Arranged marriages work out for a lot of people and that's awesome. But, to the unlucky few for whom attempting it was just a nightmare doused in awk-sauce, know that you're not alone.
This unfortunate example that validates Facebook stalking.

This family who rejected a girl for being a lefty.
Quora user Purwa Rojinder's friend, Kruti, was left much better off when the boy's family rejected her because, "Kruti is lefty, we don't want a lefty progeny." As if lefties didn't have enough to worry about.
This girl who had to survive several levels of misogyny and trivia quizzes... And that was before the dowry demands.
The boy's family told this Quora user that she would have to stay in her room while menstruating, be home before the evening lamp is lit to perform pujas and even stay home instead of working. She was even subjected to hilarious trivia quizzes before being asked to "gift" a car and jewellery because apparently, only houses and money are counted as dowry.
