We see our parents in india being married at the tender age of 16-20 and now we cannot imagine that so but now the young boys and girls first want to eastabilish themselves up to 30's and then they think of marriage.The traditional flavour of marriage is loosing out to proffessional and commercial aspects?So many years ago a marriage was 7 days rigrous festivity and enjoyment .today we see these are 1-2 day affairs.

you are absolutely right devenpintu.but since the time is changing very fast and its a very competitive time now.indians are very capable of doing a lot many tihngs but lack of opportunity people are nt able to do so.everyone needs to make a career of their own to earn their living.previously time was different.everyone had work for themselves.people had lot many children those days so now thecompetion has increased.finding a job today is very tough.then how will one feed his spouse and kids.that's why till one is settled in life they donot want to go for marriage.now nobody has time ,so nobody can affored to spend 7 days affair now.i guess after 2-3 generation people will not have even 1 day to spare for their marriage.but i guess this is all life.
