When they were asked what was the biggest benefit of getting married, 25.7 percent men and 34.7 percent women said "emotional anchor", 33.7 percent men and 20.1 percent women said "financial stability", followed by 40.6 percent men and 45.2 percent women who said "lifelong companion".

Gourav Rakshit, CEO of Shaadi.com, said in a statement: "We have always believed that marriage in India is about 'when' and not 'if'. It is very encouraging to see that the youth of today look at marriage in a positive light and, more importantly, they have a realistic view of life after marriage.

"Finding a partner who can offer you emotional as well as financial compatibility is very important for a relationship to be successful."
