This is a widespread problem that is impacting a lot of males of that age group, Sikh and non-Sikh.
In our community, divorce rates have increased and I imagine it puts off a lot of our males from getting married.
I suspect that a lot of Amritdharis probably been rejected so many times that they have probably given up.
Historically they have done some good and some bad for mankind. They colonised huge parts of the world and enslaved many Africans. Wiped out the natives in America and Australian aboriginals. On the other hand they built roads, irrigation and railways in India.

Suppose that someday I decide to take Amrit. Some of the K's are "easy" to maintain, while others might prove problematic. I'm currently studying to become a nurse, but do not know what my eventual setting will be. If I wind up working in surgery, having an untrimmed beard may not only be prohibited, but dangerous. Are there special dispensations for such things? Do any of you know of individuals who have dealt with such issues? Would it preclude me from taking Amrit? Similarly, what's the legal process like for changing one's name?
