Engaged Before Birth? Not Anymore

Arranged marriage is still a norm in majority of Nepali households. Parents, elders pick out life partner for their son/daughter, decision is largely based on social status compatibility, caste, financial arrangement and nowadays many are looking at employment situation too.

Some families take the tradition of arranged marriage even further- their kids are engaged to be married before they are born.

Thanks to changing society and raising awareness, this tradition may finally disappear.

Global Press Institute has more on this bizarre tradition and it’s slow but sure decline.
