Where the Tamil speaking community keeps it's identity for their language and culture for long years. People of this origin living far away places use Matrimony webs, local Newspaper classifieds and matrimonial brokers to find partner for their children. They take much care to find out whether the bride or bridegroom had already married and divorced as many divorced people hide it to make another marriage. Many parents take time to find same cast partner for their children as most of the Jaffna people are still looking after their cast.
