Equality in the relationship is most important for girls while choosing a partner: survey shows
A Bharat Matrimony matchmaking survey to find out “What girls expect from a life partner” saw more than 1000 women participants share their opinion.
When asked “what’s more important to you” while choosing a partner, 44% of the women respondents said “Equality is most important in a relationship.” In response to “Do you believe there’s any work strictly defined as a man’s or a woman’s job” a whopping 90% of the respondents feel that everything is equal be it career, household chores or baby care. As for “What are the things your partner must do,” 74% of them feel it’s more important for their partner to take up equal responsibility in bringing up the kids. 86% feel that taking care of their parents as his own is more important. Apart from this, women also want their partner to stand by their choices.
Talking about things they’re ok with if their men don’t do, 68% of women are okay with their husband not dropping them at their office every day and 54% are fine if they don’t join them for shopping. When asked “which things you’d not let go of,” around 64% said they will not sacrifice religious beliefs, 35% said they cannot let go of their passion for things including dance and music.
