Hindu Arranged Marriage within the Indian American Community
MetadataShow full item record
As families started to migrate out of India they brought the custom of arranged marriage with them to the United States. The author focuses on how Hindus in America are adjusting to the far-flung geography of Hindu communities, the role of caste and dowry, and technology. In addition to a literature review, the author also interviewed a group of mothers and second generation men and women between the age of 15 and 30.
