Why does India think every brown woman with a white man is promiscuous?

The above article is proof of the shallow minded crap we have to put up with as a multi cultural couple.

Yes, getting married to an Indian woman was my choice,  but we shouldn’t have to suffer when we visit India.
We are also subject to stares and comments when we are traveling in India together.

My question is what gives people the right to question us about our marriage?

My wife used to wear sindoor and her mangalsutra in India to prove that we are married, she has since stopped doing this.
We don’t have to prove our marriage in Australia so why should we do it in India?

If Indians can’t accept the fact that an Indian woman is married to an Australian then THEY are the ones with the problem.

If my marriage offends you then great, but I don’t need your opinion because you sure as hell won’t like mine 😊

  1. It was a good read and insightful one. I am married to a person from different state and caste and it was an issue for many people around me. I can only imagine what you might have to go through!
