Hi there,

I am a Canadian Sociology Student looking for some information on Tamil Marraige Culture for a comparative study.

I tryed googling it without much luck, and the library was useless, lol :(

There seems to be quite a lot of negative information about the Tamil marraige culture, and I need factual information.

I need to know specifically about:

Marital Patterns

Average Age of Marraige for Men and Women
Divorces Trends and Rates
Marraige Trends and Rates

Family Roles

The roles Men, Women and Children take within the average Tamil family household.

Family Size

Specifically, live in extended family
specifically, average amount of children

Function Society Expects

what it the cultural standard for the roles, men and women each have within the family structure?

Any info would help, even first hand knowledge or opinion, because it is difficult to find accurate and objective information on this particular culture.

Respectfully, and Thankfully,
A Canadian Student
