Well, we live in a society where marriage is not valued, only for looking on the wedding day.
We live in a society where we no longer fix things, we just throw away things once they lose their usefulness.
The human gene pool shows that at least 80 percent of men historically never had children, where at least 80 percent of women did.
What this means before the advent of marriage, one man would have many women to have children with. This is what happens in the animal kingdom, where the alpha male will have his share of the females.
The reality is (I might sound sexist, but it is largely true). Women have sexually selected men for resources and genetic material ).
What has happened is that women no longer value marriage with men because they do not require resources so for a lot of them all that is left is the Alpha stud.
The vast majority of men are not alpha studs, it is a very tiny percentage. Women will always go for a man that is the highest value, even if she herself are not of the same value.
Society seems to be regressing back to the pre-marital age (like back to hunter gather type society).
It is very dangerous because potentially there maybe a lot of unmarried men in society.
From a Sikhi point of view, we are supposed to live a ghristi Jeevan life and the regression of society means it is going to be increasing difficult.
Well, I'm not jatt and I'll say this much.
After the Vienna murder in 2009, the Ravidassia community protested in London with placards demanding the removal of kirpans from Sikhs. A year or so later, a branch of the Ravidassia community advocated to separate Bhagat Ravidass Ji's bani from the Guru Granth Sahib Ji and to establish a separate granth to be installed in Ravidass Sabha's. These would still loosely be referred to as gurdwarae....
The census was in 2011.
Make of that what you want.
On a different note, Afghan Sikhs do indeed marry first cousins. That's not to say, every single Afghan Sikh will marry his/her cousin, but, the behaviour is indeed prevalent in that community.
