I had a friend (Chinese) who was in a relationship with an Indian expat, fastforward a year later - they were talking about settling down. The girl was even seriously thinking of converting to his faith. Then he went home for one month and came back married. :???:

Apparently his mother had a bride all ready waiting for him and he didn't have the heart to break his mummy's heart. My poor friend was left with a broken heart.

Are arrange marriage still the norm among Indian expats?

As much as time & technology has advanced, indians are still very much traditional at heart. Arranged marraiges are often pushed onto them by their parents & relatives.

Still, the only responsible thing to do is not to lead anyone on.

Hope your friend is healing well and send her a big hug for me on my behalf. Guess we would be considered travellers of the same path once... :)

Firstly...this thread is about Indian guys.
Secondly...She is Indian (local) and her family is quite conservative (makes things simple) althought I am sure she would not mind any other race since she is quite open-minded.

I went down the same road too!
His mother made him choose me or his inheritance :devil:
Obviously he didn't pick me...but he wanted to hang on to me on the side. So I "borrow" a friend's fling just to make him understand that I was SO-OVER :shooting: him but I ended up marrying my alibi :in love:

What's your story morning glory?
