Singh's finding it hard to find life partners.

Recommended Posts

Guest Singh

Hi,

This has probably been discussed before but it's something I can't really wrap my head around. I'm a singh with full beard and have cousins who are the same, we are finding it difficult to find Sikh girls as life partners. The ones I've been introduced to have a problem with me not cutting my beard and being vegetarian etc... few have asked me if I would cut my beard etc... this coming from supposedly Sikh girls and it's quite disgraceful. 

I've had more interest from girls who are not Sikh...i.e Gujarati, English girls etc.. who don't seem to care about me being a full singh, it's raising questions in my head about the future of Sikhi as a whole, our Sikh girls are moving away from our faith/traditions and adopting western values and ways above all. One of my cousins got fed up and cut his beard in the hopes to be more 'accepted', but I feel this is the wrong choice to make. I'd be lying if I said the thought didn't cross my mind but I don't want to move away from Sikhi just to find a wife, but it seems like our Sikh girls are. 

 

Suppose this is more of a rant than a question as such.

If you have taken amrit then I would definitely recommend getting married to a amritdhari Sikh girl too. I do agree though most girls do follow western traditions than Sikhi and it really does make it seem like Kaljug! Find any amritdhari girls your age and get your parents to approach her parents and they can talk to each other/bond or whatever and as long as the 2 families gel its all good and then you can talk to her and ask her questions etc. I do understand it isn't easy but just keep trying, you'll get there one day.  ^_^

 I used to believe this until I started managing my brother's matrimony profile  a year ago who received lots of interest from girls  who are looking for non trimmer , vegetarian and religious. My brother being less religious created more problem for him in finding life partner.

The main factors that people see in India for marriage is how much a guy earn , how much property his family own and what the status of his family.If by any chance .If by any chance your these factors are on weak side then even super gursikh families won't consider you as rishta

Brother Guest Singh Jee,

as I usually say, stick faithfully strong to sikhee. wahiguru is much much more important than anything anywhere.

Just keep in mind, before one is born, destiny is already tailored  to the milimetere.

And if it is written in one´s destiny to meet someone or have a spouse, believe it, it will sure happen, though that person maybe 7 seas far away, because one has karmic accoount to settle with that person, so is the same, which applies to any of our other relations.

So, relax and cool down, do not get perturbered by these thoughts.

If you eever have to worry for anything at all, just keep a check on yourself, of how much do you engage in His bhakti at His Lotus Feet.

Give yourself up wholeheartedly to Him, and He will look out for your needs as a true Mata/Pita.

Stay blessed.

Sat Sree Akal.

This is such a sad turn for Sikhi for us as sikhs being so materialistic when our gurus taught us not to and everything about Sikhi is about letting that go. This is what I don't like about so called gursikhs when they can't grasp fundamentals of Sikhi....even more so the ones that totally disregard Sikhi and it's teachings. 

But whatever happens, happens for a reason I suppose, understanding that is the difficult part, just wished there were more understanding people out there....I fear for when our kids when they will have to look for a partner considering what it's like now....though no one knows what the future may hold. 

Just got to keep head up and continue forward then.

Nowadays most Sikhs are ashamed of staying nirala (unique) when this is what Guru Gobind Singh Ji Maharaj wanted us to do. We can really tell its Kaljug.

Western traditions are getting in the way of potentially amritdhari Sikhs, the way media and bad Sangat brainwashes us into thinking about what really matters in life is working. People nowadays care more about what others think of them and to them as far as religion is concerned, as long as they go to the gurdwara once a month they think that they are a Sikh. We should be able to recognise a Sikh not only by appearance but by actions too. We should try our level-best to educate kids nowadays in order to help them in future. At least if ur parents didn't particularly help us we should help kids nowadays.

You know you don't have to marry a Sikh. Marry a Gujju or White girl then, it really doesn't matter but obviously bring your children up as Sikhs. I really don't understand why Sikh guys limit themselves to Punjabi women! 

Its not just Singhs who are having trouble finding partners, many moneh are too! Many punjabi ladies who work with my mother are always complaining how their sons (moneh) are having problems finding decent punjabi females. These days many of them drink, club and walk around wearing nothing but a table cloth. I know a few apneh who are happily married to classy, cultured Gujarati women.

Do not limit yourself and NEVER get rid of your sikhi to please a woman!

With a lot of Punjabi women being fickle with the latest trends and fashions, I thought that with the uptake of hipster beards and man buns that they would be fickle enough to be attracted to the kesh.

Agreed. Go to any gurdwara and have a look at the matrimonial list.

Firstly, people are categorised according to caste. Totally anti sikh practice in the first place. It appears that the most important criteria is in this order :

1) caste

2) height 

3) age

4) job/earnings

5) education 

Etc

And if you speak to girl's families you will no doubt have shocking conversions. Fat girls looking for lean body builders, a girl with no or minimal education looking for a doctor, lawyer or investment banker. Parents of a 5 feet tall girl looking for a guy over 6 feet......

I myself have had ridiculous conversations, with one girls dad asking my salary, another asking how much my flat was worth, one asked what car I have another querying my degrees when his daughter didn't even go to university. One even called my place of work to check I work there as he clearly thought I was lying - and then told me. Another asked where our house was in India. One asked for proof I was jatt. Proof?!?! I told him I was sikh. He said the days anyone is sikh and first and foremost he would only talk to jatts.

I don't really care about any of these things but it shows you what drives a family. And I have said it before, the single most destructive thing in our kaum, is the hijacking of sikh ethos and distortion by jattism behvkoofi

What you find is that men and women look for different things in a partner.

Reality is that biology trumps everything.

Women will look for a tall man athletic man because they want to a man with strong genes to pass on to her children. This is biologically hard-wired into women over thousands of years. In hunter-gatherer societies when you could be attacked by another tribe or by wild animals, you want a big strong man to protect you.

They will also ask for a man who is far more educated and earns more money because a woman historically would want a man that was higher in social status who can provision for her and her children. Historically, women did not have professions and were financially dependent on their husbands so therefore it would make sense for them to pick the highest social status man that they can.

Men tend to look for a younger woman (they tend not to look for social status) because of fertility.

This missed the point completely  I'm afraid  ranjeet. What is the meaning of "Sikhs" putting aside ask their fake piousness and becoming obsessed with caste. And also trying to marry off roly poly daughters to adonises?

And whilst 4"11 girls parents might want a guy of 6'4", biologically hardwired or not, why would the guy want a midget.

And the obsession with money is against everything in sikhi. Demanding a guy already has a house, does not live with his parents, and must be a doctor, banker, lawyer etc is severe nonsense. What is the girl bringing to the table? Where is her house? What is the cut off salary huh? How much is enough?

All paath goes out of the window when is matrimonial time. Like I said I was asked for proof of being jatt. My answer was that most of my relatives are uneducated and unpadh so that should be sufficient proof.

    • milk is needed for making Prasad - I could write a whole lot on why veganism is demented -another time.
    • why would anyone contemplate something so enslaving? THoughts are tangible things every bit as real as any object - meditate instead upon the liberation of moslem-occupied Aryavarta - Dharmic religions and Dharmic life cannot exist in presence of mohamadans. RamRajya-Khalsa Raj - this is the Future for the World. Xtianity is dying. islam is demented  - only Dharmic philosophy (this includes Vedanta/Sikhi/teachings of Gautam Buddh make sense.  All the sacrifices of the Early Gursikhs and the ones who valiantly fought the colonial bastards would have been for naught had all of Panjab been moslem occupied. Think, do ardas on how all of Panjab  (indeed all the af-pak lands) are to be reunified under the Dharmic banner of Sikhi, Vedanta, yoga etc. Sanatan community is working on this thru Ghar Wapsi - they have led delusional Sikhs who became xtian back to the Dharmic fold and back to Sikhi - xtianity ruins charmic village life. We are born divine - we have spark of Paramatman within us - the idea that people are born sinners creates a vicious sin-repent-guilt cycle difficult to escape. Life in halal torture lands is hell for vegetaryans/vaishnu peoples.  Guru ka Langar is pure vegetarian.  anglo jew hijacked veg movement with veganism - Milk and Milk products are healthful - we need proper dharmic dairy facilities.  The idea that any mass of land is thought to belong to anyone on basis of ethnicity/colour/creed  is stupid - the idea that any state is black or white or brown or moslem or xtian or jew is nonsensical. One Uniform Civil Code of Law (rooted in Dharmic truths) must apply without any favouritism shown to anyone. Polygamy is dysgenic and enslaving, particularly the Islamic type. Demographic warfare in hopes of establishing international caliphate must be uprooted.
    • Racial supremacists (of all stripes/colours) are ALIGNED politically with Moslem Global Caliphate aspirants. Especially the so-called 'white' supremacists/nationalists and highest echelons of Islamic theopolitical elites. Their aim is the creation of an Islamic imperium in the entire old-world landmass (eurabia where post-xtian whites become dhimmis - second-class citizens in their ancestral lands) and this will coincide with the anglostates (the five sisters - NZAUSUSACANUK) being 100 percent anglowhite. Latin/S. America to be ruled by white origin Hispanics who will continue to lord it over the indigenous browns of South America. India BhartVarsh Aryavarta moslems see as 'unfinished business' and will be part of the moslem caliphate where brownz in our ancestral lands will become slaves (again) - Guru Nanak started the work of kicking lowlyarabitch language out of Greater Historical India - these moslems desire to lord it over Bharat di Janata again - their eyes are on all of Kashmir and regaining all of Panjab, especially Fatehgarh region of Sirhand (head of India - sir is head and hand or hind is India). Now, why Brown people referred to as 'easter worshippers' instead of 'christians' - well 'Christian' has  or used to have connotations with pious godly people whereas these Lankans are just converts - only slaves convert after all - there is a racial pecking order in desert creeds with albino  uk white at top, then arab white, central Asian white etc.  Myself I keep distance from converted hindu xtians or white xtians because they admit they are born sinners - I prefer good sangat not that of born sinners. Islam and the racialists wish to reenslave everyone. More slaves alive than ever before in history. This is mostly de facto slavery -w ith the racialists and islam teaming up, we'll be de jure slaves. What we have on our side is Ultimate Truth. Desert creeds are hollow - created by and for born sinners and slaves. Dharmic religions offer spiritual and material liberation and complete freedom. Dharmic ethics is sublime - desert creeds only have lists of what not to do. THese desert creed adherents are descendants of old time Raksh mlecch populations who were kicked out of INdia for failing to adhere to Vedic standards of morality. Sikhi is the pinnacle of Aryadharmic Thought.  
    • It would be terrible. How would we have fared in a military ruled state? Pakistans always have military coups where dictators rule for 10+ years. Plus we would fear suicide bombers. I think pakistan was listed as the country with most suicide bombings in public places. Also taliban stopped women from attending schools in the frontier areas.  And we would live in a place where paan would be spit in the streets.
