"Some 64 percent of girls in Kerala, 54 percent in Gujarat and 53 percent in Andhra Pradesh got married before they turned 25," said the survey.



"States like Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh have also witnessed an increase in the girls opting for early marriages... Almost all states show more than 10 percent increase," added the survey.



"While it's a common belief that women today are comfortable with late marriages, the survey shows that most young ladies wish to get married before reaching the age of 25. This could be due to various socio-economic factors and also due to a personal need for companionship," said Rohit Manghnani, business head at Jeevansathi.com.
