posted their profiles have been married earlier and look to find matches with similar backgrounds.
Jeevansathi.com Business Head Rohit Manghnani said, "With changing times people are more willing to accept the concept of second marriages", he said.
''When we looked at the marriage contacts initiated by these profiles, almost all the women have initiated contact with males who were within the age bracket of 45 to 70 years,'' he added.
