superkaur posted a topic in WHAT'S HAPPENING?Over the decade I have noticed a sharp increase in divorce rates within the Sikh community. We used to look at the white atheist/abrahamic communities and thank our lucky stars were not like their families because of the high number of divorces and family break downs. But sadly the desi/asian communities of all religions are now on par with their white counterparts. It seems to me that boys and girls especially of our generation do not take the wedding vows or the anand karaj seriously they seem to live in carefree non-religious mindset without a care for how sikh society is structured and importance of religion in holding communities and families together. The girls of today are living a feminist rebellious bubble thinking they can do what they live when they live even while living with the husbands family and if they don't let them get away with things then they are quick to separate and then divorce. They have not been trained, educated and breed to behave to live a honorable and respectful manor befitting of a Sikh woman rather they are left to their own devices of living like their white women feminist hedonist counterparts who are themselves not very family orientated and selfish at heart. What we need is a 1 month course of anyone wishing to have a sikh marriage anand karaj so that they do not take the marriage as a joke or lightly and think they can divorce when ever they feel like it. I believe the catholic church has a course like this for those who converting to cathollicism in order to marry in their churchs. Has anyone else noticed this negative trend divorce trend? And what are the possible solutions to it.
There has been a steady rise of cases where girls from Sikh families are marrying into Hindu families. Historically, culturally and traditionally this has been going on for decades however it wasn't as acceptable and the norm as it has become now Back in the days when Sikhs married with Hindu's it was with the understanding that the Hindu person would convert to Sikhism or at least brought up any kids they had as Sikhs but now it seems the opposite, since 1940s Sikhs have not be bothered about their demographics with disastrous consequences (not being forming khalistan/sikhistan during independence talks being one of them). We often see Sikhs on this forum complain of the muslim demographic take over by targeting Sikh girls and other non-muslim females for creating a high muslim population. However if we have cases where Sikh females are married of and converted to Hinduism then they also don't create Sikh kids either they tend to do what their Hindu husband and in-laws family wants have Hindu kids with Hindu names and they worship idols in mandir, this isn't a problem on a individual case basis but it is a problem when we look at the larger picture and the decline of Sikh population in India as the last census showed. Hindus are 1 billion strong, Sikhs barely 20 million in India.... You know there is something very wrong going when our so called Sikh leadership in india is not concerned and on their watch our population is not rising year on year by either conversions or birth rate. .
