Review

I ordered this book since the title sounded catchy. The book was really interesting since there are real life anecdotes, small things that will help you if you're going to get married (either to your boyfriend or an arranged one). It tells you little things that you must be ready for. Of course it's not an exhaustive list of things that can go wrong or what to expect when you're getting married, but it does give you an idea of what are the important things that you should focus on, how long you can keep searching for Mr. Right, how arranged and love marriages are different, coping with a marriage in an arranged setup, etc. There are some laugh out loud funny instances and some not so realistic stuff too. But all in all, a fun and informative read for anyone! --Sri Uma Aisvarya Aug 21, 2013

Nice book,provides insights into the world of marriage ... its a mixed bag of stories ...i bet everyone of us can relate to one or the other story in it :-) go ahead n buy it.... --Smitha Satyan Nov 26, 2013

I really enjoyed this read. There's very pragmatic advice for people who are not just looking to get married, but also married. I had a love marriage, but could relate to a lot of things that are said in this book. In some places, it's hilarious. Some, it's moving. Kudos! --Madhumita K Oct 2, 2013

Product Description

If you’re an Indian woman and old enough to legally bear children, chances are that an overweight relative has asked you, while fondly stroking their pot belly, ‘When am I going to eat at your wedding?’

The modern Indian woman’s attitude to marriage―and especially to arranged marriage―is a confused one. As traditional matchmaking methods and internet chat rooms come together to build matrimonial websites, our parameters have changed, but the time-honoured practice of arranged marriage sticks.

Hitched explores in depth the considerations matrimony should involve, and the issues that can crop up at different stages of an arranged marriage. A cross-section of women―those who married young, married late, married the first man their parents parked before them, or married out of caste in an arranged setup―open up about experiences ranging from the frightening to the hilarious and the awww-inspiring.

The book gives you perspective (many perspectives, actually) on what a potential arranged marriage could be for a not very traditional Indian woman. If you find yourself frantically looking for information on what to expect from the arranged marriage rigmarole then this is the book for you.
