Hi Rohan -

FYI we've published a sample list of partner visa interview questions that you and others may find helpful:

Northam & Associates - Sample Partner Visa Interview Questions

While these are not unique to the Indian embassy, we've found that the questioning across many countries is similar, as it should be if DIAC's processing is conducted uniformly across different posts and areas.

Hope this helps -

Best,

Mark Northam

Hi Rohan -

Good point! Certainly the pre-marriage questions are different in those cases. Just a question - what percentage of Indian marriages would you estimate today are arranged? Have always been curious.

Best,

Mark Northam
First of all i would like to make it clear that majority of "Arranged Marriage" in India are no more "Forced Marriage".

Some new facts and figures have emerged about arranged marriages in India after Unicef conducted research and released the findings.

Most notable fact is that there seems to be no decrease in arranged marriages with the percentage steady at a whopping 90%.

India's divorce rate is still at a very modest 1.1%. Although this percentage is well and truly rising, it still compares rather well to other countries, most notably the US, a country with a divorce rate of 50% :eek:.


Although arranged marriages are still prevalent across the globe, nowhere in the world are they quite as prevalent as in India. With Unicef estimating that 55% of all marriages in the world are arranged it seems that the marital situation in India is not that unusual at all.
