My parents are worried about my marriage and have registered me in a marriage bureau for a suitable match. We have been asked all the details of my education, where I work etc. My parents paid them 2 lakhs to search for a good boy but nothing good has happened so far.

It has been 2 years since my parents have registered me in the marriage bureau. They send bios of boys and they are all useless. When we speak to the boy's family we find out that they are not what they seem. I don't think looking for a match through marriage bureaus is a reliable way. What do you think?

You shouldn't have to pay that kind of money to help with your search. Marriage is the most important decision in one's life but its as much about discovering what you like as about finding the person that completes you!

2 lakhs is way too much.Last i remember is they charge around 5k or something.Try to go to one of the good ones.And not all profiles are a waste.You do get some screwed up profiles and good ones. You should do your homework on those profiles. Personal experience..When they were searching for me I did get some stupid profiles which you just rule out but I always am grateful the marriage bureau coz I found my gem of a husband on one of those.

2Lakhs for what, normally it will not be more than 10K, where i had checked in a very reputed bureaus, i think they have taken u for a royal ride, secondly all marriage bureaus are fine, but the guys u get will be crazy, as u say, the profile says something, but they end up being something, this applies to both girls as well as to boys profile also. If they have given u some contract terms where an option of refund possible, explore it and get your money back.

Your parents have committed a blunder by paying that much amount. These bureaus do not take any responsibility. They only link two interested parties. Rest, you have to do your own investigations and then decide. For the sake of introduction only, one need not pay Rs.2 lacs. To attract good alliances, people also provide false information to these bureaus. Did they give any guarantee? If yes, claim the money back from them. Wait for your time. Unless the time comes, nothing will happen.

These people have cheated you. Many Indian Matrimonial websites are giving good customer service. I recommend one such matrimonial website www.dulhemiyan,com who are giving very genuine and economical assisted matrimonial services in india.
