The per­ils of on­line mat­ri­mo­nial ser­vices

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL -

This is with ref­er­ence to the story that ap­peared in South Asia’s Au­gust is­sue about mat­ri­mo­nial web­sites. While I agree that mat­ri­mo­nial web­sites are a good way to find a match for all those look­ing for a life part­ner, I have to say that it does not come with­out its own risks. For starters, it is quite easy to fool some­one on the in­ter­net. One can never know for sure who the per­son sit­ting at the other side of the com­puter screen is since cre­at­ing a fake iden­tity is child’s play. Th­ese sites may be re­li­able but at the end of the day, even they can­not guar­an­tee the per­fect match. Also, if some­thing goes wrong, then there is no one to hold ac­count­able. So if you en­list the ser­vices of a mat­ri­mo­nial web­site, make sure that you do your back­ground check first.
