I didn't marry my daughter to his parents:(5)
This is very insolvable article. Sorry to read this. I agree that kids born here are very honest and they don't understand our culture. Best solution is- kids born here must marry to kids born here. Secondly, those kids born in India they can marry Indians and they can adjust their culture.

Parents who like to stay with their kids, before marriage they must clarify that girl have to stay with son's parents. If girl is agreed then this will be fine. We should not enforce the thum rule that boy's parents have the right to live in with his son.

I still did not understand why boy's parents feel more uncomfortable that they have spent more money and time on their son as compare to girl's parents. If both kids are professional why this question rise. Wait.. 10-15 years more, new generation will abolish this third world country old tradition.
