Jaffna Tamil marriage Brokers
In Srilanka Tamil marriage system, earlier days marriages were arranged by elders of the villages but the trend is now changing to other useful way to make the match making. In the recent times most Tamil young people don't marry between relatives because of scientific reasons of genetically spreading diseases. UP to 1970's normally they married inside their relatives, and mostly a brother's children can marry his sister's and cousin sister's children. It's prohibited to marry brother's children to another brother's children; likewise sister's children can't marry sister's children. So it's tradition to people, even the young one's to expect that a Tamil man's son is going to marry that man's sister's daughter.
The relationship between the Tamil boy 'Machchan" and the Tamil girl "machchal" are the one called between them. For the Tamil by, the girl's bother is "Machchan". In those days when some one was going to work in a dangerous profession was used to take his "machchan" to assist him. Because all Tamils believe the 'Machchan" is the active person to respond to his call for assistance for his life, when assistance needed. Mostly when going for deep sea Pearl diving jobs or deep water well cleaning like wise jobs. Now the tradition is demising as every family have one or two children.
The way of marriage arrangements too have changed. Years back boy's family used to approach the girl's family Barber and Laundry man to ask about the girl's character and about their family. They wanted to see how the girls mother behaved at water collecting points, so they can be confident the girl behavior will also look alike her mother. If they feel the girl is good then they arranged the girl and the boy to see each other at a common place like a temple, to see each other. If both of them liked each other, they proceeded with the wedding talks. Now as most of the Tamils are living far away countries, they use news paper classifieds as Virakesari, Thinakkural, and Tamil matrimonial websites like www.subamangalam.com and professional Marriage brokers.
